Do you have any videos you can post of the Genesis printing on a black shirt?

Here is a video we just took the last day of the show at tear down, but it shows the print on black. These times are not optimized for speed, so when that happens, it'll speed up the process.

1. Currently, the print head goes the entire distance left to right. We will have it print only in the area it needs printed.

2. We don't have the auto rapid 2nd pass set yet, but when we enable that, it will reduce the amount of time for the 2nd layer because it won't home, it will go right back in and begin printing.

With these two features, we should be able to shave off about 30 seconds on a print like this.

How much time between the white and color. It looks like it laid the white pretty thick. What was the wait time before the machine was able to print on the white.

I had set it to a 45 second dwell time. There are several ways to speed up this process:

1. Reduce the amount of white ink lay down. There is a threshold where it's enough white ink to dry almost instant and where it's still bright. This is the first time I operated the Genesis at a trade show, so I didn't have anything tweaked.

2. Pretreat chemistry. This is the same pretreat we've been using for years. More advanced pretreat is almost here that can gel the ink almost instantly.

3. A feature on the Genesis that I'm not at liberty to discuss, but I can say if it goes as expected, we can flood it with more ink with no problems.

4. Ink. We are still using the 3500 series white, we don't have the newest white ink yet, only the 6000 series in colors.

Remember, we are still in the beta stages, so we can't show all features due to the protection of our intellectual property.
