34 Copy print images for cutting later (Sticker Print) Copy print images for cutting created with FineCut. With FineCut, it is possible to add register marks around the edge of images for cutting around the borders. When these images are read by RasterLinkPro5 SG, if a printer driver is used, white space may be added outside the register marks. This happens especially when paper larger than the image is set for printing in the printer driver. In this case, if a Interval is set for the copy, since an extra margin is added to the white space around the images, the margin appears bigger than the margin set when the image is printed. With this function, the margin added outside the register marks is removed, then the specified margin is added between the images for copying to avoid this problem. Also when cutting the images with a cutting plotter, it is necessary to specify whether the cutting plotter will read the right or left register mark first. The Reference Line indicate which of the right or left register marks to specify in the cutting plotter. When you output an image using the printer driver Cut data created by FineCut When you specify the bigger paper size than the image to output using the driver, extra margins are added around the data.

81 Color Edit 3. Illustration/Image Set Color matching for each of the illustration part and image part in one file separately. Gray balance: ICM: Available with CMYK data. The colors designated by data are mixed in such a way that no other color is mixed. Gray balance is inferior to ICM in the accuracy of color matching. If a Version 3.0 device profile generated by converting a Version 2.0 device profile is selected on the [Print Condition] screen, you cannot select gray balance. Color matching is processed with ICC Profile. Usually, select this option. Perceptual: Colorimetric: Relative: Absolute: Suitable to print images (photos). Color matching is performed so that the brightness of the whole image will be highly near to that of the input image. Suitable to illustrations. Color matching is performed so that printing will be achieved in as deep color as possible. Color matching is performed so that the print colors relative to white will approximate to those of the input image. When the color of the media is different from the white that works as a reference for the colors of the input image, the print colors vary with the media. For example, if yellowish media is used for printing, the whole print is slightly yellowish compared with the input image. Color matching is performed so that the print colors will approximate to those of the input image without being affected by the media color. When the color of the media is different from the white of the input image, an effort is made so that the color of the media will be near to the white of the input image. Therefore, there may be a case where ink is ejected even without any image to be printed. Pure K, Pure C, Pure M, Pure Y: For data prepared in primary colors, that is, cyan, magenta, yellow, and/or black, printing is carried out without color matching, thus preventing any other ink from being mixed. 4. Input Profile (ICM) Select an Input Profile for RGB data and CMYK data individually. The profile is Gray balance mode when the check box is unchecked. In case the input image has the specific profile such as scanner, specify the profile as the input profile to improve the color repeatability.

87 Color Edit To Adjust Color in Detail (Ink Curve) If output is not obtained in your desired colors even by changing ink densities, adjust the ink curve of each kind of ink. The method of adjusting ink curves differs according to the version of the device profile. Version 1.0 and 2.0 device profiles Ink Limit : Adjust ink density to all the colors. Gray Balance : Adjust ink density using only four colors of Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. Gray Balance is only available in Version 2.0. Gray balance is valid only when you have selected gray balance on the Color matching menu ( P.80). The setting of Ink curve is reflected over the whole area without distinction between the image part and illustration part. Ink Limit Curve Gray Balance Curve Refer to Adjusting Ink Curves ( P.89) for how to adjust ink curves. 87

96 Color Replacement This section explains the function (Color Replacement) for setting the ink color and ink density used for a specific color in the original image. Rabbit color (gray) Output with white ink Color Replacement method There are four methods for Color Replacement. Color Replacement of spot color names In Adobe Illustrator and the like, special colors called spot color or special colors can be created. Spot colors must be named. In RasterLinkPro5 SG, an ink color and density is specified for these names. Spot color name:spot1(c=0% M=0% Y=0% K=20%) Output:C=0% M=75% Y=75% K=0% C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=20 C=0 M=75 Y=75 K=0 96

97 Color Replacement Color Replacement of CMYK It is possible to replace the CMYK colors of vector objects with other ink colors. When the same color is being used for a different vector object in the image, that color will also be changed. Input:CMYK (C=100%, M=0%, Y=100%, K=0%) Output:C=0% M=100% Y=100% K=0% C=100 M=0 Y=100 K=0 C=0 M=100 Y=100 K=0 Color Replacement of gradations Specify the ink color and density of gradations. For example, replace color from a cyan gradation to a white gradation, with specified density. Input:C=100%, M=1%, Y=1%, K=1% Output:C=0%, M=0%, Y=0%, K=0%, W=100% C=100 M=1 Y=1 K=1 C=0 M=1 Y=1 K=1 C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=0 W=100 Replace any one color of CMYK with multiple inks Print an image in CMYK color mode with specified inks for any one color of CMYK. C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=0 W=0 Multiple inks can be selected. However, light ink cannot be specified. In this mode color replacement of Raster images is also possible. This is used when printing the entire image with only specific inks. For example, this is convenient when printing monotone images with white ink. Input color: Cyan C M Output: White W Y K 97

