Does Roland offer Mac Support?

Symptom

​I don't own a PC and/or I don't use Microsoft Windows. Does Roland have any Macintosh operating system support?

Cause

Roland offers RolandPrintStudio, a RIP software designed for MAC users, for Roland inkjet owners. For all other software Roland only offers Windows based PC support.

Solution

You can review the list of RolandPrintStudio supported printers at https://www.rolanddga.com/rolandprintstudio. ​

The only Mac support offered for Roland devices is for the cutting line where we offer a plugin for Mac versions of Adobe Illustrator.

Many Roland owners have been successful installing a Windows emulator such as Parrallels (http://www.parallels.com), VMWare Fusion (http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/) or Boot Camp (http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/) to run Roland software in a Mac environment, or to purchase a dedicatd PC to drive your Roland machine.
