This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago (Second Week of April 2014)

 

When I started in the business I was told all you have to get through is the first five years and then the rest is gravy. Meaning you could live off your lease renewals.  I'm thinking that was a BIG fat lie!

Enjoy these threads from ten years ago this week!

SalesServiceGuy, What Model Xerox? Is this true for all Xerox models? Can any Xerox folks confirm or add to this info? Thanks, Vince

When Ricoh came in to launch the MP 2353/2852/3353 we were told the same thing. However, there is nothing in print including the Competitive Zone which is supposed to be the results of testing everything.

No, only Autodesk software can print a dwg. If they publish it to a PLT, PDF or tif it can print it. A dwg is not a finished file.

If the customer does not AutoCAD we load Truview on there workstation. It is a free software from Autodesk and will print dwg's through the windows driver.

Why don't they just print out of AutoCAD?

this is the email I received from my customer: I was just informed by others that the Plot Works software that you have included in our deal, does not work with DWG files. As you know, we typically print from DWG files directly from AutoCad and not the DWF files that the software supports. I’m told that there is other software needed to allow DWG files to print.

It sounds like he is looking for the AutoCAD driver or just the Windows driver to print directly from AutoCAD.

The Old 480 dwg option was just a file converter, it would leave the old file on the server and the customer would call in with complaints that it was coming up with out of memory errors because it kept all the old files on the server and not delete them, at least that was our experience. I guess I'm confused as to why the customer is not just printing the dwg files out of AutoCAD with the AutoCAD driver and all the rest of his files with Plotworks.

k, so I guess what you are telling me is that the customer can print the DWG through autocad with the autocad print driver?

Sure, now granted it's been a while sense I've install the Ricoh one but it just installed in the "add a plotter" wizard within AutoCAD. The wizard is found in the plotter manager area within AutoCAD.

Our dealership recently received two new units, with bad starter cartridges. This was Mid-march. We have been told that the black ink is on back order. Has anyone else had any issues with this equipment, or Ricoh supplies?

I learned today that while a Xerox copier is processing a Searchable PDF, the engine is not available for any other task. Long complicated PDFs can knock the Xerox completely out of action for many minutes until the OCR task is completed.
