Default Platens

Hi I'm purchasing a diy Epson dtg 1430 and I want to know if I can find different attachments for this printer since the only one being sold with this printer is for tshirts. I would like to print on sweatshirts and sneakers and sleeves can anyone give me a alternative to use if there is one

I think it would be better if you share pictures about your printer to see what can we suggest...

Does the t shirt attachment move up and down? If so then I would have thought you can use it for sweatshirts.

My thoughts on printing on sweaters is that you should use a platen much narrower than you would use for T-shirts so that the material would clear between both side of the platen and printer, otherwise it would jam the printer.
