That thread is way too big to read through. I wouldn't mind seeing those who have made one post their experiences here.

I also am interested in the DIY DTG printers. I did pay the 25 bucks to diydtg.com but haven't been able to access the third set of plans or the forum there. Still hoping I'll get something for my "donation".

I'm a member of the forum, the plans are great to get started.
I'm building mine out of the 2200 and documenting the sensor on / off positions during various stages such as power on, printing, etc.

Glad to hear that they aren't out of business. How long after making the donation did you get some sort of cconfirmation and access to the forums ?

Correct, and it was about a day or so.

There is a lot of great info on the site. I'd love new members to join so we can discuss more than just the current plans, but things like how to improve components, loading mechanisms, platens, bulk ink systems etc.

I agree, it is DIY after all. Also, IMO the plans for the C88 are good to look at and get an idea how the printer works, but the C88 would never make a good shirt printer. For that you would need one such as the R1800, R1900, 2200, etc, along with a Rip. None of those machines have plans, however there are alot of people discussing their projects there, which is great to see how people figured out certain problems.

I just purchased two (2) Epson R1900 last night in preparation of building myself at least one (1) dtg printer. Hopefully the process is fun, exciting, successful!