109 Color Replacement Replacing spot colors and CMYK colors This section explains the spot colors and CMYK colors replacement method. When replacing CMYK colors, if the same color is being used for a different vector object, that color will also be changed. Replacement of colors where Adobe Illustrator filter effects such as drop shadows, transparency, and gradations are applied may not be performed correctly. RasterLink data output from FineCut or SimpleStudio may have the following spot colors added. Do not specify color replacement for these spot colors. MPC_FRAME_DATA, Mimaki Register Mark, and Around Mimaki Register Mark Specify the original color for replacement There are two methods to specify this. When the original color for replacement is specified, the replacement information setting screen can be edited. To replace multiple colors, check Set multi color replacement. (1) Select from the Replacement information list Select the color name from the list for replacement. Spot colors and registered CMYK colors are displayed. (2) Select from the Preview screen Place the cursor over the Preview screen, and click the location for Color Replacement. Since CMYK colors are not initially displayed in the Replacement information list, select this method. When a original color is specified, until it is unselected, the color information specified by the cursor on the preview cannot be displayed on the input screen. Click 2 1 Unselect the original color for replacement There are two methods for unselecting the color. (1) When the Replacement information list is selected, press the Esc key. (2) Place the cursor over the preview, and right click. 109

110 Create ink information after replacement There are two ways to create ink information after replacement: entering an ink density manually, and retrieving it from a color collection. Entering Ink Density Manually Select the original color to replacement. 1 In the Output information screen, enter the ink density for the color of the ink to use. Click Setup. 2. Setting 3. Click 1. Select 2 The Color Replacement information is set. The color reproducibility for DIC colors (output values) in a color collection varies, depending on the currently selected device profile as follows: For version 3.0 device profiles containing highly accurate color replacement information: Colors closer to DIC colors can be reproduced. For other device profiles: Accurate colors may not be reproduced. 110

111 Color Replacement Retrieving from a color collection1 1 Select a color to be replaced. On the Color Collection screen, open a color collection folder for color replacement. 2.Open 1.Select 2 Select a color patch. Click Setup. The color replacement information is set. 2.Open 1.Open 111

112 Obtain ink information from color collection2 If the original color to be replaced is a DIC spot color registered in a color collection, the appropriate output value can be automatically retrieved from the color collection without needing to set an individual output value. 1 Click All Selections. You can select an individual color to be replaced from the list. Click 2 Click Output Value Acquisiotion. If the original color to be replaced is a DIC color, and its replacement color is beyond the color reproducibility of the printer, the color difference between the original color and its replacement color is shown. -> This indicates that the DIC color cannot be reproduced. Click The color replacement information is set. 112

113 Color Replacement Retrieving from a color collection3 Colors other than DIC colors in an image can also be retrieved from a color collection and registered into the current color replacement definition file. This eliminates the need for setting individual color replacement values by using the color replacement definition file if DIC colors in the image match spot colors registered in the file. 1 On the Color Collection screen, open a color collection folder for color replacement. Select a color patch. Press the Ctrl key + A key on your keyboard. (You can select more than one patch, pressing the Ctrl key.) Click Export. Click 2 Select Display unused color in the color replacement set. The output values for the spot colors not in the image are set. Select 113

114 Following are cautions when using spot colors with changed density in an image. RasterLinkPro5 sets ink density with respect to a spot color density of 100%. The ink density is calculated automatically based on the spot color density. Example: If a special color called Spot (display color given by C=100, M=0, Y=0, K=0) is printed at 100% density in one area and at 50% in another in Illustrator, and the ink density for Spot is set to C=0, M=80, Y=20, K=0 in RasterLinkPro5, the ink density for Spot in the area printed at 100% becomes C=0, M=80, Y=20, K=0 and the ink density for Spot in the area printed at 50% becomes C=0, M=40, Y=10, K=0. The color for a spot color displayed in the Color Replacement information list may be different from the display color specified in Illustrator. This is because the input color of the spot color displayed in the Color Replacement information list displays the colors matched to the density of the spot color detected first on the image in RasterLinkPro5. Example: If a special color called Spot (display color given by C=100, M=0, Y=0, K=0) is printed at 100% in one area and at 50% in another in Illustrator, and RasterLinkPro5 detects first the area where Spot is printed at 50%, the display color for Spot in the Color Replacement information list is set to C=50, M=0, Y=0, K=0. Rolling the cursor over a spot color on the preview screen displays the display color that matches the spot color density under the cursor in Input. However, if the mouse is clicked, the information displayed in Input becomes the content of the Color Replacement information list independently of the density of the spot color at the clicked point. Delete ink information after replacement Select the replacement information to detect the ink information after replacement. Click Delete on the Output information screen. The Color Replacement information is deleted. 2. Click 1. Select 114

