Wasatch SoftRIP Software TX Wide Format Edition


Developed exclusively for the needs of textile printers, SoftRIP TX is equipped with the tools you need to make your transition to digital printing seamless. With all the functionality of the original SoftRIP print management package, plus specialty features for textile printing, SoftRIP TX provides performance you won't find in any other RIP.

Efficient Repeats
Creating repeats in your design applications creates huge files and painful processing times. Wasatch SoftRIP TX uses special halftoning and re-sampling algorithms to ensure seamless repeats. And, since you only need to save and RIP a very small file, you save memory on your hard drive. You can even customize your repeats with advanced drop and slide controls.

Color Atlas Generator
The Color Atlas Generator makes it easy to match colors accurately no matter how complicated your post processing. Simply specify and print a range of color swatches on your target fabric and perform your finishing steps. To reproduce exact colors, pick your desired swatch and enter its RGB value into SoftRIP or your graphics application.

Quick Colorways
Developed for the multiple colorways and indexed TIFF files typical of fabric designs, SoftRIP TX allows you to create, view, edit, and manage multiple colorways on screen. With SoftRIP's easy, intuitive interface, you can easily store unlimited colorways for future use.

Color Database and Swatchbook
The Color Database feature enables you to maintain your own Color Kitchen of named entries. Colors can be routed through ICC management or directly to print heads, depending on your workflow needs.

Digital Engraving Data Support
Accept grayscale LAB TIFF files, then assign and edit color palettes prior to composite color output. Colorways can be assigned using LAB values and maintained in SoftRIP TX's color database.

Based on the Power of SoftRIP
With SoftRIP TX, the underlying structure is still SoftRIP, the leading digital graphic arts RIP. With simple setup, intuitive workflow, and powerful printing controls, SoftRIP saves you time and money while producing excellent quality color. Whatever your printing goals, SoftRIP has a solution for you.
