New User - canon ix6820 - gradients are not halftoning

Post by Prototype 8 » Wed Sep 18, 2019 10:01 pm

I just installed the app. I'm printing from Inkscape version 0.92

I created a simple rectangle with gradient from black to white across about 5 inches.

Sent the print to the PrintFab printer configured per the instructions. Not seeing halftones at all. just a perfectly smooth transition.

I'm a screen printer and I need to do halftones. I thought this was going to fix my long standing issue. I have never been able to get ghostscript to work to convert gradients to halftones. Please help!

Hello,

sorry for the delay :oops: the forum isn't dead but sometimes a bit slow.

Could you please write how you solved the problem, e.g. which printer driver setting was wrong?

Hello,

there is a tutorial in the forum about printing films with halftones with the Canon iX6820 printer:

https://www.turboprint.info/support/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=7659

You can find the complete description of the screen printing options in the PrintFab PDF manual - "Special settings for screen printing (PrintFab Pro XL only)", Windows: page 53 or PrintFab/Mac on page 46.

I hope this helps and please let me know if questions remain.
