I use an I1 with Eye -One Match software for building profiles to use in Signlab 8.
Signlab included an Advanced Calibration Wizard in SL8, but I think they pulled it out of subsequent versions?
It allows you to start with an existing profile that you like, re-set the parameters (passes, speed...
I see this discio error when I open a really old file, then try to save it again. It opens the Save as dialog with the file name hilighted.
I just delete the file from the list, then press save and it saves it again as the right name.
On my CJV30, the laser pointer is only used to read the reg marks for a print/cut job.
All it does is indicate how far away the reg mark is from the origin point.
So, you first set your origin on the machine, then you use the laser to set the amount of offset.
Yes I also use CCleaner (the free version). Do you use the upgraded version? I'll look into Avira.
And yeah, I'm sure you're right about Win 7 still being safe for years. As I said mine hasn't updated for the last 2 years or more anyhow.
I bet I can wring a few more years out of this rig yet.
Yes, I do have the original install disk for Win 7. I'll have to go and read up on how to "VM Win 7" etc...
Co-incidentally, I am free trialing AVG Tune up and it recently alerted me to the fact that my Windows update has been turned off for 780 days!
So, now I've updated it, hence the warning...
I also use this computer for web browsing, downloading, emails, everything.
I'm thinking if I ramp up my internet security, I can keep using it as is.
I'm not dead against upgrading Signlab. I'm all for supporting them, it's great software and a big part of my every day use.
But I have all my...
Been using Signlab 8 Print & Cut on my Windows 7 OS daily for years.
I like Version 8 - I'm comfortable with the UI and the workspace I created - but mostly because I make my own profiles for printing through VPM.
Now my Win 7 computer is telling me it won't be updated anymore, so look like an...
It'll be fine, don't worry about it. Once you get a good seal it will come good.
You really need to learn be able to change dampers, cap tops, capping stations and wipers by yourself.
Then have spares on hand for when these situations arise.
You can leave the head soak for a couple of days or...
I wonder why?
I use Signlab 8 and am perfectly happy with it. I've been using it every day for years. Almost exclusively.
Including making my own profiles with and for it. So I don't even have to use Rasterlink (or VW) for the Rip.
So sorry, can't answer your question...
Things you can check yourself -
when the machine does a clean, do you get much ink on the wiper?
Is the ink in the middle of the blade?
If you don't get much ink, it is probably the cap top that needs cleaning or replacing.
Also clean under the head so it makes a good seal. I use a small brush...
Marijuana is pretty much decriminalized here in Australia, but still not legal for sale for recreational use.
Pity, I reckon that's a good new business concept, that will be probably with us forever more.
Nothing much wrong with a bit of weed, I reckon. May as well make it available for people...
Have a look in the Mimaki sub-forum. It's full of these questions and answers.
I always suggest it's the cap top - not getting an air tight seal, not able to draw ink through the head.
It most always is.
Quite often I get a channel drop out 100%.
I take the head over to the left side, clean...
Yeah I agree. I wish you could override having it re-set the pinch rollers every time. It's a slow PITA and I never alter them anyway.
You just have to get used to it's quirks. And there's a lot of them!
One thing I'm still not used to - after about 5 years of daily use - is that stupid...
Yes, my CJV30 will do the same thing if I'm not careful to avoid it.
The front edge of the roll media can catch in one of the channels on the platen, causing it to dig in and rise up.
I print everything with the head in high position, to avoid contact when printing.