115 Color Replacement Switch displays Replacement information list The Replacement information list can be changed as follows. Display replaceable color in the image Display the color replacement definition whose color replacement can be specified in the color replacement set. Display unused color in the color replacement set Display the color replacement definition whose color replacement cannot be specified in the color replacement set. Display all definitions in the color replacement set Display all color replacement definition information in the color replacement set. 115

116 Preview When [Display selected color in negative] is checked, colors that are currently editable appear flashing in the preview. When [Display selected color in negative] is checked, even when colors for editing are changed, colors that were previously selected appear flashing. To change the locations that appear flashing for reselected colors, click Update Preview. Alternatively, check [Display selected color in negative] again. When gradation replacement is displayed in negative, only high density parts appear in negative. Create the swatch library When you click the Create Swatch button, you can create a swatch library using contents registered in the [Color replacement set]. For the creation method, refer to Reference guide - Common features for every printer Create the swatch library. ( P.112) 116

117 Color Replacement Replacing gradations Restrictions on gradations for which Color Replacement is possible The following restrictions apply to gradations for which Color Replacement is possible. Only vector objects created with Illustrator Color Replacement cannot be performed for vector objects created with Illustrator that are treated as follows Objects with split, extention applied Rasterized objects Color Replacement cannot be performed for gradations created with Photoshop and for Rasterized gradations. The colors of gradations that can be specified are as follows. The combination of maximum density and minimum density of gradations are as follows. Maximum density (%) Minimum density (%) C M Y K C M Y K Maximum density Minimum density 117

118 118 If a midpoint is introduced between the maximum density and minimum density of a gradation by Gradation slider and the color is changed, color replacement cannot be performed. Color Replacement of gradations that include a lot of clipping paths may not be performed correctly. Color Replacement of gradations that use Illustrator filter effects such as Drop Shadows and Transparency may not be performed correctly. Illustrations with the same colors as those included in the gradation are also replaced. Example: Maximum density C = 100, M = 1, Y = 1, K = 1 Minimum density C = 0, M = 1, Y = 1, K = 1 If a C = 50, M = 1, Y = 1, K = 1 illustration is included in the data, it will be color replaced. Even if the setting of replacing gradations seems can be performed on the Gradation screen, the replacement will not be performed depending on the data. Check if the replacement will be performed or not, by reduced print in advance without fail. When the Illustrator setting Compatible Gradient and Gradient Mesh Printing is checked, gradation replacement cannot be set.

When you print using the printing condition set by the RasterLinkPro5 SG, be sure to set the Priority Order of the printer main body to HOST. If you set it to PANEL, the printing condition set by the RasterLinkPro5 SG is ignored, and printing will be performed using the printing condition set at the printer side. (For the details of setting method of Priority Order, refer to the operation manual of the printer.) Refining the device profile Displays the refined device profile.( P.147) 2. Device Profile list Indicates profiles for optimum printing. Click and select the profile to be used. Select the device profile depending on the ink set of the printer main body. For example, when you fill up six-color ink in the printer main body, even if you select the seven- or eight-color device profile at the RasterLinkPro5 SG side, you cannot print properly. 144

145 Editing Print Condition The available resolution depends on the Device Profile that is preinstalled. In case the corresponded Device Profile is not exist, install the appropriate profile. (The corresponded profile may not be preinstalled.) Device profiles contain the recommended print condition settings (number of passes/number of overprints/print direction/whether fast printing). If conditions other than these are used, a suitable print quality cannot be obtained. Device profiles are created with the optimal conditions for each media, so use the device profile for the media you are using. If the media and device profile do not match, a suitable print quality may not be able to be obtained. Use the following procedure to set the recommended values of the device profile as the print conditions. When the profile version is V3: Select the profile to automatically set the recommended values. When the profile version is V2: Select the profile to set the initial values. These values are not the recommended values of the profile. For a profile with the recommended values included in the media name, follow the instructions below to set the recommended values as the print conditions. Example 1:If the media name is UV-PET v2(1l4pbh), the values in parentheses are the recommended values. 1L 4p B H Number of overprints 1L: 1 overprint layer 2L: 2 overprint layers Number of passes Print direction B:Bi-direction U:Uni-direction Fast print H: ON None:OFF * If a hyphen (-) is inserted between the number of overprint layers and number of passes, the values are basically the same as the above. Example 2:If the media name is PVC Gloss(1Layer), the value in parentheses indicates the number of overprint layers. 1Layer: 1 overprint layer 2Layer: 2 overprint layers In the case of a profile that does not include the recommended values in the media name, perform a test print with the initial values, and change the print condition settings if you determine the print quality to be poor. 3.

    Mimaki JV3 160S Boot Up Problem

    Hey all,

    First off, any information will be better than the none am currently stuck with.

