Kornit QUICKP RIP integration

Kornit QUICKP RIP integration

To integrate OMS and QuickP in to one singular workflow we must use the RIP integration 'Kornit QuickP Auto Crop'. 

This RIP integration is simple to set up and does two important things:

1. The Offset X and Y are dynamically calculated based on the position of the art work against the print area on the products aspect, once the items have been batched and the picking labels are downloaded. 
2. The file name convention is used when downloading the artwork from the display scan point.


The set up for this function is fairly simple, however there are three point that must be set up for it to work:

1. Product setup
2. RIP integration
3. Batch templates 

Product setup

The product must be setup as standard however the print areas size must be the same as the relevant pallet on the Kornit  machine.

The product will also need to have the Kornit attributes added to them as attributes sets, as these are used to create the file name.

In the example below I have separated the attribute sets in to different colours , however this will differ for yourself, as standard you will probably have 3 different colour setups (white,light and dark ) and multiple sizes tables. An attribute set will need to be set up for each combination.

To create an attribute set in CPP in the top right corner go to Settings> Attribute Sets




Click on the button'+ New set' and give the set a name and select your company from the Owner drop-down box and save.

An Attributes button will appear on the left, click on it and add the attributes.

If the product has one print area you will need to just set up a basic attribute set where the attribute name and the value are added to the relevant fields:
attribute.name
attribute.value
Kornit Setup
Teeblack
Kornit Table
Standard Platten

The Kornit Offsets for X and Y are do not need to be manually set on the attribute sets, as these are created dynamically by the system based on the image position against the print area on the product.

If you have previously set up the Kornit Offsets for X and Y these will be ignored and the dynamically created one's will be used instead.





OPTIONAL: ADVANCED PRINT AREA SETTINGS
This section only applies to advanced uses of the Kornit workflow

It is possible if required to allow you to have different Kornit attributes on your blank and virtual products per Print Area. For example the print are on the front back back of a t-shirt will have different print set up that the sleeves.

The attributes set can be set up in the same way except there must be a attribute set for each print area for the 'Kornit Table'.

attribute.name
attribute.value
Kornit Setup
TeeBlack
Kornit Table Front
Standard Platten
Kornit Table Back
Standard Platten
Kornit Table Left Sleeve
Sleeve Platten
Kornit Table Right Sleeve
Sleeve Platten


RIP Integration

The RIP integration 'Kornit QuickP Auto Crop'.  dynamically adds the Kornit X and Y offsets and enables you to download the files in the correct naming convention to be ingested by QuickP.

To set this up a Kornit production centre company will need to be created and the RIP integration 'Kornit QuickP Auto Crop' will need to be enabled on it.

The Production integration 'Kornit QuickP' is not required and if you are switching from this to the RIP Integration we recommend you turn it off.




Batch Templates

Consolidation batch's need to be created for each product type with all of the reliant SKU's  and the Kornit production centre company added to it.
The example below show a batch template for black t-shirts
