Software Simulation Assessments
This document is a companion guide, intended to be used in conjunction with the Fiery proServer and Fiery XF 7 Software Simulation Evaluation Modules that are part of the Fiery proServer and Fiery XF 7 Professional Certification program. This guide contains instructions for each of the individual 16 software modules. Completing these modules will not only complete the certification process but will also provide you with hands-on experience in configuring and using the Fiery proServer and Fiery XF 7 system interface and help build your confidence level. It is recommended that you complete each module in the order that they are presented.
In this module, either your proServer has gone through the initial startup procedure or the stand-alone version of the Fiery XF 7 server has been installed. To complete this module:
With your system licensed, you are now ready to start your Fiery server and add it, along with your first printer, to Fiery Command WorkStation. Command WorkStation is launched but notice that the Fiery Server Control icon indicates that the server is not running. Before you can add the server to Command WorkStation the server must be running.
Before you can successfully complete the setup of your first printer and process and print jobs, you must configure the media settings. To do this you must have at least one media set consisting of a calibration file and an ICC media profile installed on your system for each printer. In this module you will download these media sets.
With your printer added to the selected server in Fiery Command WorkStation and with media sets made available, you are ready to configure your default media. Media and workflow configuration is done within Server Manager which has already been launched.
With your default media configured, it is now time to define the settings for your default workflow.
Although you have configured a default media, it is not uncommon that you will want additional media to be available on your system. In this module you will add an additional media entry.
In addition to having multiple media available in your system, it is also quite useful to have additional workflow options available for selection by you and your staff. In this module you will add an additional workflow entry.
With your printer configured with media and workflow options, it is time to explore the different methods that you can use to import jobs into your system in order to print them.
In this module you will process and print the unprinted jobs that were imported in the last module.
In this module you will explore the various methods used to create a nesting job.
In this module you will explore the process used to create a tiling job
In this module you will explore the procedures used to create a step-and-repeat job including a seamless step-and-repeat job. You will begin by cleaning up the job list in Command WorkStation.
In this module you will explore the process used to set grommet marks on a job.
In this module you will create a new user who will have limited rights and access to your system.
In this lesson you will explore the creation of presets in both Server Manager and in Job Editor.
It this module you will explore the process used to create and save an environment and also to import an environment into an existing system.