    Had an issue last week for error code 07 (----*-) so I called my tech man and got some testing info.
    Swapped the two print head cables on the slider board for the indicated head... Power off, Unplugged, glove-wielding, and carefully matching connectors.
    Received error code 07 as expected but with (-----*) as it should. I then powered down the printer, unplugged said printer and left it that way while I ordered parts and waited for shipping. Turned it on shortly before receiving parts, head still unplugged from slider board, to check ink levels and everything was normal as could be.
    Later that afternoon after some install fun I returned to the print room, parts in hand.
    Turned the machine off (when I say turned it off I mean that I push green button on front, white button on back and then unplug the power cable) waited a few minutes while I got the parts out then I began unplugging the slider board that I was going to replace.
    I ordered two head to slider data cables and a new slider board for the head to slider replacement.
    I Removed all cables connected to the slider board as well as the 3 cables connected on the left of the board, as you would have to replace the board.
    Plugged the 2 new data cables for the head, into the head.
    Took the (OLD)slider board off, Replaced it with (NEW)slider board and proceeded to plug the top 5 ribbon cables back in.
    It its possible that I may have crimped these cables upon putting them back in for the space was tight and didn't have too many options... Later realized grid-pattern needle-nose pliers worked well to grab the cables from the sides to effectively insert them more accurately and gently. However, I digress.
    May have crimped main cables upon inserting them back into the board(NEW)/*\ put every other cable back into its respective slot.
    ***NOTE: To remove and install the new slider board I used a Ryobi cordless drill with a chuck setting of 1, for those of you that don't know, that is less than a usual hand tightening***
    Once everything was back in order I plugged the machine power cable back in, turned power on(white switch first then green button on) and I could hear the fans come up but not the usual capping station clicking, carriage movement, and display screen readout of "BOOT-then-V3.10" in fact nothing other then the fans even happened.
    To sum this up, I follow those same steps in reverse to put the (OLD)board back in and try it again seeing as it worked fine the morning that I began the swap.
    Still to the same tune as the (NEW)board... Fans and nothing more.
    Followed the same steps back to the new board... Nothing more than fans.
    Followed my usual safety steps, Unplugged all the cables, plugged the machine in, turned it on...white then NOT green... and I left it on probably an 2 hours ago... bear in mind the new slider board is in. The cables, all of them, are unplugged and I figured I would look into some issues or solutions someone else has had after spending half of the interim checking almost every cable on the machine and no signs of wear or damage. Checked every board except power board and they look fine(which anyone who knows about circuit boards knows that just because they look fine doesn't mean there is nothing wrong but a visual inspection is usually a good start).
    And that is the tale of how this Cali-Boy got stumped.

    Now that I have finished this essay, does anyone know how to get ahold of wiring diagrams of these machines or is that Mimaki technical classified stuff?

    Atop of all my spiel, where you see this /*\ in my writing, the machine, after the final steps I mentioned about surfing the web for solutions my printer gave an all inspiring beep. A beep that said hey dad im back from the dead. So if you have this problem, and im not out of the frying pan just yet, then maybe just try what I did. Ill let you all know how the replugging goes. Just remember to wear rubber gloves when messing with those boards and be gentle with your wires people those circuit safety precautions aren't for you they're for your wallet... Printer parts aren't cheap.

     

    Why do I need a RIP?

    Printers need the information which has to be printed converted into print dots depending on the resolution.

    Printing of bitmaps is also possible with the driver included in printer package, as long as you are not very demanding on quality, edge sharpness, color resolution and speed.
    Computing algorithms in the software RIP optimize output speed and quality compared to generic printer drivers.

    Printapplications for architecture, technique, construction and CAD benefit as well from the possibilities of a RIP. Technical applications like construction drawings and CAD prints require a high-contrast text and edge-sharp lines for line drawings. It also requires good color properties for constructional figures and templates. Via the virtual PostScript Windows printer driver of Pjannto RIP one can print directly out of AutoCAD or CATIA. Compared to the driver provided with the printer Pjannto RIP can print in any length and size (using tiling).

    In order to output edge-sharp vector data, which were designed in usual layout programs e.g. CorelDRAW, Freehand, Illustrator, QuarkXPress, and to use the scaling advantage of vector-based data, Pjannto RIP uses, just like any other professional RIP, the PostSript format.

    In the figures below the logo 'Pjannto RIP' is a positioned EPS. With a simple printer driver only a bitmap preview picture of the EPS is printed (Fig. 1). With a RIP all vectors existing in the EPS file are printed in best possible quality (Fig. 2).


    Fig. 1: Brochure printed with simple printer driver


    Fig. 2: Same brochure printed with a RIP

    Professional RIPs use color profiles for the 'true color' output. They ensure a 'true color' and high-quality print result. For each printer/ink/material combination a color profile must be generated. Also for cost effective types of paper an individual profile can be made, with which one can cut down costs.

    RIPs ensure an optimal control of all usual color printers with the respective machine-specific possibilities.

    Who can benefit from usage of RIP software?

    Basically everybody who wants to print vector data and edge-sharp letters. All who want to output photos and bitmap data as real as possible (true color). For jobs where printing speed is decisive. All who own a digital printer without PostScript interface. All who want to print without length limit from a roll. All who have to segment jobs.

