Profile for 3M 3730-60

We are running 3M 3730-60 Translucent film for the first time. I am running it on an HP L370. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for a good profile to run it on. We made a custom profile based off of a preloaded generic backlit profile. However the lowest pass setting for that is 16. In the interest of saving time and ink, does anyone have any suggestions for a different profile I might be able to base a custom profile off of?

you can create 12 pass print mode in the same backlit profile, run the ink saturation test to determine the complete cured patch, input that in your print mode then made a simple icc profile for it.

but, on ink saturation, anything less than 200 is... well.. washed

I would generally not hope for fast printing on transparent media.

Transparent media are quite specific. To get deep colors they need lot of ink. Lot of ink means lot of waving, lot of drying time, and unstable hues near ink limits.

The first two can be solved by printing slower or 16-pass, while the last one is ICC dependent. It´s a bit problematic to base a high ink-limit media profile on a different/generic ICC.
