I am using Resolute Inks, I left the printer with the cmyk inks for 20 days when i powered it on again i did a simple head clean from the ink button and i got a 100% perfect nozzle check. With white i need to make one cleaning each 2-3 days.

Humidity is very good over here for dtg also

Resolute and Tprint test very similar however they both evaporate at an alarming rate. Try to keep in an enclosed enviroment and ink bottles sealed as much as possible.

True the CMYK are generally not a problem, the Tprint and Resolute inks are less prone to clogging due to composition, the evaporation I referred to is in the white. The TIO2 particle size is smaller with these brands making it slower to separate and easier to get back in solution. White is always the problem.

just wanted to throw this video out here aswell... there is a new printer coming on the market for office/home printers it prints at 6" a second at 1600x1600 dpi:eek:...they already have this in a labeling system.. its very exciting the print head is stationary and covers the entire length of the paper or substrate path!!! it prints at astonishing speeds!!! i have sent some emails to them and read there desktop models will be at market mid 2011 is the projection.. it has been delayed previously however..with costs i have read cheaper or equaling existing prices of printers in the same class!! YouTube - Memjet High Speed Inkjet Printer

once available i will certainly buy one for testing, an equiv to the 1900... i beleive if this works as well as it looks it will change printing applications to come for sure!!! check out there vids and visit there site.. its very cool with tons of info!

Great job on your printer, what printer did you use, and do you have any issues with the white ink clogging?
Thanks

Re: Mission accomplished "license to thrill"
 
I have still the problem of obstruction of white heads, I have a completely clogged head, I was told to clean the heads with distilled water and a cloth that leaves no residue, and every time I turn on the printer head cleaning, I hope to fix as soon as possible, any progress, I will tell.
im using an epson r1900
and dtg inks,

Re: Mission accomplished "license to thrill"
 
can you use solvent inks through an epson to be able to send a laptop case through or nintendo ds or something, or is it different technology? Hi btw....loving the work

also...Flexisign Pro has a RIP / PRINT function, do you think this would work with the R1900 DIY DTG?

Many thanks

I am using resolute white in a diy closed ink delivery system , made from a liquid soap refill bag, some tubings and a 3 way air splitter fitting. since the system is closed (no breathing holes necessary) i guess there is no evaporation at all.
i installed the system a few days ago and will let you know how it performs during the next days.

Where u get the bag? If you can vac the air out of the bag it helps also. U can use a food saver vac with canister attach.