    This could be:

    Advertising agencies, architects, artists, construction engineers, copy shops, decorators, designers, digital printers, do-it-yourself stores, evaluators, photographers, real estate brokers, retail store chains, screen printers, signmakers

    Product info

    Pjannto RIP is made for users of inkjet, laser, thermo transfer and solvent printers. Its professional functionality allows usage of newest generation printers - especially large format printers. It supports printer parameters like 6 color support, variable dot, cut off, media heating, form feed correction etc...

    Its excellent price/performance ratio makes it very interesting for owners of older digital printers from Encad, HP and Epson.

    Before printing side previews are generated. Pjannto RIP jobs are preinterpreted in order to decrease waiting time. This increases productivity because preinterpreted data is stored and can be printed with different resolutions, sizes, print parameters without time consumption.
    Productivity is strongly increased by storing the before-interpreted data. Each job, which was already once interpreted or printed, can always be printed again without large delay. This applies, even if scaling, resolution or other print parameters have changed!

    Pjannto RIP prints directly bitmap formats (JPEG, JPEG2000, TIFF, GIF, BMP) besides EPS, PS and PDF.

    This firewire board can also be used on JV4 series printers. All 1394 boards are interchangeable. Fujitsu 1394 IC chip – for JV3/JV4 Firewire. Here is a IC chip – 1394 Driver for a Mimaki JV3 Firewire board.

    If you had a serious electrical surge, and your computer doesn’t detect the printer anymore, there’s a good chance that the 1394 card has burned out due to a voltage spike. Replacing this chip may fix your problem. These ICs are typically the ones that burn first. You should also check out the surrounding resistors as well as a couple transceivers on the board too.

    The firewire chip is easily damaged by voltage spikes more so than other FW products so it is very important to connect and disconnect the firewire cable ONLY WHEN BOTH THE PRINTER AND COMPUTER ARE OFF. These IC chips are difficult to obtain and thus the high price of the component. However, it is a lot less than replacing the uber -expensive board with a new one.

    34 Copy print images for cutting later (Sticker Print) Copy print images for cutting created with FineCut. With FineCut, it is possible to add register marks around the edge of images for cutting around the borders. When these images are read by RasterLinkPro5 SG, if a printer driver is used, white space may be added outside the register marks. This happens especially when paper larger than the image is set for printing in the printer driver. In this case, if a Interval is set for the copy, since an extra margin is added to the white space around the images, the margin appears bigger than the margin set when the image is printed. With this function, the margin added outside the register marks is removed, then the specified margin is added between the images for copying to avoid this problem. Also when cutting the images with a cutting plotter, it is necessary to specify whether the cutting plotter will read the right or left register mark first. The Reference Line indicate which of the right or left register marks to specify in the cutting plotter.

    81 Color Edit 3. Illustration/Image Set Color matching for each of the illustration part and image part in one file separately. Gray balance: ICM: Available with CMYK data. The colors designated by data are mixed in such a way that no other color is mixed. Gray balance is inferior to ICM in the accuracy of color matching. If a Version 3.0 device profile generated by converting a Version 2.0 device profile is selected on the [Print Condition] screen, you cannot select gray balance. Color matching is processed with ICC Profile. Usually, select this option. Perceptual: Colorimetric: Relative: Absolute: Suitable to print images (photos). Color matching is performed so that the brightness of the whole image will be highly near to that of the input image. Suitable to illustrations. Color matching is performed so that printing will be achieved in as deep color as possible. Color matching is performed so that the print colors relative to white will approximate to those of the input image. When the color of the media is different from the white that works as a reference for the colors of the input image, the print colors vary with the media. For example, if yellowish media is used for printing, the whole print is slightly yellowish compared with the input image. Color matching is performed so that the print colors will approximate to those of the input image without being affected by the media color. When the color of the media is different from the white of the input image, an effort is made so that the color of the media will be near to the white of the input image. Therefore, there may be a case where ink is ejected even without any image to be printed. Pure K, Pure C, Pure M, Pure Y: For data prepared in primary colors, that is, cyan, magenta, yellow, and/or black, printing is carried out without color matching, thus preventing any other ink from being mixed. 4. Input Profile (ICM) Select an Input Profile for RGB data and CMYK data individually. The profile is Gray balance mode when the check box is unchecked. In case the input image has the specific profile such as scanner, specify the profile as the input profile to improve the color repeatability.

