I am in the process of setting up a 3880 printer with a computer using El Capitan. Following the instructions in the Piezography manual, I have installed Print Tool, the Epson driver, and QuadTone RIP. I then downloaded the updated K7 curves for the 3880, deleted all the files in the QuadTone RIP/Profiles folder except for the install command files, added the updated K7 curves, and double clicked the Install3880-K7.command file. I then restarted my computer.
I opened Print Tool, loaded an image, and now have three questions:
There are two printers that show up: “EPSON Epson Stylus Pro 3880” and “Quad3880-K7”. Why? What is the difference?
Because the manual said to choose the quad printer, I chose the “Quad3880-K7” printer, and chose the appropriate settings, as indicated in the manual. After clicking Print/Layout/QuadTone RIP/QuadTone RIP 16-bit, I now click on Curve 1. But instead of showing any of the updated K7 curves, the only curves that show up are the old ones that I deleted (ex. K7-2880-HahnBamboo). Why? How can I solve this problem so that the updated curves show up at that point?
Do I need to go into the Applications/Piezography/Curves/3800-3880-K7 folders and likewise delete the old “K7-2880-etc.” files and add the updated K7 curves to it, then run the Install3880-K7.command file?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
