    I just bought a 5 - 6 year old Mimaki JV3-160SP that came with RasterLink Pro software. The software is no longer supported by Mimaki, so I'm looking for the most reasonable software solution to get this thing up and running. Most of the stuff we do is industrial and I don't need FlexiSign or anything too fancy. We do design work with Adobe Illustrator and Gerber Composer, but I need the RIP software that runs the printer. We will mainly be doing banners initially. I am a total newbie to wide format printing as we mainly do screen printing and we have a Gerber Edge II, but the local Mimaki guy is coming to train me as soon I get the software issue resolved. Any suggestions? I can buy Raster Link Pro 2, but I'm wondering if that is the best option? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Thanks for your input. I think I am going to try to find someone who got Raster Link Pro 2 but has upgraded to Onyx or other RIP software. I am going to post a new thread looking for Raster Link Pro 2.

    You might try your local supplier, they might have a copy. RasterLink 3 and 4 Bundled uses the printer as a key, so i think it would work with a jv3.

    we still run rasterlink for out old jv3 and it works great with the colour profiles it has. i think last time the tech guys were here they were saying that rasterlink three is for the JV3's and the new versions of rasterlink work for the other printers in their range. but you can still get updated and profiles from mimaki.

    FYI - It's my understanding that the Rasterlink that comes with current JVs & my CJV-130 is a stripped down version of Wasatch...
