"If you talking dual, great - it handles gradients better. Do some test with Roland Color Library. RGB, and Pantone  Gradients have always been an issue with Roland and Dual makes a good attempt of smoothing them out."

Posted on April 29, 2015 at 3:35pm 1 Comment

  Recently, Inobu and I had a very interesting conversation offline about an online topic of connectivity. He was contradicting my many years of connecting Versaworks to VersaCAMMS.

Thank you! 

Honestly, I'm not sure if they checked the tension or not. The cuts are off in the scan and feed direction. I'll upload a picture of a bad print tomorrow.

I understand about the motor being bad, I have ordered new...  What about the carriage feeling sluggish and sticking.  It's only intermittent.  ??  Not to sure.  Thank God I ordered the motor too, just in case.  :)

BTW...  Instant Motor Error on Boot up as well.
