Hello,

 

Currently print devices are added and installed based on universal print driver. How could Universal Print fulfill the needs as print solution for plotters and large format industrial printers? I can imagine that the universal print driver would not be sufficient. What would you suggest? It would be nice if Universal Print can also deploy additional drivers along with the installation of the print device once the users press the "add device" button.

@raymondesray We think that Universal Print's driverless flow should enable most features used in enterprise printing once we finish building out our feature set.

 

If you foresee some scenarios that Universal Print won't support out-of-the-box with IPP, we'd definitely love to hear about those!

 

Please post those on the Feature Requests page so that we can track and prioritize your request :)
