    Currently 1200x1200 44 pass
    This part is both very fine detailed small writing and at same time its majority white. It is currently printing 50 x 2 so 100 pieces in roughly 24 hours. Are these settings the only way to achieve the fine details of the part or Can this be speeded up with less passes or different settings of some kind? Maintaining the quality Is priority but id like to find out if its possible to speed up production. The only way i can think of is to not uv print the white and after it prints just screenprinting the white flood last, any suggestions?

    44 pass is very high. I'd try to find a profile that is closer to 24 pass or lower if you can get away with it. Also, that profile is also set to standard speed. You should be able to go into the RIP and change it to high speed which will make the motor move faster but you'll have to decide if the quality is still good enough for you. Make sure you get your drop position alignment spot on as that will give you th ebest chance for crisp prints even at higher speeds.

    I don’t own one of these so just a couple ideas;

    drop passes and try uni directional print? You don’t need to worry about alignment then.

    print as normal then flood with white after.

    Or, we we did for similar decals today; reverse print on clear, printing the summa cutter marks (or whatever you prefer) cut a bit of white vinyl that just covers the print but not the marks. Mount white vinyl over the top and voila.

    These don’t look *that* detailed at all so 44 passes is definitely way too high.

    so the really the small white writing on the blue cards is like the size of your name on the front of a bank card thats not considered "that" detailed? were running the parts onto a take up roll with hundreds on it, when you say flood after are you saying screenprint or back on the mamaki uv printer somehow just printing the white?

    thank you very much. The small white writing on the blue cards is very small like 6-8pt font id guess, do you think 24 pass on high speed could still produce the crisp quality? basically im trying to speed things up but not sacrifice any quality.

    Why not spend 5 minutes and test out different passes/settings? Only you can see and determine what will be acceptable quality.

    Im in the middle of a hundred plus 24 hour plus run, Everything is working perfect right now, just running slow so I hate to stop it. To play around with the settings. Also white is on backorder. And I don't know when they're going to have more. It's been saying 10%. For half the day. So I plan on running as many as I can until the white runs out. Probably will have to screenprint the white flood for second half of order next week if white is still backordered. Thanks again for the input
