Re: Double Strike White

I included a link to a scan of the print. I laid the print onto black vinyl to make the issue easier to see. For reference, the horizontal bar on the T is .805” wide. With scanning it and zooming in, there are several issues in the area between the passes. There is a line where all of the white ink ...

Re: Double Strike White

It's amazing how hard it is to get a picture of white ink. Thanks for the response Phil. I re-ran the job with the default SCC settings and changed some things on the DC4sx, density is at 11,900 (which is what its been set to), changed the overlap to off, and the speed to medium. The attached pic lo...

Double Strike White

Didn't know if anyone has some tips for double striking a multi-pass white job so that you can get a good solid color. The issue I am facing is that the pass lines are extremely noticeable. You know you can always see them on any color in the right light, but with this white ribbon the output, in my...

Printing issue

Printing on static cling and it doesn't produce a clean fill on the first pass. There are some other issues with the file but its just due to lazy setup by the designer. Odd thing is that the yellow and magenta seems to print fine, the cyan was the first color laid down. Any settings that I can chan...

Re: Lines In Black Fill

You are getting creases in the ribbon, I think.

Had this happen before, try swapping the tray the ribbon is in, be sure to swap the chip too. See if it goes away and let us know.

Might go ahead and pass along then what program you are using, it might be software related.

Re: Vinyl spewing out the front

Using Flexi??

There is a patch to fix the problem, should be up in the Announcements section. Gotta love Scanvec.

Flexi issue, again.

So, we come back to yet another Flexi issue. Upgraded to the new 10.5 PDF release. Now Flexi will not rip any file sent to our DC4sx that contains a spot color, jobs with CMYK are fine, just no spots. I fired up 10.0.4 and it processed perfect, something to do with the new PDF rip option perhaps? Ju...

Re: Flexi (I know) feed issues with DC4sx

Got a word back from Flexi at 12:50am Sunday morning and he resent the same patch file. So the file that is linked above will work just fine. What, quit using Flexi? I am "too in bed" with it to use anything else, been using their products since the CASMate days. For me Illustrator and Corel absolut...

Re: Flexi (I know) feed issues with DC4sx

Looks like the issue is back with the latest update from SAi. Have an email into them complaining about why it wasn't included in the patch, and if the original file is fine to reapply.

Just thought I would pass it along.

Re: Flexi (I know) feed issues with DC4sx

I gave Muts a link to the file and he said he could post the file for anyone who needs it. This should only effect anyone running Flexi 10.

Re: Flexi (I know) feed issues with DC4sx

Feast or famine with SAi support, I looked into this before and got no where. This last time I was having problems with the main Flexi installation crashing, the DC4sx feeding vinyl, and no longer being able to poll our S140T and when I complained about all three problems I got two fixed. I think pa...

Re: Flexi (I know) feed issues with DC4sx

If anyone is having post-print feed issues like I mentioned contact Flexi.

They have an updated DC4 series file that seems to take care of the issue. I spoke with Eyal, and he was great to deal with.

Re: Matte or Mirror Gold ribbon

I would say a couple months ago I got a mailer from Summa with spot color samples of all the colors with the three new metallic/holographic as well as some print samples of them being used. Long time coming in getting us the matte metallics, and yes the holographic is pretty sweet.

Flexi (I know) feed issues with DC4sx

Having some feed issues with my DC4sx and Flexi. What basically happens is that after I send a print/cut job, that will be laminated and cut on another plotter, it feeds out additional vinyl that I am estimating matches the length of the print job. Example, I'm printing two feet worth of decals, aft...
