    Default KM IC-308 / SD-513: Combined crease and spline?

    Hi!

    I've heard that EFI released a patch for the IC-308 / IC-415 series in order to enable creasing while using spline forming in conjunction with the SD-513 finisher.

    Is this already available "for the masses" or is it still in beta stage?

    My KM tech just gave me the relevant patches FIT101723069 and FIT101723080 and also updated the printer/finisher firmware to the latest versions.

    Unfortunately, Freecrease is still not selectable in conjunction with spline forming...
    KM is still investigating this issue but I don't expect a solution within the next months as I'm the only customer in my region with an SD-513.

    Does anyone know if the Fiery somehow needs to be "shaken" to recognize the new device capabilities?

    UPDATE: After digging through the directories of my IC-308, it looks to me like the patch only changed the PPDs for the C1070/1080 series of printers but not for the C71hc (which I use). Could it be that EFI simply forgot that model? :-(

    UPDATE 2:
    I finally got it working! It seems that there are two issues with the above patches: First of all, only the PPDs for C1070/1080 are updated, not the ones for the C71hc and second, it seems to me that some languages are not updated. For me there was a mismatch between "German" and "Germany". Manually adding/exchanging the required PPDs did the trick and now everything's working fine.
