Displaying one GdViewer region in another GdViewer

Hi. I am probably missing something really obvious but I am still new to this and am stuck so I thought I should write this. I have 2 GdViewers and the first viewer displays a full-sized large image from a disk file. I have managed to create a visible mouse-clicked selection rectangle within the first viewer by using the SetRectCoordinatesOnDocument method. It works well. What I want to do is then take that selection and display it within another GdViewer. However, I would like the original...Read More...

Oce PlotWave 450 Scan Question

Art Post
I'm reading the brochure for the OCE PlotWave 450/550. On page 9. I'm reading that the device will scan 47.9'/minute. Rounding off we get 48'. Thus to find the speed of inches per second I need to take 48x12=576 inches and then divide that by 60 seconds for a speed of 9.6 inches per second. Is this true? If so, that's really fast when compared to other devices. Can someone clarify?Read More...

Oce Plotwave 340

Jason H
Can anyone tell me some info on the Oce 340. I have googled and googled but there doesn't appear to be a lot out there or at least from my searches it seems that way. I took down a new client with 3 MFP's but they weren't doing anything with the Oce yet. I was wondering about how old it was, street price (he has basic machine with scanner), and any pro's or con's especially against the Ricoh 3600 series. Thanks in advanceRead More...

T2300 print head leaking issues

Art Post
Curious if someone can help. Of course I am looking to upgrade this device, however also looking to see what the issue may be for the HP T2300. The client has replaced all of the ink cartridges, in addition with all of the print heads. The system will not cycle up to a ready state and keeps repeating that all ink head replacement has not finished. In addition, every time we re-boot the system their is a puddle of black ink located on the right side of the carriage under. Can anyone help with...Read More...
We have an ink cartridge that holds 100ml he cost for the cartridge is $65. $65/100 = .65 per milliliter of ink I'm told that the amount of ink used in a standard wide format drawing would be under .1 milliliter per square foot. Let's call it .1ml for one square foot. The cost would then be .065 per square foot. Is this correct?Read More...

I have a client that threw me for a loop at the last minute. He broke out an 8x10 glossy photo print and wants to use a wide format scanner. He also needs to scan CAD drawings. I tried one of the smaller colortrac SMART LF's and both systems had white lines when scanning at hi-res. Any ideas> Would like to stay with something from ContexRead More...
It's here! A high quality, easy to install exit tray for the Ricoh wide format devices that will allow stacking of "E" size prints/copies to the front of the device. In addition, it's less than half the cost of the Ricoh OEM stacker tray. I was able to install one of these prototypes on a clients device, took me less than 15 minutes to install!!!

New Ricoh MP W6700

Art Post
Ok, just had a chance to review the brochure, it's on the Ricoh USA web site as of today. Couple of items I'm not a happy with. Dual Roll is a standard feature! No doubt, the MSRP be higher compared to the likes of OCE and KIP since they offer single roll devices. In the pas if someone asked me the percentage of single roll and dual roll that I sold, it would have to be 70% single and 30% dual. Mind you we still have to wait on the pricing, but I'm not expecting a reduction for two rolls vs...Read More...
