Will OMEGA 2.5 print straight to anything but a gerber printer?

Just got 2.5 a few weeks ago. Can I print and cut straight to my Mimaki equipment or is there a way to avoid any previous steps prior to 2.5.

We run ONYX 6.5 with 7.0 on the way.

Thanks for any help

I'm running Omega 2.1 straight to Roland SP-540V. Would think that 2.5 would run, no problem.

But I can't cut/print straight to Roland. I have to make an end run around Gerber to Corel to pick up the cut command.

My RIP isn't Onyx though. It's VersaWorks.

I would love to hear of your experience with 2.5.

Dave, there aren't a lot of Gerber guys on this forum running any digital printing except on Gerber stuff. I think that Gerber would like you to believe that you can only use their printers. Not true!

My Roland prints beautifully. But there are a couple of little things that need tweaking.

Threeputt I'm confused. You say you print "directly" to your ink-jet but then you say you export as eps.

Does the Roland provide a windows driver so you can "paper print" from any app, and / or do you always export to eps and use VersaWorks to "rip" your EPS ?

"Gerber would like you to believe that you can only use their printers", who said this ?