    87 Color Edit To Adjust Color in Detail (Ink Curve) If output is not obtained in your desired colors even by changing ink densities, adjust the ink curve of each kind of ink. The method of adjusting ink curves differs according to the version of the device profile. Version 1.0 and 2.0 device profiles Ink Limit : Adjust ink density to all the colors. Gray Balance : Adjust ink density using only four colors of Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. Gray Balance is only available in Version 2.0. Gray balance is valid only when you have selected gray balance on the Color matching menu ( P.80). The setting of Ink curve is reflected over the whole area without distinction between the image part and illustration part. Ink Limit Curve Gray Balance Curve Refer to Adjusting Ink Curves ( P.89) for how to adjust ink curves. 87

    96 Color Replacement This section explains the function (Color Replacement) for setting the ink color and ink density used for a specific color in the original image. Rabbit color (gray) Output with white ink Color Replacement method There are four methods for Color Replacement. Color Replacement of spot color names In Adobe Illustrator and the like, special colors called spot color or special colors can be created. Spot colors must be named. In RasterLinkPro5 SG, an ink color and density is specified for these names. Spot color name:spot1(c=0% M=0% Y=0% K=20%) Output:C=0% M=75% Y=75% K=0% C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=20 C=0 M=75 Y=75 K=0 96

    97 Color Replacement Color Replacement of CMYK It is possible to replace the CMYK colors of vector objects with other ink colors. When the same color is being used for a different vector object in the image, that color will also be changed. Input:CMYK (C=100%, M=0%, Y=100%, K=0%) Output:C=0% M=100% Y=100% K=0% C=100 M=0 Y=100 K=0 C=0 M=100 Y=100 K=0 Color Replacement of gradations Specify the ink color and density of gradations. For example, replace color from a cyan gradation to a white gradation, with specified density. Input:C=100%, M=1%, Y=1%, K=1% Output:C=0%, M=0%, Y=0%, K=0%, W=100% C=100 M=1 Y=1 K=1 C=0 M=1 Y=1 K=1 C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=0 W=100 Replace any one color of CMYK with multiple inks Print an image in CMYK color mode with specified inks for any one color of CMYK. C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=0 W=0 Multiple inks can be selected. However, light ink cannot be specified. In this mode color replacement of Raster images is also possible. This is used when printing the entire image with only specific inks. For example, this is convenient when printing monotone images with white ink. Input color: Cyan C M Output: White W Y K 97

    98 Combination with Auto Special Color Composition Color Replacement and Auto Special Color Composition can be specified at the same time. Auto Special Color Composition: Special Color Print Area is Valid Pixel When specifying Special Color for Color Replacement, the density of Color Replacement has a priority. e.g.) Color Replacement : Spot color = Special Color 20% Auto Special Color Composition : Special color ink density = 50% } Print is performed with Spot color = Special Color 20%. Auto Special Color Composition: Special Color Print Area is Whole Image When specifying Special Color for Color Replacement, the density of Auto Special Color Composition is added to Special color ink density of Color Replacement. e.g.) Color Replacement : Spot color = Special Color 20% Auto Special Color Composition : Special color ink density = 50% } Print is performed with Spot color = Special Color 70%. Auto Special Color Composition: Special Color Ink Density is 0% Special color is not generated by Auto Special Color Composition.

    109 Color Replacement Replacing spot colors and CMYK colors This section explains the spot colors and CMYK colors replacement method. When replacing CMYK colors, if the same color is being used for a different vector object, that color will also be changed. Replacement of colors where Adobe Illustrator filter effects such as drop shadows, transparency, and gradations are applied may not be performed correctly. RasterLink data output from FineCut or SimpleStudio may have the following spot colors added. Do not specify color replacement for these spot colors. MPC_FRAME_DATA, Mimaki Register Mark, and Around Mimaki Register Mark Specify the original color for replacement There are two methods to specify this. When the original color for replacement is specified, the replacement information setting screen can be edited. To replace multiple colors, check Set multi color replacement. (1) Select from the Replacement information list Select the color name from the list for replacement. Spot colors and registered CMYK colors are displayed. (2) Select from the Preview screen Place the cursor over the Preview screen, and click the location for Color Replacement. Since CMYK colors are not initially displayed in the Replacement information list, select this method. When a original color is specified, until it is unselected, the color information specified by the cursor on the preview cannot be displayed on the input screen. Click 2 1 Unselect the original color for replacement There are two methods for unselecting the color. (1) When the Replacement information list is selected, press the Esc key. (2) Place the cursor over the preview, and right click. 109

    110 Create ink information after replacement There are two ways to create ink information after replacement: entering an ink density manually, and retrieving it from a color collection. Entering Ink Density Manually Select the original color to replacement. 1 In the Output information screen, enter the ink density for the color of the ink to use. Click Setup. 2. Setting 3. Click 1. Select 2 The Color Replacement information is set. The color reproducibility for DIC colors (output values) in a color collection varies, depending on the currently selected device profile as follows: For version 3.0 device profiles containing highly accurate color replacement information: Colors closer to DIC colors can be reproduced. For other device profiles: Accurate colors may not be reproduced. 110

    111 Color Replacement Retrieving from a color collection1 1 Select a color to be replaced. On the Color Collection screen, open a color collection folder for color replacement. 2.Open 1.Select 2 Select a color patch. Click Setup. The color replacement information is set. 2.Open 1.Open 111

