I like that visors can be done also as they are a popular item and it seems like we have always had to use an ASI vendor to get our visors done so that seems to be an excellent option to be able to offer customers.

Thanks for posting this.

Reid, sorry I've been pretty busy this week and wasn't able to get back to you right away. I've used the hat platen for screen printing. There is a foam piece that has a notch out of it that the seem from the inside of a six panel hat fits in to keep it flat. Although I haven't used the platen on the mod (yet ), it prints well with screen printing so I know it will print good with dtg.

The cap platen is great. I just wonder if it can center the printing into the printing area automatically or we have to do it. Is there a video showing the MOD printing on caps?

You would have to place it correctly on screen, but templates can easily be made for consistent placement.

1: Printer-mod @40lbs box
2: Main frame @40LBS box
3: Y axis @30 LBS box

This makes the mod quite portable if needed.
It also allows any module to be shipped via any carrier like (UPS,FED-EX....) overnight if need be.
And How much does the 4th box with all accessories weigh?

How many bags of ink do people usually go through in say half a year?

That's a tough question because it will depend on your volume.

The average shirt for no white inks would cost $.25 for the print. If the price is $280 per liter, then that would theoretically yield 1,120 prints at that size. Of course there are head cleans, etc., so I tend to look at it as more like 500 - 750 shirts per 1 liter of ink (250ml of each CMYK). This is a good safe number.

I don't think there is a consistency for knowing exactly how much ink you go through.

Unless you had the same print job and it was your only order.

Otherwise, there really is not telling how much one goes through in 6 months. There are too many factors in the equation to have a correct answer.

The normal shipping box that holds the Main frame and Y axis with all the accessories is 24"H x 24"W x 48"L and weighs under 160lbs.
Why do these 2 units packed weigh more than the whole printer itself?

Would that be for a print size like the one on the t-shirt on your profile?

It's the packaging with accessories and if crating is necessary. All assembled, my machine weighs just over 130 pounds. But this includes accessories and ink.

Does someone have pics of the modules taken apart? It would help me a lot.

Hey Marcelo, I can get you some pictures tomorrow if you would like. Also, are you still planning on making it to Belquette this or next week?

I will be arriving in Florida on the 5th but I have to go to Miami first.
I have to make sure I have all the paperwork in hands in order to take the printer with me when I leave.

I have one more question. If I buy it and asked for the printer to be delivered outside of Florida then I can avoid sales tax (I believe) but in the case I go and pick the printer over there then will I have to pay state taxes anyway?
