Default Showcase your working DIYDTG BUILD..

Thought i would post a new thread for those to post there working diydtg builds, this will allow builders to share there ideas and innovation in one thread.. The diydtg builds have come along way since i first started in 2010 and you tube is littered with them now!! this will give the potential builders a great format of innovation.. hopefully we will see alot of vids, info, and commentary on the diydtg builders/users experience.. post em up.. This should be a very exiting year for advancments in machines as they evolve into advanced simplified designs.. lets get some excitement going on in here again and take it to the next level..

Printer prints great only in Epson Best Photo/Superfine EKPrint mode.Platens is from mediapan wood and plan is to change to klirit/plastic platens for best results.For white shirts I`M use Epson driver and Epson Easy Photo print soft.I`M find out when setup Epson Matt paper printer prints Black directly from black cartiges.Prints in amazing quality and EKPrint not even near this quality for white t-shirts as you can see from picture.EKPrint demo copy is expired and now i`m colecting money to buy one copy.This last is very hard part here.Only thing that anoys me is printing second pass/print job without powering off printer.Does anybody managed to get this with 1100 or 1400 printers without electronics/microcontrollers?

Platen is changed from wood to aluminium 2mm and klirit/plastic 1,5mm for t-shirt.Shaft is now original from printer and printer now prints in all modes:text,graphics,photo,best photo and EKPrint: speed,fine,superfine mode.And I`m happy right now.
