TOPIC: Trapping Signlab

Trapping Signlab 1 year 6 months ago #5953


Like to say hi to everyone on here, it's a great forum.
Got a question I've created a PDF on another system then I've outputted it through Signlab to a Gerber Edge. Unfortunately the result has split lines between two different colours. Is there any way I can trap one or both these colours so that they overlap. Apologies is this is a repeat question, but had a look and couldn't find anything similar.

Hi David,
I have a suggestion, if it works will depend on the distance of the gap between the two objects and maybe also on the package/version of Signlab that you have.

If you click on the weld tools (two red circles icon).
When you press this, how many options do you have? If you have 5, then the 5th one (Inlay Weld) might do what you need.

Select both objects, then select the Inlay Weld tool. Set a reasonable Bleed value, and possibly change to "Bleed Big gaps". Click OK.
If it is going to work the two will now overlap and the Top object will have Overprint attributes, meaning that the whole of both colours will be printed and the bottom shape will not be "Knocked out".

If this does not work, attach the PDF and I might have other ideas.
