    I know that Versa Works has 3 different Print Speeds.
    But I saw a guy with the same Roland SP540v printer
    that I have print some print at a SUPER fast speed.
    I almost thought he was gonna brake his printer.
    The guy didn't seem to want to help anyone so he wouldn't
    tell us how he did it?
    Anyone know?

    Increase the head speed and reduce the number of passes = more speed.

    I think they mean carriage speed.

    In Versaworks it's labeled Head Speed.

    Lower resolution = faster. I get banding when I try to go fast.

    To my knowledge, RIPC is firmware-based, and is supported only on certain printers. The VersaCAMM line is not one that RIPC is available for. The XC and newer VersaART machines offer this, among others.

    I use Wasatch SoftRip and have created a very passable 450x360x4-pass banner profile that would output at approx. 160 SFPH (head speed of 1000, whatever that means). The one problem I've found with it is good reds are hard to come by as the saturation just isn't there, but other colors are quite good. On our normal everyday 720x720x8-pass profile it is putting out 64 SFPH (head speed of 760 I believe).
