Docucolor 3535 and Mavericks

Jump to solution

Hi All,

 

We've got a DC3535 with super low miles on it with an EX3535 Fiery unit. Our designers all use Macs and it looks like the last OS that could print to the 3535 is Mountain Lion (10.8).

 

I was able to get the printer to print from a brand new MacBook Pro running Mavericks by installing a driver for a much newer Docucolor, but it prints out a page full of code prior to finishing every print job. Does anyone know of a good solution or workaround? Any new computers we get will have Mavericks and we can't afford to replace the machine (besides, we own it and it works great for us).

 

I wonder how hard (ie $$) it would be to have a programmer adapt the older driver to be Mavericks compatibile.

 

Any feedback appreciated!

Xerox DocuColor 3535
built-in Fiery controller -This product does not have support for Mavericks
Creo Spire CXP3535 - This product does not have support for Mavericks
Fiery EX3535 - This product does not have support for Mavericks
Splash G3535 -This product does not have support for Mavericks
 
Thats what it say in the compatibility list, you could call Xerox and ask them if it's going to be an updated driver for this machine or not.
 
Best Regards

Yes, thanks Kimzi - that's why I was asking if there if anyone had discovered a workaround :)

hi, i allways print to a Postscript file and import it into the Fiery Workstation software. It's indirect, i know, but it is a workaround.
the problem is that this printer doesn't support Hotfolders, otherwise that would be an option for you...
the Creo software (CXP3535(e)) however does support Hot folders :-)

also, the EX3535 does support Postscript import, thus you could install the PPD onto your Windows/OSX workstations and print to a PS-file, then import this file on the Fiery (e.g. via Workstation v4) and print it like that. I know, it's a bit clumsy BUT it does work :-)

I also have several DC3535 which works perfect.

But I use Mac, and cannot use these DC3535, because there is no drivers to Mavrick.

What shall we do?

we can not afford to buy new printers.
Xerox must surely have a solution?

Hi you!

 

Do as tbotten suggested, it works but obviously is a bit fiddly.

Indeed, that solutions works like a charm! I can confirm you that it also works on OSX 10.9.x with the PPD-driver.

 

Good luck

I use DD3535 built-in fiery on mavvericks 10.9.5 without problem. Install printer with IP static, LPD, port 9100 and add xerox 3535 ps.ppd
