For some...

    does esko cdi have 5080 dpi option ?

    Newer Esko CDIs can be equipped to run up to 5080, but 4000dpi is the standard because more than 4000dpi doesn't yield better results in most cases. For some special cases (typically security printing) You can special order a CDI up to 10,000 dpi.

    Adding Bleed and Viewing the bleed afterwards

    You could always add bleed in AE via the prepare for gang run tickets. This adds bleed to your PDFs and therefore it happens BEFORE the RIP and can be viewed long before the print stage.

    What's The Difference Between Automation Engine & Switch?

    As already mentioned, Switch is an Enfocus product and Esko owns Enfocus. In fact, much of the preflight capability inside of Automation Engine is the Enfocus Pitstop Engine. Esko adds to that with other workflow controls and non Enfocus action lists. Both systems are capable of handling all of...

    Esko Visualizer

    Do you have the Esko standalone app called "Studio Toolkit"? If so, you can edit the orientation of the collada file in it. Otherwise, if you have Studio Toolkit for Boxes and the CAD file or drawing, you can refold the box and select a different panel as the base.

    Nexus stitcher

    Agreed, you can't feed a total rip anything but a PDF. You could create a WF that took your PDFs and turned them into links and pages but that'd flatten your PDFs (might as well just work in Quark). Generally, the Nexus support guys know what they are talking about and if they couldn't figure...
