Inèdit Software extends support to X-Rite i1Pro 3 and i1Pro 3 Plus Colour Measurement Devices. 

Inèdit Software extends support to X-Rite i1Pro 3 and i1Pro 3 Plus Colour Measurement Devices. 

Inèdit Software collaborates with X-Rite on the integration of i1Pro 3 with neoStampa and neoMatch software. 

Inèdit Software, a leading company in software development for workflow and color management in digital printing, now supports X-Rite’s i1Pro 3 Family, one of the best spectrophotometers on the market for digital printing.  In an effort to offer customers the best results, the i1Pro 3 and Inèdit software allow users to create digital print profiles on practically any surface such as textiles, ceramics, or wood. In addition, having a proven tool with years of experience enables users to be more accurate in matching colors and delivering the best color results.

The Rip Software developed by Inèdit, neoStampa, is positioned as a leader in digital textile printing thanks to its accurate color management and excellent results from a unique solution based on RGB colors. Likewise, Rip is complemented by neoMatch, the software specialized in creating color libraries. Both solutions, together with the company’s other programs, allow the user to have a specialized digital printing workflow focused on the best color management and color matching in the market.

“Working with i1Pro 3 provides users with the security of having accurate results. The tandem between neoStampa and i1Pro is a guarantee of success in achieving color matching and the best possible accuracy,” says Jose Antonio Caballero, Founder and Commercial Director of Inèdit Software.

The i1Pro 3 Family is more accurate, reliable, and twice as fast as its predecessor. It can simultaneously measure M0, M1, and M2 in a single pass while accounting for optical brighteners. Included in the family is the new i1Pro 3 Plus, which features a larger aperture of 8mm to support new materials and substrates used in digital printing applications. It also supports transmission scanning for backlit film and materials used in signage.

“X-Rite is excited to work with Inèdit Software to help customers deliver consistent color for digital textile printing,” said Ray Cheydleur, Printing and Imaging Product Portfolio Manager, X-Rite. “When paired with RIP software, the i1Pro 3 allows textile printers to easily define printing system settings, create ICC profiles, linearize, and more.”

neoStampa integrates the i1Pro 3 Family from version 9.0.6 of neoStampa, which was released at the end of March this year and can be downloaded free of charge from the Inèdit Software website.

i1Pro 3 can be purchased at the X-Rite’s website: https://www.xrite.com/page/i1-pro-3-family

And if we continue with Inés Aguilar, we find this course, more focused on the creation of fashion garments and inspiration. In this one, the designer will transmit to us more than two decades of experience in the sector, from the complete process of creation of fashionable clothes.

 

With this workshop, take a step further with your illustrations and patterns. Learn to draw different patterns by hand, based on characters living together in colorful spaces. Be inspired by the ideas and techniques in this course to add a different twist to your next collection.

 

Another of the courses that will help you to complement your designs.
