I am trying to understand how to use the new calibration sets that i just made. It appears according to the messagei get after caibrating to a specific paper, the cal set i just made will be allpied to the output profile. So it seems that any custom cal set i make will become the default set for the output profile(i only have one profile)? What is the purpose of having different cal sets for the different types paper i have loaded? i hope that i am missing how to apply these calibrations sets to a paper type, drawer or something.

Does anyone know how the take full advantage of creating calibration sets on the ImagePass-A1?

thanks,

Mat H

Now I feel a little bit silly that I didn't figure this out quicker, but in hopes that this will help a fellow struggler here is what I found.

Every time you create a new calibration set for a new paper stock a separate unique output profile is generated. You have to select that output profile in the drivers color settings tab in order to take advantage of the paper specific cal set you created.

hope that helps someone.

What version of Fiery/CWS are you using? Our tech here doesn't remember, since the machine is so old, but how do we calibrate and assign profiles for multiple paper types on a Xerox DC 2060 running CWS 4.1 on a Fiery 2? I've calibrated as you described, but I am unfamiliar with the unique output profile you are describing, i.e. I don't know where to find it or what the file name is.

I was told by our Xerox tech, that if we do upgrade past the CWS version we are on (as stated, it's 4.1) Xerox will not support us, and we will void any agreement we have with them, so upgrading to 5.3 is not the answer.

Also, I totally understand how to calibrate the machine. The question is, when running multiple types of paper, how (if possible) do you calibrate and store profiles for multiple types of paper. We regularly run 9 different types of paper on an almost daily basis, and as I understand it now, we are only creating a calibration set for one type. In the quick printing business it is not feasible to calibrate for each sheet just before you run the job, so we need to calibrate and store. I thought this was done using the Output-1, etc. profiles, but I'd like to see some documentation on the proper way.

Might be worth creating a new thread with this.....
