RIP integration | Kornit QUICKP


To integrate your Production Centre company and QuickP in to one singular workflow you must use the RIP integration 'Kornit QuickP'. 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.
NOTE - if you are using print sizes on products to reduce the size of the print with garment sized by a fixed multiplier you can enable "Calculate Offsets Relative to Standard Print Size" on each job template required under the "Kornit QuickP" tab. This will modify the X offset in the download filename to compensate for reductions made to the output. The Y offset always remains the same.

The set up for this function is fairly simple, however there are three point that must be set up for this to work:
  1. Product setup
  2. RIP integration
  3. Job templates 
Below each section mentioned has been broken down for you. 

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 we 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 Platform head to settings in the bottom left corner and go to Settings> Attribute Sets

To create a new Attribute set fist click on the '+ Add Set' button.

Once clicked you need to give the set a name and select your company from the Owner drop-down box and save as shown below. 

Once the Details have been set an Attributes menu will appear underneath, 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 in the table below.

Standard Platten
The Kornit Offsets for X and Y 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' as shown below.

RIP Integration

This RIP integration  dynamically adds the 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 your production centre company needs to be enabled. This has been shown below with this example Production Centre company. 

Please note that the Production integration 'Kornit QuickP' is not required and if you are switching from this to the RIP Integration we recommend you disabled this.
Within the Integration setup window there are 2 optional features that can be enabled which are detailed below. 
  1. Enable Auto Crop - Enabling this option will ensure files will be auto cropped without the need to manually do so. 
  2. Enable Tif Auto Crop - With this option enabled the integration will auto crop Tiff format files which are supported. 

Job Templates

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