PimPrint-Demo includes several demo rendering projects.
Basic technical examples
|Getting Started||Project from the Getting Started section, explaining the basic concept of PimPrint.|
|Command Demo||Fully source code documented demo of all PimPrint Rendering Commands.|
|LocalizationDemo||Example of a MasterLocaleRenderingProject. Rendering allows generation of document in a master locale. When rendering additional languages positions and dimensions for elements can be used from the rendered master locale.|
Example print products generating Pimcore Demo content showing the native integration with Pimcore.
Layout and content structure is inspired by the Web2Print Demo-Catalog in Pimcore Demo.
|Car Brochure||Brochures with car variants.
Example Car Brochure PDF
|Car List||Lists with car variants.
Example Car List PDF
|AccessoryPart List||AccessoryParts in the same layout as Car lists.|
Create a new document
All demos generate A4 portrait print documents. The page dimensions, marings, amount of pages, etc. are set automatically by PimPrint. So just create an empty new document.
All demos are implemented in a way that they can create single and facing page documents. The setting Facing Pages (marked green in the screenshot above) can either be unchecked (single page document) or checken (facing page document). The setting Start (merked red in the screenshot above) can be set to 1 or 2, to start on a left or right page. The only difference in generation will be the generation of page layout elements.
Generate a document
To generate a document with the PimPrint Demo, create a new document as described above.
Open the PimPrint InDesign plugin, open the Project pane, select a project, a publication and click on the green Start Generation button.
This will start the rendering process of the InDesign document.
Generating InDesign documents with PimPrint is as easy. Now it is a good time to explore the demo projects.
Asset download issues
Download errors are displayed in the generation overlay.
This might be because Pimcore is running in a Proxy environment. Please refer to the Development section for details. The config file you probably will have to edit is:
