Like the board with the single and double pass. Can you do a single pass with under-base? And which rip work best in your view?

The picture below is the finished product. I will be running actual print videos also in the next week or 2. Hope you guys enjoy! and yes that is a wood base in the video :)


I was wondering if you could help me. After buying all the parts for our r3000 conversion, Tyler from Spectra talked me into trading in our Avenger board for the new t-dozer board...which I did. After following all his videos for build we got to the part where we built the shelf to mount boards to and realized that the tdozer board does not fit in the space allowed with the over boards. I emailed Tyler and he said they figured that out and were mounting the boards different now since a motor sensor (or something like that) was no longer needed with the tdozer board...said he would have videos up at end of the week to help. That was over 2 weeks ago (and I know they are super busy) but now he won't email me back. We need to get our build finished and I see yours is similar so any help you can give us would be great so we can get are build done. Thanks Cheryl

Hi Cheryl,

The Tdozer board mounts in the original tray, these are the video series you need to complete the conversion. best of luck.

thanks.. yes.. you would run it as a single pass on the printer the rip handles the single pass color/ white. Rip software is all a matter of preference of the end user. i have never found one rip that has it all per se. test the various rips and you will find one to your liking. I know many people use/ own multiple brands of rip software depending on what there printing. I let the rip guys deal in those matters :) Im only interested in the machine end so i stay away from software/ink/supplies and leave that to the end users choice.

Thanks..we will take a look at them. But will these work for ours since it is a R3000?

There are already a couple kits like this on the market.

This company has been making them for years so they are well tested: Portable Base - A3 - R3000/SC-P600/1430/1500W - USD $850.00 : UFO Printer, Flatbed Printer, Textile Machine, UV Printer, DTG solutions, Uncoated Direct Printing

I'm curious where this info is coming from?

I've been researching the UFO setup for a while now, plenty of forum users who have multiple UFO's running... lotsa threads about it if you search "UFO Printer":

https://www.t-shirtforums.com/diy-dtg/t458370.html

I was actually wondering why T-Dozer chose to use wood instead of opting for the openbuild model that UFO and Spectra use... admittedly, a bit more expensive... it just seems like the Lego-style of openbuilds are a little nicer, lighter, more accessible than carpentry (no mess, no real tools needed, no painting, etc):

V-Slotâ„¢ Linear Actuator Bundle (Belt Driven) - OpenBuilds Part Store

Anyway, that's just aesthetic... the only thing stopping me from buying a UFO was this recent thread update... the current T-Dozer is looking ideal... an American made version of the UFO without the Spectra pricetag (I need two machines running at the same time, still can't anywhere near afford $25,000 in DTG's though)... so DIY is the ticket.

I'm curious what ballpark pricetag the T-Dozer is gonna have though?

-
@german13: Thank you so much for the P600 videos, those were extremely helpful in understanding all the reasoning behind the chopping process... that was huge and exceptionally well done!

Yes, it will work for the r3000, you just need to mount it in the original tray. only the cover open wire is different which is shown in the videos you already had. If you have any questions on that contact Tyler.. but yes all the same operation, the r3000 is hard to come by these days but there are still a few out there and few who already have them. This is why i ran the video on the P600.

Jeff,

You guys proved with the Spectra DIY that a $3 arduino can do just fine controlling the printer. Best prices!!! high quality UNO R3 MEGA328P for Arduino UNO R3 NO USB CABLE-in Other Electronic Components from Electronic Components & Supplies on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group


Resetting your count to 0 at startup and then + and - the count as the motor moves isn't "Advanced" technology.


I think it's time for an Open Source Arduino project that is truly DIY.

If you have an idea for something you should pursue that and you have had many years to do so. You have plenty of threads on the forum where you can speak your ideas and tender your customers. Seems you are very interested in the T-Dozer project all the sudden, I don't use arduino programming but i look forward to you starting your free arduino open source project under your own thread, should be interesting project for you,

I'm not hiding who I am.

Can you say the same?

Maybe you should be more open about your quiet affiliation with other DTG products that you can be seen pushing around the internet.

I just thought it needs to be clear that you aren't here out of the kindness of your heart. You're here to post information and videos that then require a purchase from you that has a substantial markup.

You are no different than the people you so loudly railed against. You came on the forum, borrowed information, shared some basics back and then later return to push a product for profit.

The information is free on both the conversion and base building, a very detailed valuable resource that no one has done with detail. No one has to use my product they can use any product they want, there are many choices. I have provided free info here since 2010.

We both know that's not the goal here.

You created a big long thread with no clear instructions to actually make a dtg printer easily then you end it now with what boils down to promotional videos for your controller that you sell.

Funny UFO David started adding these same types of videos a while back and they all got deleted by the moderators as self promotion.

Rodney's inbox would be blowing up if someone else would've pulled this move.
