VersaWorks 6 RIP Software

VersaWorks 6 RIP software is made to drive all the supported Roland DG printing devices seamlessly. Intuitive and easy-to-use, VersaWorks 6 is fully tailored around Roland DG printers features, offering dozens of printing and colour management functions, variable data management, Pantone ® libraries, process colour management, automatic cut contour, colour matching tools support, great performances and free updates are always available for Roland users.

More Powerful RIP Processing

VersaWorks 6 includes 64-bit native support to maximise performance of the latest 64-bit OS*. It improves processing capability for complicated data, including PDF files with complex vectors and multiple layers, with power and accuracy.

*A 32-bit binary RIP will be installed automatically if the installer detects a 32-bit OS.

Reproduce Special Effects Accurately

VersaWorks 6 supports processing of PDF files natively, rendering special effects, such as drop shadows and transparencies, the way they are intended to look in the design. Handle these files without hassle, for improved efficiency - from receiving the data to outputting consistent, high-quality results.

Intuitive User Interface.
Smart RIP Software

A new, modern-looking user interface offers clean and simple tools with drag-and-drop functionality to quickly add jobs to the print queue directly from folders on your desktop. A more icon-based RIP environment improves user experience and provides easy navigation and functionality for all your print tasks and job management.

True Rich Color 2

New True Rich Color Print Setting

To maximise the colour reproduction capability and the colour gamut provided by your printer and inks, we developed a new True Rich Color preset.

Now vibrant colour can be combined with neutral grays, smooth gradations and natural skin tones to create stunning graphics. This pioneering colour expression is unequalled for durable graphics.

Orange and Green colours management

Versaworks 6 can also manage the process colours Orange and Green. To maximise the effect of these new colour inks, a new Multi-Process Colour Function has been developed in VersaWorks 6 to enable using Orange and Green inks as process colours for more vibrant visual expression.


Orange adds high visibility and impact to printed graphics and offers a warm and welcoming glow with positive emotions, while Green adds natural comfort and relaxed confidence for smooth communications. VersaWorks provides a 122 spot colours library for Green and 130 spot colours library for orange.


Such colours help to expand the colour gamut significantly, reproduce specific colours for branding and logos, and obtain outputs like never before, working in combination with the TrueRich Color presets.

Achieve Consistent Colour Matching with VW-S1 Densitometer

The Printer Color Matching function of VersaWorks 6 works with VW-S1*, an easy-to-use density measurement device. The process uses reference and target files and makes it simple to match colour output over time or from two or more Roland printers with the same ink type, configuration and print settings – reducing time and waste and improving quality. 

 The handy VW-S1 densitometer is ideal for businesses who;

  • use multiple printers for large combined graphics 
  • have volume work for one client 
  • want to ensure consistent print quality over time for reprint orders.

*VW-S1 can only be used with the Printer Color Matching function and cannot be used for media calibration and/or to create media profiles.

Easy Printer Colour Matching for Consistent Colours

Do you own more than one same-model Roland device and want to preserve the consistency of the colour output between them? VersaWorks 6 offers an easy-to-use colour matching function to ensure consistent colour between jobs on one device over time or between multiple same-model printers when using the same ink type*. VersaWorks supports the X-Rite i1 Pro3 and the Roland Color Matching Tool VW-S1 to provide exact colour matching over time. 

If you own different Roland Printers, you can now simulate colour output from one device on an other by using Printer Simulation Profiles, for example from VG2-540 to VS-300i. 
With the Printer Color Matching Function of VersaWorks you can produce volume work from one client with multiple printers, or print a large, combined graphic with two printers, all with consistent colour, maintaining colour accuracy throughout the life of your Roland device.

*Valid only when using the same-model printers with the same ink type and configuration. Files must be printed with the same print settings including “Media Type” and “Print Quality.”


CutContour Lines Can Now be Added and Edited in VersaWorks 6

The latest VersaWorks 6 is equipped with a "Job Assistant" function that can automatically add contour lines for cutting PDF design data within the RIP software.

Even if the cut contour line is missing in a submitted file, printing and cutting can now be performed quickly without returning to the design editing software, allowing jobs with short delivery times to be reliably met.

Five Owned Named Print Queues and Hot Folders for Maximum Job Management and Efficiency

VersaWorks 6 helps busy print service providers plan and organise print production in advance with five print queues. Combined with five hot folders which you can name and unlimited queue settings, you can save and store options, capture specific print settings, and make production a fast, automated and continuous process. Ideal for recurring jobs and jobs involving multiple designers working in one location.

Generate a Special Color Layer Directly in the RIP

Generate a Special Colour Layer Directly in the RIP

Traditionally, when you wanted to specify a special colour layer like white, metallic, gloss/clear and primer, you needed to perform this task in your design software. With VersaWorks 6, you can set up a special colour layer directly in the RIP along with fine adjustments to the position and size of the layer. This means quick and simple set up, saving time and optimising your printing workflow.

PANTONE® Library and Roland Color System

As well as featuring a built-in PANTONE® library with detailed spot colour matching and choices, VersaWorks 6 supports comprehensive colour libraries and offers features that enable automated colour-matching of logos and other corporate identity elements.

Compatible with Popular Spectrophotometers Used in Wide Format Printing

In order to respond to the diverse colour matching needs of printing businesses, such as accurately reproducing an intended colour, precisely printing a corporate colour specified by the client, or managing the printer so that the same colour is always output, a spectrophotometer is essential.

The latest VersaWorks 6 supports drivers for spectrophotometers from major manufacturers widely used in the wide format printing field, such as X-rite's i1 series and Barbieri's Spectro LFP series.
