CLP-365 toner density control [solved]
Posted by: ncrmnt ()

Just wondering, is there any possibility to get at least some control over how much toner is applied when printing?


What for?
I'm using the CLP-365 for toner transfer. Since samsung's toner is somewhat a good dielectric, and grips onto the copper hard. I want to use it to create solder masks and silkscreens for my DIY PCBs. However unlike ML-2167 I used before, this one is very greedy, and the results are lower quality.
Obligatory examples for comparison:
Created with ML-2167, one layer of toner, 600x600dpi: http://ncrmnt.org/wp/2014/01/18/toner-trasfer-double-the-sides-double-the-fun/
Created with CLP-2167,
one layer of toner 1200x600dpi (Blue): http://pics.ncrmnt.org/index.php?album=junk/colorsilk
Green: 2 layers, printed twice on the same sheet of paper.

I looked for a density setting, there is none.

But from the Changelog:
2014-01-26      Rick Richardson <rick.richardson@comcast.net>
        * foo2qpdl et al: with -z3 (e.g. CLP-365) you can adjust
            Brightness and Contrast for monochrome prints, and you can adjust
            Saturation, Cyan-Red, Magenta-Green, Yellow-Blue Balances.

Re-download, make, make install, and remove and recreate the printer.

Wow, that was fast, thanks. I'll try it out this weekend and post the results. Hopefully it will help me avoid any hardware modding!
