    Roland SP-540 rip

    What is the best rip to use for this printer? the one thats comes from Roland or something else?

    My name is Tom and I am new to this forum, and to the large format print business. I have an Roland SP-540 printer and wondered if anybody has come across a good rip software compatible with this printer.

    software

    Hello

    We have a sp-540v here and have used wasatch from day one.
    This rip just keeps on going. Have a look on the forum there is a ver. 6.6 that would be a good demo to try as wasatch has no official demo, just download image configs from their site or a manufactures.

    Regards

    You should try Wasatch. Or ColorGate. Both are really good rips for Roland printers.

    -

    I have a Sp-540 too. We do use Wasatch too, but only the old version - Colorip (not Softrip). It does everything whats needed - prints and cuts. The newer versions have some extra features, but they are really only extra.

    If you are interested - I can get you a copy of that.

    VersaWorks is best if you want to use all of the printers functions like perfcut and others.

    YES! As I know, Roland SP-300 is a print & cut machine, if you use other RIP, how to control SP-300i cut the picture?

    Onyx and Flexisign both have a print then cut feature, but VersaWorks will let you do more than just print then cut.

    The versaworks that are incluided with the Roland´s machines works absolutly fine with this model. You must to upgrade in www.rolanddg.com to the last version and you will see that you will print really fine.

    VersaWorks is the way to go. Its FREE from roland. FREE updates. Lets you use the optical eye on the printer for print, laminate, cut workflow. Roland Inteligent Pass Control is the best and allows you to print high speed without so much banding.

    Versaworks is great for me, but be sure to use proper color profiles. My initial textile heat transfer profiles produced blacks with visible "lines" throughout the print. But changing the profile yielded rich, consistent blacks.

    Hi,
    I'm printing on a VP-540i, which is close to your version. I've tried printing with many different softwares and as a personal result, I'd say that VersaWorks is quite practical, easy to get familiar with and not to expensive, however a software like Caldera VisualRip+ gives better results (less banding on low quality and medium profiles, better previews of print, and many other useful settings). I'd say the only inconvenient with Caldera is that it runs only under Mac OS, or Linux based (Kubuntu, Debian)...so exit Windows if you intend to use it.
    Best Regards.

    As printer2112 and musquoni stated - Rolands' VersaWorks software is the way to go. All you need to do is a firmware upgrade on the printer itself. It will then be able to print with the "Smart pass technology" which if I understand correctly what my colleagues say is wave-formed passes so you won't be seeing "lines" anymore.. in theory at least.
