HP can upgrade the printer with a hard disk and PostScript by ordering an upgrade kit. Since nesting may automatically rotate pages, the Rotate setting in the Page Format menu is ignored while nesting is on. PostScript files will print in the orientation in which they were sent to the printer. What are different Nest Settings? Optimal: The printer will search all through the queue for suitable pages. It will nest the pages according to an algorithm that, for most combinations of page sizes, saves the most paper.
The resulting nesting pattern may still vary, depending on the size of the first page. If Optimal is selected when printing a PostScript file, Nesting will function as if In order is selected. In order: Choose this if the speed with which you receive your prints is most important. The printer will try to nest pages in their queue sequence.
If it comes across an incompatible page, it will stop searching and print any nest it has already created. What are the conditions that effect nesting? The printer is loaded with roll paper rather than sheet paper. In order to be in the same nest, the individual pages must all be color or must all be grayscale.
Turning queuing off does not turn nesting off for pages already in the queue. The printer prints all the pages in the queue before accepting any more files. As soon as you turn queuing off, the nesting setting also changes to off. When queuing is turned on again, the printer restores nesting to its previous setting. Waiting period is the nest wait time, it waits after a file has been received to check whether a subsequent page will nest with it or with pages already in the queue.
The factory default nest wait time is two minutes. This means that the printer waits for up to two minutes after the last file is received before printing the final nest. This waiting time can be changed using the front-panel menu. The available range is 1 to 99 minutes. While the printer is waiting for nesting to time out, it displays the remaining time in the front-panel display. You can cancel the nest wait by pressing the Form Feed and Cut key.
To get the most from your paper it is possible to change the spacing between the images on paper, in order to get more images onto the paper. There are two settings for nest spacing:. Automatic: The automatic setting is when the printer uses margins that it has already set. When using the automatic setting you are guaranteed to keep the page size as defined by your driver and application. Manual: Choose the manual setting when it is more important to be able to print more images on your paper than to keep the page size consistent.
The setting allows you to override the printer's margins and put in a nest space that you want. Also, do you have a recommended process for the nest i.
