Ok, so I read the first 6 pages of this, and have to take a break AWESOME!!! I think when I get time again, I'll start reading backwards and get a more current take on this.

Q's tho. I have a R2200 - is this currently supported?
As a 'RIP' - would this allow me to output more ink from specific carts?
Would it allow me to print from ALL carts? (So I could switch to all black?)
I am wondering if this would be a good option for outputting darker/more opaque films for my screen printing

Thanx Can't wait to read on this more! I'm wanting to build a DTG soon, so this is going to be great

i have been working on the gutenprint and mainly gutenrip for quite sometime basicly gutenprint is a set of drivers orriginally writen for unix based systems and has been ported to windows a few times by various programers

gutenprint can definatley lay down more ink than the original drivers but its alot of messing around getting the settings right also all carts can be changed to black really easy but with all carts changed to black then you should have loads of ink anyways

also the r2200 is really not supported by the recent ported verison to windows if your using linux then great but if not i would sugest trying it with another driver like the R2400 i dont no about the r2200

Anyways give it a go its free so obviolsy there are limitation to what you can do and also it was made just to print not to be a rip

Many thanks Rob

I'm currently using my R2200 with the stock config:

96 nozzles x 7 (Photo Black/Matte Black, Light Black, Cyan, Light Cyan, Magenta, Light Magenta, Yellow)

I don't really want to attempt swapping to all black until I know I'm going to be good with whatever RIP I choose....

As I understand it, I need the rip to tell it to print from all carts.

I'll have to check it out.

I'm on Macs for all my graphics and audio work.....
I see the Gutenprint driver in there, but when it comes up I don't get these types of options.

I'll have to do some more research on it.

Are you able to point me to a link for downloading a driver/app/utility/interface or whatever is available for it????
The links I saw here are broken and the stuff isn't there anymore.
Is this what I'm looking for? http://gutenprint.en.softonic.com/mac
Simply states OSX
I'm currently on OS 10.5.8, not sure if I should get a particular version of Gutenprint???

Sorry if these are stupid Q's - first look into this stuff.

if your using a mac then i really cant be much use i have a mac but havnt got gutenprint on it i have been developing for windows systems only the windows version has xml files im not sure with mac i wouldnt no where it would put the files to edit

Also yes you need to make sure at what your doing with your printer is really what you want to do i have a r1800 and do dual cmyk only no white underbase its just to expensive and time consuming for me but i can lay down enoght ink to really drench the tshirt in whatever colour i chose.


the link you have is correct you might want to check that you have the right version tho i have a intel and a powerpc mac im not sure if gutenprint will work on both (universal binaries) i might give it a go but as most people are using windows then i will mainly work on that version

if you can find the xml files after install then we can work on setting it up to print black from all carts or turn it into a dtg with white carts

Many Thanks

Rob

Hey Rob don't you have a lot of customers asking for black shirts? Have you thought of other methods? I am now seeing some printers trying screen printing the white then dtg the color over it.

My main reason for building a dtg is for printing on black while using sublimation/chromoblast for whites.

do they screen print on the dtg platen? I am thinking of how they manage issues associated with registration.

Check this thread out. It's a new direction in dtg. I always say "leave it up to man and he will come up with another plan".
