    Automatically print PDFs

    Hello there, we got a brand new printer/copier in the office but there are no Mac drivers, someone told me I could set up a RIP server which could be configured to watch a folder for new PDFs. Any idea which software can do this? thanks!

    I think there are many software that can do that. Im using Heidelberg MetaDimension and Harlequin Rip

    Most RIP software versions come with a hot-folder plug-in indeed. For example i know of Fiery who makes RIPs for Xerox Office products and they come with hot-folders for just that kind of thing. But the thing is the RIP runs on a separate computer that is connected to the copier. From your MAC you just click Print and select your printer and you're good to go. But actually what you do, is you install a "virtual printer" on your mac which just sends the data to the RIP server which prints it. So basically doesn't really matter if you have a Mac, because most RIPs will have virtual print drivers for mac and pc.
