Default arduino question to use with Epson r-1800

I am sure some of you are using Arduino with diy dtg printers.. I like to install one with the Epson R-1800 conversion,, don't have a clue where to start. Don't know what all I need to purchase to allow the printer to stop/go back and forth by using buttons. Schematics would be great if anyone could provide one.. Lots of thanks.

You need more than a schematic. Do you know how to program an Arduino to achieve your intentions?

Not a wise thing to do as a newbie.
You should start with a P600/R3000 and get the Open DTG kit which will be ready programmed, and you can get support.

I already built an R-3000 and used UFO conversion Kit. I want to do something similar with the 1800..

What do I really need to purchase to make the R-1800 work with arduino,, and idea of what are the cost. Programing and code no problem I have access to that.

You have to find somebody who's done it, and he is willing to share the knowledge. There problems are the sensors, and the gear ratios.

If your looking for something easy to program look no further than this plc/mcu better than arduino. Quite a few diy builders moving to this format, you will need knowledge of how the printer works to achieve the objective.
