Will OMEGA 2.5 print straight to anything but a gerber printer?

Discussion in 'Gerber Omega, Graphix Advantage & MacImprint' started by David Snider, Jul 25, 2006.

  1. Just got 2.5 a few weeks ago. Can I print and cut straight to my Mimaki equipment or is there a way to avoid any previous steps prior to 2.5.

    We run ONYX 6.5 with 7.0 on the way.

    Thanks for any help

    I'm running Omega 2.1 straight to Roland SP-540V. Would think that 2.5 would run, no problem.

    But I can't cut/print straight to Roland. I have to make an end run around Gerber to Corel to pick up the cut command.

    My RIP isn't Onyx though. It's VersaWorks.

    I would love to hear of your experience with 2.5.

    Dave, there aren't a lot of Gerber guys on this forum running any digital printing except on Gerber stuff. I think that Gerber would like you to believe that you can only use their printers. Not true!

    My Roland prints beautifully. But there are a couple of little things that need tweaking.
     
  4. Do you do any ripping with Gerber. Do you export as a .jpeg or .tiff?

    I use only VersaWorks for RIP'ing. I generally export my files as .eps.

    Threeputt I'm confused. You say you print "directly" to your ink-jet but then you say you export as eps.

    Does the Roland provide a windows driver so you can "paper print" from any app, and / or do you always export to eps and use VersaWorks to "rip" your EPS ?


    "Gerber would like you to believe that you can only use their printers", who said this ?
