Eric - Importing pdf's into Corel is a crapshoot. The earlier versions, even X3 & X4 would sometimes move and/or change things such as layer orders and even fonts. Sometimes if the pdf is complex enough, it won't import at all.
There isn't a manufacturer around (including Mimaki, Seiko, HP, Epson, Roland) that has not had an issue. As far as machinery is concerned, they are all junk - they all break. I am not completely up to speed on the Mutoh ink problem but I do know that Mutoh did not cause it. Mutoh did not...
Call Accugraphics in Florida 800-268-3672. Ask for Gary, Heather, or Ron. They ship worldwide and you will not have any issues.They have a drop-in aftermarket brand that will work, and not harm the machine or its components (as some suffered with the 11/10 inks). Since it is an older Falcon you...
Bob - You should be able to use one of the other Roland drivers. There are actually only a few drivers, regardless of the model name. Unfortunately it is a trial and error but essentially start with the PNC drivers.
They are all the same and they all keep making changes.
Call your local Cadlink dealer NOT tech support. You need a new dongle. The LPT dongle should have been traded years ago.
If you do not have anyone local, call Accugraphics (Florida) 800-268-3672. Ask for Gary or Heather and explain your...
David - Where are you getting your information from? Whoever told you that SL7 does not run on Win7 is wrong. As a matter of fact it will run on Vista64, which means that in will also go to Win7.
What has changed with many program vendors is the dongle. LPT dongles started getting phased out...
Soon is now. One of the large office supply chains did just that a few years ago. It turned out to be so profitable that many more similar deals have followed suit.
Mosh - Sorry to hear someone got into the chicken coup. Just remember - all the art is yours.
Wayne - I think you are way off here. I have never met or spoken to a painter that was not interested in teaching anyone how to do it. Never have I seen anyone "look down" on those that do not paint. The brush people are some of the most patient and friendly that one could ever meet.
What is the calculated summer efficiency for your part of the country?
What is the calculated winter efficiency for your part of the country?
What measures are in place to prevent weather damage or system/panel failure (ie - snow, etc.)?

My hat always comes off for those that can twirl a brush.
You're not kidding! Unless everything is alacarte (topolpathing, setup, sales, etc.) machine time needs to be $100/hr minimum.
Finishing is another thing that is taken for granted and lacks appreciation. To change this, we have made some fun unfinished samples that we give away freely. When...
Before you go that route....look for something like this:
Their asking price is a steal. Our GBC (60" Titan) easily does 150' in one shot, BUT like all laminators it takes practice (or training) for the confidence...
