John, The PrintCopy Tool compares pretty favorably to Plotworks. I attached two documents to this post. The Product Support Guide lists differences between the two products. The PowerPoint has screen shots of all the settings in PrintCopy Tool. I hope this helps.

Re: Memjet Color Printers to the Rescue?

AD (Guest) ·
This is pretty impressive, but has been around for several years. There have to be significant issues that have prevented adoption. I suspect that clogged nozzles are a really expensive problem for intermittent use machines, and imagine the level of ink wasted keeping them fresh. Folks throw a fit about a $600 print head for a Canon plotter and it's guaranteed for a year. I see a limited market for this.

Re: Would You Loan this company Money?

Hi Art, I agree. Ricoh needs an entry level 4 D/min system. I have always thought Ricoh should take thier gel sprinter technology and develop a plotter around it, instead they rely on Epson to fill this void. They seem ready to concede the 4 d market to Oce, Kip and the plotter cometitors. I wonder if it is the aftermarket that drives the decision. With a 4 D-Size per minute you are generating less clicks and less aftermarket revenue. Perhaps they want use limited dollars to develope higher...

The AEC market is in the dumps, however more and more of my clients are opting to buy the 240W's and 2400W's from the leasing company rather than spend for a 6ppm system!! Ricoh will be introducing a gel plotter in the summer, and oh my, the gelsprinters were the worst and I hope these are very different. The piezo print head is not geared for low volume users.

Personally I think it's ugly! It is much needed but I'm more in favor of also have a 24 plotter too. We still have nothing that can compete in the $10K range for Architects or Surveyors that want an MFP but only need 24x36 output. The retail on this system is about $15k.

Re: CW2200SP

fisher ·
Just browse through the brochure and documentation for the Canon. The user interface on the MFP is weak. Its a plotter with a scanner (probably a Contex) added. The Ricoh MFP has our standard user interface. Anybody who has a Ricoh MFP of any kind can walk up to this new machine and know exactly how to use it. Would be interesting to see a Monster Garage featuring the two products.

Yes, that's the nice thing about the Canon system you can hook it up to any of there plotters. So if you have a customer looking for high end graphics you a graphics plotter if the customer is AEC you go with the 700 series.

There are no laser based wide format color systems out there from the major manufacturers. If there are, they are price prohibitive. What your customer would find would be a couple of systems to meet his or her needs. Oce has a TCS400 system which is a separate scanner, controller and printer. They can scan the color document and direct it to print on the inkjet printer. No doubt an expensive output solution because it is ink based. Probably looking at the $40,000 range for this one.

SNMP connection between the Client PC and Server PC is blocked. Just turn off the firewall on the server PC, or have the IT guy allow an exception for port 161. You can still print from the Client PC, even if you get the SNMP message, just can't be certain whether the plotter is on line and ready.

Re: When selling wide format

Thats one of the biggest cost is for outsourcing the copies. Another is the cost to produce a drawing on a plotter compared to the cost on our system. John and I spoke the other day and we believe the savings is .45 - .65 cent savings per "D" size drawing. Any others?? Art

Art, Can you shed some light on how you came up with the savings per page vs. a plotter? I haven't delved into the world of connected wide format very often in the past, so this is all new to me (but the FW240 has me psyched on breaking into this market) Also, am I right in my assumption that plotters can only produce line drawings with no fill or gray scale?

Brian: Here we go. When calculating cost of the HP plotters there are two main costs associated with these systems. Paper and Ink. The ink is liquid ink the same type used in ink jet printers. I have calculated and done some very good guessing and have arrived at the cost of .07 cents per square foot for the cost of ink on an average HP plotter. Based on a "d" size drawing which is 24x36 or 6 sqaure feet. The cost for ink is about .42 cents give or take for more or less coverage. I think the...

we lost due to "little things" the owner wanted that KIP does: Like color scanning to print directly to a Canon color plotter, SEEING a watermark you create and import onto a print job prior to printing, and (mostly) overall processing speed on a problem multi-page PDF they had that the KIP printed faster.

Re: Plotbase and PC3

This is an AutoCAD function and should work with any HDI or windows base printer. As long as everyone is using the same plotter or printer (they are). Example: when you create a MS word document and print it out, then, save the document. You also save the printer setting with the document (8.5*11, landscape, margins, layout…) this is the PC3 file. This file can be placed into other files as a default printer setting.

BigMac, I think you are in good shape here. The Ricoh has the following advantages. Copy mode is a 6-1 speed difference and higher copy quality on the Ricoh. Scanning will be much better on the Ricoh. How do I know, because I have tested it against the HP. One roll feed and only a 150' roll at that. Do they really want to change paper that often? What about different sizes? The only advantage I see for HP is up to 42" wide size and color output/scanning. Only if the customer has a...

Ok, 1st, that plotter status should always say that unless you have AutoCAD loaded on the PC. It isn't actually an error, it's simply telling you you don't have AutoCAD installed so it won't process DWG files. I *think* it is totally unrelated to your issue.

Jason, in Canada the IPF models are sold through the dealer channel but in the US they're sold through the consumer channel. I've had a situation too where a customer purchased it in the US for less than my cost. I've had success using those systems to knock out customers who are replacing their toner-based Oce systems. They're expecting to pay $10-20,000 and a Canon inkjet plotter is $2000. There's not always great margins in them but they're a foot in the door to the MFP and supplies.

I remember him saying at the time that if an HP Plotter was going through a roll of paper a month (150 prints) then you could place a 240W for less than the supply costs of the HP.

I've spoken to Monte (fellow P4P'er) on this subject and his take is that most of these units will choke when trying to process large files (many documents to be scanned).

I will also test when it comes out and I'm hoping I'm done before December!!!
