Re: How to Justify a Large-Format Scanner, Part 1

Art Post (Guest) ·
I've actually got a few spreadsheets that I developed that will cost justify a wide format system based on the amount of rolls an ink plotter is doing per month. If anyone wants it, send me an email and I will forward. Another good point is some companies are paying upwards of $20 per scan for wide format, it doesn't take too many of these to cost justify a laser/LED wide format device.

Re: rw240 plotting from Mac

JasonR ·
true, no supported Mac driver for these products, however, any generic plotter driver should be ok as long as it has the page sizes you need defined. Don't expect things like media type and tray selection to work, those would need to be accessed thru the PPD. By the way, PPDs are just text files that define the characteristics of the printer. If you find a PPD that works for you, you can open the PPD in any text editor and tweak it a bit. Example: *% ********* *% EFI Information Block *%...

Re: Ricoh 240 VS. Oce and Mita

That PPT says Océ has no web printing solution, but it does indeed offer not one but two, the Océ Print Exec Workgroup and Océ Reprodesk can both accept jobs from the web. They are additional options. The digital competitive matrix Océ information is incorrect in several areas, mostly regarding the controller. The TDS controller is not "customer suplied" you can only get it from Océ. Every system comes with a controller. They are not "embedded" they are a seperate PC that the plotter and...

OK, try this: On the desktop, set up a new folder, and name it ABC. In scanner settings box, use 215 dpi. select "scanner" for format size. In the main scanner settings box, under settings - options - general tab, select set and file. The path for the scan to file lights up - set for C://desktop/ABC then CLICK APPLY. Open a new set in scantool, and scan a 36 x 24 document. 1. Does it appear on your screen correctly? 2. Does the TIFF / PDF image appear back in the folder ABC on the desktop?

Re: selling external vs embedded controllers

External Windows PC over embedded controller in general: Ricoh's standard Windows PC can be repaired or updated by the customer, dealer technician or PC dealer in case of PC issue. Faster repair or swap with a standard PC in case of PC failure. If the Ricoh's PC has an issue, offline copying capability is not affected.

Re: Driver Installation Problem

JasonR ·
Ok. well, you can't do that =) You cannot run the setup program on the client PC, you have to browse to the printer and connect to it, allowing it to download the driver automatically. You can ONLY run the setup program on PCs that have a Ratio PCI card installed (i.e., directly connected to the plotter) If at this point you are getting the "no valid driver" error, then I suspect you have a network difficulty. You can try disabling the firewall on the Plotbase PC, and setting up a local user...

Yes. In AutoCad, go to plotter manager. Select the Plotclient HDI driver by double clicking. Select device options. Select custom. Select custom again in the middle of the screen that appears. On right side of next screen is a drop down - choices are Hide HDI dialog, enabe HDI dialog, or use HDI to Plotclient win. Select HDI to pc win. Now when your customer plots, the PC win will launch, allowing them to input job info.

Re: Plotbase and Bluebeam PDF plotting issues

fisher ·
Wow! A blast from the past. I have run into this exact issue a number of years ago an a machine running PlotBase. The problem is the layers in the CAD file are not being flattened properly. The file explodes when you try to plot it. The one solution I found was to open the offending file in Photoshop and then use Photoshop to convert it to a pdf or tiff and then plot it. Other than that you'd have to educate the person creating the pdfs with Bluebeam on how to get their settings correct and...

Re: Plotbase Dilemma Question

fisher ·
Why are they upgrading the PC???? Simply because Microsoft isn't supporting???? If so, my advice would be not to change a thing. The PC should be dedicated to the plotter and as such should not be doing anything out on the interwebs that would invite a virus in. Big can of worms to open on a machine that is that old especially with the lack of support from the defunct manufacturer of the Ratio controller. Opportunity to upgrade to a modern machine with internal controller.
