Claim of US Patent No. 10,183,514

1. A printing system comprising:a print engine disposed at a first location in a print path of the printing system;
a curing engine disposed at a second location in the print path;
a controller coupled to the print engine and the curing engine; and
a non-transitory computer readable storage medium comprising executable code, that when executed by the controller, causes the controller to control the print engine to:
control the print engine to generate a calibration image;
control the curing engine to cure the calibration image based on curing engine calibration settings to generate a cured calibration image;
receive user input corresponding to a visual inspection of an image characteristic of the cured calibration image; and
update the curing engine calibration settings in response to the user input,
wherein the curing engine comprises a plurality of curing energy source modules and the curing engine calibration settings comprise individual power level settings corresponding to each of the plurality of curing energy source modules to generate an even radiant energy across a substrate to uniformly cure an image printed on the substrate.
