Title: CWS vs. Freeform
Post by: DigiCorn on September 09, 2019, 12:35:28 PM
Long story short, we bought another print shop a few weeks or a month or so back and one of the employees hasn't adjusted well. Thursday night he quit at midnight and stole a bunch of shit, including the delivery van. Friday we went over and basically took the van back and recovered what we could. I have to go work in that shop this week to clean up the mess, but they have Freeform which I've never used before. How is it different from CWS?

FreeForm is a stand-alone software for VDP made by EFI. Command Workstation has this under the VDP tab within the job properties without the fancy interface. You define the static background as a 'master', then send the variable files to marry with the master. This allows it to process much faster at the RIP.

I see that it is running on a Solaris RIP now

Freeform has a free new program called Freeform Create. You can make a master and place the variables all at once. It's almost like a layout program. Might want to check it out.
