    Rip with precise dot placement

    I work in a field that requires precise dot placement from the printer. I would be curious about users RIP experiences related to this. If you have specific comparisons, please share them.

    I'm currently running the E7600 with EskoArtwork's FlexRIP/FlexPROOF and we get fairly accurate dot proofs, but there is something left to be desired. The head honchos are looking to upgrade to the 7900 and we are being told that the 7900 dot proofs are leaps better than what is achievable with the 7600.

    Please elaborate on precise dot placement. Do you mean exact halftone values or accurate replication of dots per image (say you have two images that you want to have identical dot arrangements)?

    If its screen printing the Accurip, Multi Rip, Fast Rip and many others will do the postcript at the printer thing for film making positives. Which lets you define angle and shape and frequency of your dot from your image editing program. Nice feature. Expensive for the larger model versions... Ive read about Ghostscript but havent tried it in a while. Anyone had similar experiences?

    Neither PS nor PDF fully define scan conversion rules, so you may not be able to do what you want ... depending on what you want to do!

    you can output one bit tiffs from a rip and then recombine them or not and they will put the dots in the same place on multiple different devices

    try to adapt the resolution of the image to the printerĀ“s. 1440x 1440 if you are printing in this quality for example. No reescaling. If this is not working can be a spraying effect from the printheads, make sure that the alignment is perfect and print in unidirectional mode, slower but much more acurate.
