Texjet Rip v7 and Uk suppiers
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Everyone

Is anyone using the new texjet rip V7? Is it any good or worth upgrading to?

Also is there another supplier than amayauk that sell power inks etc for the texjet plus in the UK?

Reson I ask is that they are not even selling the new rip yet and from what i know it was released in feb 2015. Also that they have on there web page that the power inks (cmyk) are 47.50 per 250ml + VAT then they charge you 52 per 250m + VAT when you ring. (I ring due to some items not even being on the site like the new platens or parts lol):mad:

Thanks for any info in advance

I heard that in RIP V7 you can print white and color at one time. (There is option in RIP V6 called "white+color one pass" but it works in different way and printing doesn't look good for me - technician told me that in V7 it's ok). I think the rest is very similar.

Hi,

As zerg already wrote, the v7 has the single pass printing of white and CMYK at the same time, which has nothing to do with the older 1pass printing. Now, the result is almost identical to the double printing, saving you the dead times of the two passes.
Also, the v7 is Macintosh compatible, and it utilizes a far superior white mask creation suite (no photoshop is needed at all for your designs any more).
In general, the v7 was built from scratch (it's a new RIP, not an update) and is more sophisticated in every aspect (also, much faster in the rippinga and sending).

You can contact Amaya UK for a demo or more details.

Is there a manual available for version 7? My system is off line so the help system is of no use to me.
Thanks

I have a second TexJet PLUS which have on its cover "advanced". It have new system of tables (easier changing without scrubs). I had to install other computer with RIP 7 casue on the first I have v 6.

My mate from work downloaded it from devstudio.it/polyprint and tried to install it on Windows 7 but several errors occured during the installation (can't read/copy file etc, you can retry/ignore/cancel). What he did is retry, retry, retry... ingore :D

What's interesting RIP works but since yesterday I found a problem. When I send a print, the file is computing. It shows that computing is 100% but waiting for a sending. It sends only after my table is in home position. What's more I can't see what's printing in a printer manager even when it's already sended and is actually printing.

Guys, do you know any other source for a RIP 7? Maybe the file was corrupted or sth? Or you have any other tips?

Hi Zerg, if I understood correctly you are describing the normal operation of the RIP software. The actual print can only start when the table goes to the home position. And one of the new features of v7 is that the ripping/printing procedure happens 'on the fly'; meaning that the information doesn't have to be written in the printer queue first, but it's sent directly to the printer (this is why you can't see it in the printer properties).
Regarding the actual RIP, just make sure you have the latest version (1132 build) and if you are using Windows, make sure to connect the printer through the 'Windows Printer' option (not auto).

Does anyone know if there is any self help (I.e. A manual) for version 7 of the rip software. I am having real trouble with it and it's causing problems with my business.

Thanks

I am afraid that there's no such a thing. What problems are you having? Maybe I'll be able to help.

Hi Steve,

Early versions of v7 had some bugs which were solved with later versions. Make sure you have the 1132 build installed which for now is the latest one.

Apart from that and regarding the manual, there are installation instructions and white mask creation instructions. Please ask from your supplier to give them to you.

Hi Zerg
I seem to have a faint white outline around most of my images, and all text. It looks like the colour print is slightly smaller than the white mask print - but this is not the case! when I print the white mask, I can see the brilliant white outline around the grey areas of the white mask (hope that makes sense).
My images are saved in PSE in TIF format and I have tries saving with, and without "saved transparency" checked - no difference.

Thanks
Steve

Hi Kostas
Yes, I have build 1132. The use of the software is quite easy but when I have problems, the lack of a manual makes it very difficult to solve my own issues. At the moment I have tried lots of random settings trying to solve my problem (see reply to Zerg). Julien's team are also working on it.

A software manual would be really helpful, even if it only explains what each button does. I have tried lots of settings but sometimes I see no visible difference in the print, so not 100% sure what they do! Its quite frustrating.

Thanks
Steve
