Creating a Printer

In the RIP component of PrintFactory, you can set up your printers and cutting devices. Every output device is represented by a separate window displayed on the main page. For performance reasons, we recommend no more than three printers per RIP instance.
How to set up a new printer
  1. Start PrintFactory RIP.
  2. On the File menu, point to Printer and select New.
    The Properties dialog box is displayed.
  3. Enter a Name for the printer.
    (The name helps you to easily identify the printer later on, especially if you have two or more printers of the same model.)
  4. Select the Printer Manufacturer and Model from the drop-down list.
  5. Define the Connection settings:
    • For USB connections, select a printer Port.
    • For TCP/IP connections, enter the IP address of the printer.
    • Instead of driving the printer directly from the RIP, you can alternatively choose a ROOM Queue folder (Rip Once Output More), where the ripped files will be placed, and then define the number of copies, nesting, positioning and so on in PrintFactory PrintStation.
  6. Click OK to confirm your choice.
    The printer is displayed in the main view.
