Default Re: So what is the genesis?

I was watching the video, and I got put into a trance by that soft New Age Harp Music... Was expecting the printing scene to transition into another one, where attractive female Androids were curing shirts with there minds...

I couldn't make it to SGIA to ask you in person, with my child-like ability to machine-gun question folks (think "Uncle Buck"), so I'll take a stab here:

- Does this fine looking garment-printing apparatus employ a 'wetcap' system at all, for capped print heads? For those of us who live where rain is afraid to drop.

- Does the print head carriage travel the entire span of the surface no matter how small the design is? I saw it going the distance in the video, but was unable to tell if there were small details in the design that YouTube prevents us seeing...

- Is the Genesis RIP from scratch/proprietary , or based on one of the existing versions?

- Is that cool "flush" line inserted toward end of the ink's travel path, near the head?

- Is there Circulation for White?


Apologize if these have already been answered - I couldn't find that info. Thanks and Good Luck with Genesis. I would buy based on looks alone, but I am a little crazy.

Mission accomplished.

The cap is wet and when going to print, the blade wipes the head. We also go further, if the printer is left unattended for xx amount of hours (we have an idea of how long, but need further testing for effectiveness), the white ink will be flushed out of the print head only.

It will travel the distance of the design only.

Currently we are using the Mod1 RIP redesigned for the system. This will change, it's only a temporary solution for testing of the Genesis only.

Yes

The current video shows the Genesis still in the beta stage. We have slowed the printing down and haven't fully added all features. As we continue, we will talk about more features, and give real speed tests but for now, this is what we can present.

That's Hawt...

If that's the Beta ver, then I'll highly anticipate the production model.. WIM, WetCap, Auto-Flush are all attributes I have wanted to see come together in one package, for a while. If the RIP is right, Genesis will be king of the hill in DTG. Looks like you've addressed all concerns. Thanks for the reply

We began in the direct to garment market in 2002, before there really was a market. Genesis is pretty much everything we've learned and then some. Thanks!

Things are coming along pretty good. We've been working on a few things to improve print quality using a low print resolution as well as working on improvements for consistency in various climate conditions. There's always something new and the great thing is, since this is from the ground up, we aren't under the constraints of pre-existing functionality and limitations. Who says evolution doesn't exist?
