To make both matte and gloss Piezography prints with an Epson K3 8-color printer, install ink shades as per the chart below.
“P2” curves MUST be used with this ink setup (K7 curves will not work). “P2” curves are available for download below.
Piezography 2 is designed for use with the K3 8-ink Epson printer models, such as the R2400, R2880, 4800, 4800, 7800/9800 and 7880/9880.
*If using a R3000, 3800/3880, 7890/9890 or 7900/9900 printer that has two black channels, P2 isn’t necessary, because matte and gloss printing is already possible with K7.
Note: Piezography 2 is NOT available for non-K3 models, including the 1400/1430, 2200, R1800/R800, R1900, R2000, or 7600/9600. The 4000 can be set up to print dual matte/gloss, but uses different curves and ink shade placement than K3 printer models (contact Inkjetmall for assistance setting up your 4000 for dual matte/gloss printing).

To install new curves for use with QTR, you will need to drag and drop the curves (NOT the FOLDER containing the curves, but the individual curves themselves) into the following folder location:
(Windows) C:\ProgramFiles\QuadToneRIP\QuadTone(Your Printer Model)-K7
(Mac) /Applications/Piezography/Curves/(Your Printer Model)-P2
NOTE: With Mac users, you must uninstall your Quad printer model then reinstall it using the install.command located in the same folder you placed the new curve in. You will also need to restart your printing application if it was open when installing new profiles. This will show the new curve in QuadTone RIP. You will not lose any of your previous curves when you uninstall the printer.
