OK, some printers centre better than others, QImage or a RIP may solve problems where they exist. I have another hassle. Today , on my Epson 9800 I watched a 1m high sheet of paper move 1.5 mm to the left and then the right of the vertical guide as the print went through. This was after the setup refusing an adjustment of 0.2 mm for a job requiring high precision (it accepted 0.4mm)
I'm considering a 11880, but there is no mention in the literature/leaks etc. of any improvements in tracking or precision in positioning.
All revues on new products tend to be less than critical of mechanical performance. Perhaps this is why we have put up with machines with precision far short of industry standards.
I'm sure it's wonderful to be able to print Barbie Pink, but obtaining positioning precision easy with a 200 year old etching press seems out of gamut.
Am I operating on another planet or do you all accept this?
Sorry if I come across a bit agro , but I worked a 20 hour day yesterday trying to sort this one out, and I'm up to 18 today.
PS. I think I've figured out way to modify the machine with bits of cardboard and sticky tape, Obviously beyond the geniuses at Epson.,
PPS. Why is it that these forums never have responses to problems from Epson, HP or Canon?
It's good enough for Harman, Pixel Genius, Adobe and others (sincere thanks), but equipment manufacturers seem to distance themselves from any criticism of their products.
