Have had mine for about 2 weeks now. Prints great, although kinda slow. Seems to have a great color range and the prints press awesome.
Like it 10X better then my old SG800 so far. Time will tell on what the future brings though but up to this point I am very happy with the purchase.

The only things that come to mind would be opening it up to follow the lines and pulling the head, but probably not good advice for non- techs to try.
I will be ordering mine next week, getting concerned.

Thanks for sharing, please keep us posted.

Just received my F570, but it does not come with a cable.
Can I use just any USB cable from Amazon?

Uncle Remus I have a question.
I do alot of vinyl and Rhinestone and now want to do Sublim and looking to do the F570. I know most will think alot of money for a beginner sublim but being we get alot of requests for shirts with full print on them and they know they can't have cotton, I figure between that and the numerous tourist gift shops we make misc products for, it hopefully will be a good investment. Also gonna get a cup press but still trying to figure out the best for that too as we won't just do coffee cups.


Anyway, the true question that I am not sure is actual or not. I know someone that has the T3170 and she was told that she has to figure out colors on printer vs computer. Her quote to me is


it's still a little confusing to me...

the ink is in CMYK but the design i
s created in RBG... and then there

are drivers... it's a lot to take in



I'm still trying to figure it all out... some people have no problems with the get go "printing" the correct colors... I had some issues when I print from photoshop, so I print from illustartor instead... depends on where you get your ink, printer type, and program you are using and drivers... so I still need to practice my colors...


Is this fact? Or is this something strictly on the T3170 and not the F570? I am heading toward the F570 but don't want to be having these color issues at $2500.

TIA for all the help

As far as i know, the F570 is a purpose built Sublimation printer while the T3170 is not. The T3170 looks to be an ecotank version of the T3270 and i am sure you will need profiles to get the right colors you want. Or you can do trial and error to find the right colors you want.

I think you are talking about the T3170X, BHPhoto list price is $1995. The T3170 looks similar but is a cartridge printer (no sublimation refillable cartridges available) and the BHPhoto list price is $895.

To do full print on a tshirt you need at the very minimum a printer, paper and press that handle 30x 40" and that will take you to a size 1X - after that you need to even go larger.

That is it, she stated it cost her $895.00.
I am ordering a F570, I was just curious if the two ran the same that you have to coordinate colors with the F570 as she mentioned you have to do with the T3170


Thank you

Ive had mine for 2 weeks and cant get any roll paper. No stock in the country. Epson basically told me " My problem" Not a bad printer but the roll paper must to be theirs (have not been able to find a replacement that works or is cost effective)

Only buy if you using sheet paper but then you are overpaying for the machine. I would not recommend until Epson get its stock up ( They cant tell me when)
