AccuRIP™ Trade-up Plan
Q. What is the AccuRIP™ Trade-up Plan and how does it work?
A. Any user who has AccuRIP™ can trade-up to the full version of CADLink FilmMaker for only $295. All the user has to do is provide a dongle, a copy of the sales receipt or take a screen shot of the AccuRIP™ serial number from their computer. This upgrade is limited to printers sized 24-inches and under.
Q. Why was the AccuRIP™ Trade-up Plan implemented?
A. Freehand announced on their website that they have suspended shipping their current RIP and will introduce a new RIP later this year. In the meantime, Freehand is offering a low-cost limited version for $299 that has very few features. CADLink FilmMaker is far superior to this very basic RIP and is LESS expensive.
Q. Does CADLink offer a Macintosh based RIP?
