Stuck profiling our VSi printer

Post by juanmata » Wed Nov 08, 2017 6:42 pm

Hi guys

I've been trying to profile my Versacamm printer for some time, I suppose it doesn't help when so many people give you different advice or using different software/tools.

Just when I think I've managed it, it doesn't workout as expected, puddling, colour not coming out right.

First off, let's say I've created a media profile in Versaworks Dual, I then go through the process of printing and reading charts, setting ink limits etc and finally setting total ink limit. You then go to i1Profiler and generate a load of charts, do you set the ink limit to match the limit in versaworks or do you leave it at 400%?

Once you've printed, read the charts and generated a profile, you install it into your media profile within media explorer, so far this seems straightforward apart from the ink limit within i1Profiler.

Now first off you want to test the print to make sure it's printing correctly, so under the quality tab / colour management, do you leave the preset to density control only? Should you tick 'use Embedded ICC Profile'?

Thanks

Thanks mrtn

Had the first one but not the second.

I seem to have managed to profile my printer correctly, upon testing my own prints it seems fine but when printing the test print page I'm getting pooling but I've left it on density controlled.

I'll take a read of the second post and see how I go.
