    A suitable RIP depends on your need, Photo printing, Fine Art Printing, Proofing, DTG or maybe other purposes. Basically you absolutely need a RIP for Proofing and Faithful Reproduction work, otherwise there are easier, less costly and more productive solution.

    we use the R1800 for photo-printing. mainly it´s not a desktop-printer anymore but a flatbed-printer. we don´t print on t-shirts but other things (no textile). therefore we need to change the ink-limit which isn´t doable with just the printerdriver.

    For a free solution, Photoprint at [URL="http://blackfiveimaging.co.uk/index.php?article=02Software%2F01PhotoPrint"]http://blackfiveimaging.co.uk/index.php?article=02Software%2F01PhotoPrint[/URL] may suite your need. It uses Gutenprint that is highly configurable.
    For commercial solution, Acrorip, PowerRIP and many others should be able to help you control ink limit and density.
    However, since ink limit is a problem for you, I assume that you have no readily available icc profile. I believe color management will be your biggest issue, and I don't think there is an easy solution for that.

    until now we had a workaround-solution. i must admit that we print through coreldraw..

    we used the driver itself, selected a mediaprofile and deactivated ICM. printed cmyk-testchart, and created profile (PM5, GCR4, max-ink at about 135%). now my curiosity. we work with corel draw x4 for these printers. we selected this CMYK-profile and printed to a RGB-only printer. it worked pretty good.
    we want to advance to X5as we use it with our lfp-machines and versaworks.

    If you have profile, X5 should give you no problem.

    sure. but we only have a cmyk-profile. and the driver isn´t postscript so we can only print rgb.

    i am wrong, am i?

    i don´t have the print-dialog before my eyes atm. maybe there´s already a solution i´ve overseen.

    anyway. we still like to do it right and get a correct RIP. so we can control each single color (cmyk,blue,red, later maybe white).

    I think Gutenprint is your best bet. It is highly configurable (very complex). I am not aware of other system that can do cmykrgb with an optional white. Gutenprint can do that but it takes a lot of effort. You may start with WinGP (windows version of Gutenprint) and GIMP and expand from there. The ink definition is on the printer XML folder. The Photoprint software mentioned above should help you during testing periods.

    You can use AcroRIP, great RIP for R1800. I am just about to convert one R1800 to dtg
