Default Resources for building your own dtg machine.

The big $150 diy dtg thread has gotten so big now, it is taking people hours to read it. As people keep repeatedly asking where to get more information, especially the plans and the videos, I am putting some of the links here, so people don't have to keep breaking into other threads.

Plans...... Made my own DTG Printer for $150

Videos.... DIY DTG Printer - Truveo ??????


Forum Section: https://www.t-shirtforums.com/diy-dtg/

Yahoo group.... homemade_dtg : Homemade_DTG Direct to Garment Printer


If you have other links to add to this list that will help people find the resources and supplies to build their own diy dtg, please feel free to contribute.

Thanks to Rodney for giving the DIY DTG its own category....

Those that can - build, those that can't - buy.

Default Re: Resources for building your own dtg machine.

it had been down for an age anyway, the plans are linked on the uber thread in here. If you do go for it i would recommend a epson 760 (a4 version of the a3 1160 i use) if you can find one, even a very old second hand one, just get a new printhead (£75 in the UK), you get the pump with that a4 printer, making it a very viable a4 dtg.

What can you print to?

By the way, had a call from another source that sells the brother and the first thing they told me is, everyone else uses a hacked epson as their engine.

So something must be right

Default Re: Resources for building your own dtg machine.

I'm a newbie but the home made DTG was very intriguing. Doesn't it require some kind of special ink to keep from bleeding or is it put on a heat press to set the ink or something?