    112 Obtain ink information from color collection2 If the original color to be replaced is a DIC spot color registered in a color collection, the appropriate output value can be automatically retrieved from the color collection without needing to set an individual output value. 1 Click All Selections. You can select an individual color to be replaced from the list. Click 2 Click Output Value Acquisiotion. If the original color to be replaced is a DIC color, and its replacement color is beyond the color reproducibility of the printer, the color difference between the original color and its replacement color is shown. -> This indicates that the DIC color cannot be reproduced. Click The color replacement information is set. 112

    113 Color Replacement Retrieving from a color collection3 Colors other than DIC colors in an image can also be retrieved from a color collection and registered into the current color replacement definition file. This eliminates the need for setting individual color replacement values by using the color replacement definition file if DIC colors in the image match spot colors registered in the file. 1 On the Color Collection screen, open a color collection folder for color replacement. Select a color patch. Press the Ctrl key + A key on your keyboard. (You can select more than one patch, pressing the Ctrl key.) Click Export. Click 2 Select Display unused color in the color replacement set. The output values for the spot colors not in the image are set. Select 113

    114 Following are cautions when using spot colors with changed density in an image. RasterLinkPro5 sets ink density with respect to a spot color density of 100%. The ink density is calculated automatically based on the spot color density. Example: If a special color called Spot (display color given by C=100, M=0, Y=0, K=0) is printed at 100% density in one area and at 50% in another in Illustrator, and the ink density for Spot is set to C=0, M=80, Y=20, K=0 in RasterLinkPro5, the ink density for Spot in the area printed at 100% becomes C=0, M=80, Y=20, K=0 and the ink density for Spot in the area printed at 50% becomes C=0, M=40, Y=10, K=0. The color for a spot color displayed in the Color Replacement information list may be different from the display color specified in Illustrator. This is because the input color of the spot color displayed in the Color Replacement information list displays the colors matched to the density of the spot color detected first on the image in RasterLinkPro5. Example: If a special color called Spot (display color given by C=100, M=0, Y=0, K=0) is printed at 100% in one area and at 50% in another in Illustrator, and RasterLinkPro5 detects first the area where Spot is printed at 50%, the display color for Spot in the Color Replacement information list is set to C=50, M=0, Y=0, K=0. Rolling the cursor over a spot color on the preview screen displays the display color that matches the spot color density under the cursor in Input. However, if the mouse is clicked, the information displayed in Input becomes the content of the Color Replacement information list independently of the density of the spot color at the clicked point. Delete ink information after replacement Select the replacement information to detect the ink information after replacement. Click Delete on the Output information screen. The Color Replacement information is deleted. 2. Click 1. Select 114

    115 Color Replacement Switch displays Replacement information list The Replacement information list can be changed as follows.

    117 Color Replacement Replacing gradations Restrictions on gradations for which Color Replacement is possible The following restrictions apply to gradations for which Color Replacement is possible. Only vector objects created with Illustrator Color Replacement cannot be performed for vector objects created with Illustrator that are treated as follows Objects with split, extention applied Rasterized objects Color Replacement cannot be performed for gradations created with Photoshop and for Rasterized gradations. The colors of gradations that can be specified are as follows. The combination of maximum density and minimum density of gradations are as follows. Maximum density (%) Minimum density (%) C M Y K C M Y K Maximum density Minimum density 117

    118 118 If a midpoint is introduced between the maximum density and minimum density of a gradation by Gradation slider and the color is changed, color replacement cannot be performed. Color Replacement of gradations that include a lot of clipping paths may not be performed correctly. Color Replacement of gradations that use Illustrator filter effects such as Drop Shadows and Transparency may not be performed correctly. Illustrations with the same colors as those included in the gradation are also replaced. Example: Maximum density C = 100, M = 1, Y = 1, K = 1 Minimum density C = 0, M = 1, Y = 1, K = 1 If a C = 50, M = 1, Y = 1, K = 1 illustration is included in the data, it will be color replaced. Even if the setting of replacing gradations seems can be performed on the Gradation screen, the replacement will not be performed depending on the data. Check if the replacement will be performed or not, by reduced print in advance without fail. When the Illustrator setting Compatible Gradient and Gradient Mesh Printing is checked, gradation replacement cannot be set.

    144 Editing Print Condition Set the print conditions. If multiple jobs are set to Group, all the jobs become same print condition. When you print using the printing condition set by the RasterLinkPro5 SG, be sure to set the Priority Order of the printer main body to HOST. If you set it to PANEL, the printing condition set by the RasterLinkPro5 SG is ignored, and printing will be performed using the printing condition set at the printer side. (For the details of setting method of Priority Order, refer to the operation manual of the printer.) Refining the device profile Displays the refined device profile.( P.147) 2. Device Profile list Indicates profiles for optimum printing. Click and select the profile to be used. Select the device profile depending on the ink set of the printer main body. For example, when you fill up six-color ink in the printer main body, even if you select the seven- or eight-color device profile at the RasterLinkPro5 SG side, you cannot print properly. 144

