    Anyone using Euclidean dot and why? Sheetfed Offset

    You find this to be significantly different than handling a round dot?

    Anyone using Euclidean dot and why? Sheetfed Offset

    Lol. I guess so. I can't imagine there's much of that left. I still can't see how that would be advantageous. Maybe to keep the shadows slightly more open. I can't imagine it would be that significant.

    Anyone using Euclidean dot and why? Sheetfed Offset

    Gordo, Can you think of a scenario when a euclidean dot would be desired?

    Agfa SolidTune Optimizes Ink Usage for Packaging Printing

    Looks like it simply applies a reverse FM dot to solids.

    Thin lines appearing on plates

    As suspected, the Fuji tech said it's not the plates...good for me...bad for the pressroom.

    Thin lines appearing on plates

    I don't understand. This was a practice your plant has always done and it just became an issue now? I'm very curious to see if this does truly solve your issue. Please post back after some time. I have a Fuji tech rep coming to our plant today for our line issue.

    Anyone using Euclidean dot and why? Sheetfed Offset

    Same here...lol My shop was a former Heidelberg shop so I assume the euclidean thing was a left over from those days. Same as distorting plates for paper stretch compensation. I had never seen that for offset before coming here. Adds rip time.

    Anyone using Euclidean dot and why? Sheetfed Offset

    I found switching from euclidean to round was seamless. No noticeable difference in repeat work unless you view with a loupe, lol.

    Thin lines appearing on plates

    We are suddenly experiencing the same thing with Fuji LH-PL plates. Oddly for us, it is occurring at more random position on the sheet but only on the operator side, and only happening on one press. Also initially it was isolated to one unit, but no longer. They have carefully looked the press...

    Anyone using Euclidean dot and why? Sheetfed Offset

    Thanks. Odd that they claim a smoother vignette with euclidean? I can't see that. There's an optical mid bump associated with euclidean. Seems some of that info is outdated (it is 20 years old) and maybe a sales kit for selling their screening technology.

    Anyone using Euclidean dot and why? Sheetfed Offset

    Just curious why anyone would prefer this over a standard round dot? Thanks!

    Distorting offset plates for growth compensation?

    That's a neat concept, but I'd imagine it would need to be calculated for repeat running conditions.

    Distorting offset plates for growth compensation?

    It was just a blanket practice to run plates scaled 99.9% gripper to tail. I don't have the history for the reasoning, I've just never seen this before. It's not a problem, just unusual to me with CTP and aluminum plates. There's some sheet growth on press. Probably about 1/32" over the length...

    Distorting offset plates for growth compensation?

    Any insight would be very helpful and appreciated.

    Distorting offset plates for growth compensation?

    Does anyone distort offset plates for gripper to tail growth compensation? First time I'm seeing it after all these years and found it odd for sheetfed offest.

    Illustrator 2022 zoom issues

    Wow...I thought this would get an immediate response. Happens on every machine. I assume people would be complaining.

    Illustrator 2022 zoom issues

    What the heck did they do? At higher zooms the display becomes unusable...goes blank and rebuilds as blocks as the cursor moves. Is anyone else experiencing this? Running i9 iMacs w Monterey. Ridiculous. I've tried the Illustrator display preferences to no avail.
