New features available for all users
Have several projects with different cut contours? Group them into multi-page PDF files and submit them to CalderaRIP. Handling fewer files guarantees a more efficient workflow.
When preparing your jobs, CalderaRIP builds the rows by grouping the shapes by images. This helps the head of your cutting device to follow an optimized cut path without unnecessary back and forth.
Benefit from the newly added section to create, edit and select materials, and to associate methods to the materials. This new interface will ease and speed up the process in order to achieve higher cutting precision for your large format cutting devices.
Rotate your jobs by 180 degrees in VisualCut or GrandCut to streamline 2-step workflows such as sublimation and lamination— and have ready-to-cut jobs right after printing.
Accelerate the ripping process of repeated patterns by choosing between the RIP’s Step&Repeat optimization, or the new Printer S&R option.
*Currently available for Reggiani Renoir, EFI COLORS-340 & POWER-340, Kornit Allegro, and all MS printers. See the updated list of printers supporting the “Use Printer S&R” option on www.helpdesk.caldera.com.
Instead of re-cutting the same job multiple times, define a number of Passes in VisualCut to save time, and achieve higher cutting precision on thicker materials.
Users with an active subscription to our CalderaCare maintenance contract benefit from additional, exclusive features in CalderaRIP.
SmartImport automatically extracts metadata from the filename to automate job submission.

Users can choose the formula to measure the distance between colors in the EasyMedia module. This new color management option helps to achieve more accurate colors for all types of substrates.
In EasyMedia, you can enable the Auto-smoothing option to improve the linearization curve and eliminate color measurement inaccuracies.
This color management feature comes handy when you’re working on a printer with a large variability, with difficult media such as textile or corrugated— or if the spectrophotometer has not been handled properly.