    145 Editing Print Condition The available resolution depends on the Device Profile that is preinstalled. In case the corresponded Device Profile is not exist, install the appropriate profile. (The corresponded profile may not be preinstalled.) Device profiles contain the recommended print condition settings (number of passes/number of overprints/print direction/whether fast printing). If conditions other than these are used, a suitable print quality cannot be obtained. Device profiles are created with the optimal conditions for each media, so use the device profile for the media you are using. If the media and device profile do not match, a suitable print quality may not be able to be obtained. Use the following procedure to set the recommended values of the device profile as the print conditions. When the profile version is V3: Select the profile to automatically set the recommended values. When the profile version is V2: Select the profile to set the initial values. These values are not the recommended values of the profile. For a profile with the recommended values included in the media name, follow the instructions below to set the recommended values as the print conditions. Example 1:If the media name is UV-PET v2(1l4pbh), the values in parentheses are the recommended values. 1L 4p B H Number of overprints 1L: 1 overprint layer 2L: 2 overprint layers Number of passes Print direction B:Bi-direction U:Uni-direction Fast print H: ON None:OFF * If a hyphen (-) is inserted between the number of overprint layers and number of passes, the values are basically the same as the above. Example 2:If the media name is PVC Gloss(1Layer), the value in parentheses indicates the number of overprint layers. 1Layer: 1 overprint layer 2Layer: 2 overprint layers In the case of a profile that does not include the recommended values in the media name, perform a test print with the initial values, and change the print condition settings if you determine the print quality to be poor. 3.

      Mimaki JV3 160S Boot Up Problem

      Hey all,

      First off, any information will be better than the none am currently stuck with.

      Had an issue last week for error code 07 (----*-) so I called my tech man and got some testing info.
      Swapped the two print head cables on the slider board for the indicated head... Power off, Unplugged, glove-wielding, and carefully matching connectors.
      Received error code 07 as expected but with (-----*) as it should. I then powered down the printer, unplugged said printer and left it that way while I ordered parts and waited for shipping. Turned it on shortly before receiving parts, head still unplugged from slider board, to check ink levels and everything was normal as could be.
      Later that afternoon after some install fun I returned to the print room, parts in hand.
      Turned the machine off (when I say turned it off I mean that I push green button on front, white button on back and then unplug the power cable) waited a few minutes while I got the parts out then I began unplugging the slider board that I was going to replace.
      I ordered two head to slider data cables and a new slider board for the head to slider replacement.
      I Removed all cables connected to the slider board as well as the 3 cables connected on the left of the board, as you would have to replace the board.
      Plugged the 2 new data cables for the head, into the head.
      Took the (OLD)slider board off, Replaced it with (NEW)slider board and proceeded to plug the top 5 ribbon cables back in.
      It its possible that I may have crimped these cables upon putting them back in for the space was tight and didn't have too many options... Later realized grid-pattern needle-nose pliers worked well to grab the cables from the sides to effectively insert them more accurately and gently. However, I digress.
      May have crimped main cables upon inserting them back into the board(NEW)/*\ put every other cable back into its respective slot.
      ***NOTE: To remove and install the new slider board I used a Ryobi cordless drill with a chuck setting of 1, for those of you that don't know, that is less than a usual hand tightening***
      Once everything was back in order I plugged the machine power cable back in, turned power on(white switch first then green button on) and I could hear the fans come up but not the usual capping station clicking, carriage movement, and display screen readout of "BOOT-then-V3.10" in fact nothing other then the fans even happened.
      To sum this up, I follow those same steps in reverse to put the (OLD)board back in and try it again seeing as it worked fine the morning that I began the swap.
      Still to the same tune as the (NEW)board... Fans and nothing more.
      Followed the same steps back to the new board... Nothing more than fans.
      Followed my usual safety steps, Unplugged all the cables, plugged the machine in, turned it on...white then NOT green... and I left it on probably an 2 hours ago... bear in mind the new slider board is in. The cables, all of them, are unplugged and I figured I would look into some issues or solutions someone else has had after spending half of the interim checking almost every cable on the machine and no signs of wear or damage. Checked every board except power board and they look fine(which anyone who knows about circuit boards knows that just because they look fine doesn't mean there is nothing wrong but a visual inspection is usually a good start).
      And that is the tale of how this Cali-Boy got stumped.

      Now that I have finished this essay, does anyone know how to get ahold of wiring diagrams of these machines or is that Mimaki technical classified stuff?

      Atop of all my spiel, where you see this /*\ in my writing, the machine, after the final steps I mentioned about surfing the web for solutions my printer gave an all inspiring beep. A beep that said hey dad im back from the dead. So if you have this problem, and im not out of the frying pan just yet, then maybe just try what I did. Ill let you all know how the replugging goes. Just remember to wear rubber gloves when messing with those boards and be gentle with your wires people those circuit safety precautions aren't for you they're for your wallet... Printer parts aren't cheap.
