DXF and Gerber | ixPressia

Keywords: inkjet printers

ixPressia technology supports demanding materials printing with DXF and Gerber file format available as an additional option.

Optimised for Inkjet

The importer option takes into account different resolutions in the X & Y directions – a situation common in many inkjet printers. Other DXF and Gerber conversion tools don’t offer this functionality.

Extra control

Key aspects of the image can be manipulated while it is in vector format. These include all the linear transformations such as shift, rotation, stretch in X and Y and skew.

Special Customisation

If your application requires additional customisation (for instance controlling the order that deposition takes place in) this can be added as a custom feature to the ixPressia PrintEngine™. Please contact us to discuss.

Off-line processing

Combined with the ixPressia off-line tool it is possible to process images away from the printer.

PrintEngine™ Offline | ixPressia

It allows an image file to be read and then automatically does the full image processing and generates bitmap files for loading into the datapath electronics. During the early stages of a printer development engineers often need to process images and then load them manually into the print head electronics. Typically the input image needs to be dithered, colour corrected, colour separated and then split into swathes for each of the printheads.
