    Komori Lithrone 28 (1999) and CIP3

    lostmind, yes, you have to create a CIP3 / PPF file out of your CtP RIP, your workflow or imposition app (Preps). My Komori customers either have a network connection of the console PC system (Win), or the PQ4 data is transferred quite "nostalgically" using 3.5 inch floppy disks. ;-)

    Hi lostmind, for the CIP3/PPF import and conversion to the Komori PQ4 file format, you can use the Komori PCC Windows application.

    Heidelberg Presses & CIP3 Ink Data

    I am almost sure that PressPerCent can not generate WIF file format, but perhaps PressProfiler can.

    Heidelberg Presses & CIP3 Ink Data

    Hi pd, Sorry I dont know. The best is to ask Andrew Aldridge from Prepress UK PressProfiler CIP3 – Offset Printing Press CIP3 Ink Key Presetting and Statistics Solution Martin

    Heidelberg Presses & CIP3 Ink Data

    Hi pd, #2 and #3 are basically using the same engine from Excourse, but #3 has the more comfortable and flexible UI. There are many software RIPs for CtP in the market, which generate CIP3 and/or proprietary file formats too (Harlequin, StudioRIP etc.) Best regards Martin

    Stopped, UserName, "Filter" failed ––– After update to Sonoma on Mac

    Hi graphicsource, since macOS 13 (Ventura), Apple no longer supports PostScript (PPD) completely and in Sonoma, PS is vanished. I suspect that is where your problem lies.

    Newbie advice needed on Heidelberg Prosetter 74

    @tommylos Be carefull with buying a second hand Prinect / MetaDimension Shooter. The shooter must exactly fit to your Suprasetter. Heidelberg changed the Suprasetter technical specifications several times since the release of the machine over ten years ago.

    Looking for cip3 software

    Hi Jacek, in PressPerCent there are several setup parameters to adjust the ink zone information to your specific press. The basic settings of PPC are often "too weak" and only open the ink keys very insufficiently. In the attached screenshots you can see the menu windows for "Zones Curves", "Ink...

    Looking for cip3 software

    PPC and PressProfiler are both based on the Excourse PressPerCent. PressProfiler offers just a little more ease of use and runs on a Windows PC. In the meantime, both also get along well with PDF jobs with spot colors. The current PPC v3.64 has the option of Ghostscript integration for PDF...

    The different firmware of the two devices is the issue. The P9000 firmware can't work with the x-rite ILS20 of the SP9900 chassis. You have to replace the ILS20 with an ILS30 and then it will work.
