How to Setup Default Job Property Settings Within SAi FlexiPRINT UV 22 Software (Part 2)

flexiprint default job property

Now that we have the right printers setup for both White and Varnish printing, lets look at setting up some defaults.

The great part of default settings is that every time you add a new project to your printer it will automatically add a great base set of settings to start from.

Hi there, guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at setting some default job properties for your printers, and this will be within flexi print and the production manager. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A. We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're back into the actual programme here. So now we've got the two printers on top here. Now let's look at some default settings. So what this is gonna do is every time you start your programme, it will use those settings so you don't have to set it up for every file you drag in. Now it's can save you a lot of time and, um, the also the default you said might change according to your actual workflow. But I'm just gonna quickly run through what we're gonna be using for our tutorial. So we're gonna first select the printer that does only the white, not the white and varnish. I'm gonna go right click. And then, uh oh, my apologies. Right Click of this one. So not the actual name on top, the bottom name and then we've got here. Default job properties. Zoom in. I don't know if you guys can see well, here. So, yeah, we've got default job properties, which we're gonna be selecting then that should load us a, um, pop up box of the default settings. Just give it a second. There we go. Now, there's a lot to set. But what we're gonna do is only set key ones, the other ones you can play with if you need to. But in general, you can just leave it, as is now right off the bat here. We've got these little icons. If you had to hover on them, they will show a little, um, help pop up on zoom again. So it will tell you what the panel is, so we can see you've got layout. You've got workflow and so forth. So if you're not sure if we talk about something, you can always go there. Let me just look, if that is, um, which panel is the right? So now all our first one, the layout, we're gonna go and just set our scale down. I'm gonna set mine to 30 centimetres. Otherwise, what happens is once you import your graphics is you're gonna get a shock because that thing is gonna be extremely big. So we're gonna leave that one at 30. You might have to jump, uh, set this according to um, what is required? Like I say, talk to support. Go to your printer, What is required and they should be able to help you with that. Then let's just jump through these ones and look what is important. So now next one over here, under our actual workflow, we're gonna go to the after output. This is so after it's done output, What is gonna happen to the file so normally it will delete it. But in our case, we wanna go hold because then if you want to reprint, it's easy. You don't have to do the whole process again. You can just say, OK, cool. Let's print again, and then, especially doing test prints. This is great. And you leave it on hold, then under the actual, uh, colour management, we're gonna be, um, adding another colour profile on this to make sure your colours are accurate to your printer. But for that we will do another video because we have to go download it. I'll show you where to download it and so forth. It's pretty straightforward. But, um, yeah, I don't think we're gonna fit that into this video as well. Let's just go through all the, uh, do it and we see what we've got here. And some of it we're gonna set some panels so it's irrelevant for what we're gonna be doing now. So the next one is the printer options over here. What we wanna do is we wanna set the type it is, so you can see we've got here for the white ink and varnish ink. So this is only gonna be relevant or the varnish is only gonna be relevant if you have a printer that can do varnish. But for now, we're just gonna set both these two solid under colour, and then we're gonna set this one as well to under colour. Wait, My apologies. I think it's actually we wanna be setting this to under solid every a R. So under solid and under solid, we're gonna be setting this. But once we start working with custom channels, we're gonna change this. But for default. I like to keep these on the under solid. You can play through these and see what's the different effects they've got. But for default, I would say Just leave it under solid. Let's go through some other settings. Won't be setting that, You know that. And then, um, got a nice little preview place where we'll be coming back to that. So now the last thing we wanna say is we wanna go here to our last panel. Transparency. And this is only relevant if you are printing PNG files with transparent backgrounds. Then what you wanna do is use Alpha channels data for white. So what this is gonna do is, um, uh, interpolate it so it does not use White as the Alpha Channel, but instead the actual Alpha Channel. Don't worry too much. We'll be covering this as well. I'll show you some samples. What's the difference? But this is also a good one to leave on, in my opinion, as default. But we're gonna leave it off for now so I can show you the difference in another video. Then what we're gonna do is say apply, OK, and then we wanna set up the next printer as well, so make sure you select it on top. You'll see it's blue and it's active, then same thing we're gonna right click the name at the bottom here, zoom right click and then we wanna go to default Job properties. I'm gonna just jump through this quickly. We're gonna make that 130. Then we're gonna set our output to hold. Then colour correction we will still be doing. Then I'm gonna set this one to solid under solid and under solid for both white and varnish, and we go right to the end. Yeah, OK, we not gonna set it now, but normally I would activate that one. So it is, um they use alpha channels for white. So OK, and there we go. We've got both our default printer set up. So, like I said now, once we drag a file in here, it's gonna use those settings and then, um, we can make adjustments off that, but that is a nice stock to have. But like I mentioned, yours might vary depending on your printing needs. But yeah, before we head over to some more advanced things. If we go here to softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A. You guys will notice We've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And you can also isolate your search here on the top, right?
