A Digital Printing Network
For the newbies...I ran out of one color ink in my SP300V last friday, and had to cancel a print job with 2" left to go. Got new cartridge in late monday, popped it in-and ran off a test print. No problems-at all! So if anyone is worried about nozzles drying up with an empty cartridge-mine went 3 days and had no problems. Just thought I'd pass this along-I had never run out in 6 years! My version of Versaworks doesn't give me advance notice of ink levels and this was the first time I didn't have a backup. Do now...ordered 2 of everything.
Roland, there 2 ways that VW lets you know your ink levels. 1 - upper left hand corner of VW look at the printer ID yours will be SP 300V look next to the green square if a yellow triangle is there you are low on ink in one of the cartridges. 2 - select printer in the info bar at the top, then look at printer status, this shows approximate ink levels if the machine is in the ready to print status.
Wow, not to sound dumb-but I never saw that triangle before! And it says my black is just about ready to change-now I have 2 cartridges in backstock so I won't get stuck. I'll have to blame it on Scott-he installed it and taught me how to run it in a one day marathon session. If he did tell me-I forgot all about it. 6 years and I never knew that! Thanks!
And I also learned from myversacamm a month or two ago how to 'nest' or combine different jobs to print all together and save material. Played with it a bit and it's neat!
Now, what can I learn next? Have to 'know it all' so I can train the people that might be buying my shop!
