HP Designjet 90 with RIP


Anybody have the HP Designjet 90 with software postscript (actually a RIP)?

It's an 18" wide color inkjet, so cut sheets would be just 18"x24" (Arch C). At a cost of $1k (RIP is another $400), I wonder how good it is for CAD drawings that have imported scan images. Scan images would be greyscale.

We do not have the 90, but we do have the DesignJet 30 & 500. We use RIP software with both (PosterJet), but not with CAD drawings. RIP software is a waste with CAD files (even with images imported). We do a ton of "hybrid" drawings (CAD+raster images) I will do test plots directly from VectorWorks. When we do presentation plots we generate a tif or jpeg, then print that file using PosterJet. The quality is SUPERB. Also with PosterJet the plot will start in 6-7 seconds (no 15-20 min. spooling). Vector images (of any kind really do not need a RIP). My only other comment would be; HP Postscript is a mediocre RIP, you can do far better with third party RIP's.
