I don`t have plans but it doesn't matter. I'm an engineer.
I run a production department in small advertisement agency for a couple of years now.
I`ve lots of CNC machines so it don`t looks to be hard to make DIY DTG printer for me.
I think I will made two or three 8 color A3+ printers just for myself.
I`ve read a lot about this on this forum and I found lots of usefull information.

I think there will never be full set of complete plans becouse it can be build on so much different ways.
If someone build 1-2-3 DIY printers it a waste of time to make professional documentation in CAD/CAM enviroment.
You just build it. ;)

EDIT:
I will add some photos when I finish frame and drive for bed.

Need help with my Epson R1800 DIY DTG,

I have exhausted my searches through countless forums, and youtube videos and have become stuck.

I have built a DIY DTG using the usual draw bearing system. On start up the printer goes through the usual phase of shuffling left slowly, then right fast & up and down. Then spins the main drive shaft making a half turn. After this two fast flashing red lights appear one for the ink and other paper feed.

I have also noticed that the PF sensor is not lighting up red (LED), does this mean I have damaged it?

I am unable to get the printer to connect properly to my computer (windows 7) despite having the correct soft wear. MultiRIP (trial) also has a problem when processing a job a ‘power rip’ error appears with ‘can’t write to drive’

My ink levels show up on the computer but are low, should a MultiRIP not be able to by-pass this? I am using genuine Epson ink cartridges at the moment, just to test before I purchase a ciss system.

My last problem seems to be my build, I am unsure where to mount the mother circuit board, ( I cannot opt for the usual back top of the printer as my motor cable is not long enough. I also have a problem with the ASF sensor & motor as I created the shortened version from Frank ‘ Ipartco’s youtube channel’ (r1900). But I now have a problem of where to place the mother board, and this small ASF version due to wire lengths. – ( I shall try to take pictures asap.)

But until then does anyone have any ideas, or pictures of what parts I may be able to get rid off and what the finished setup should look like in relation to an Epson R1800/1900 without any extra mods.

P.S I am not a electronics specialist and don’t have soldering equipment.

Thanks you for all your input in advance!

Hi has anyone bought these plans before? diy-dtg-printer.com


Thanks so much
I would be cautious on purchasing diydtg plans, get detailed info and proof of an actual working build!! The domain is registered to a person from new york along with 18 other similar type business domains.. make sure the seller has the credibility of a working build and theres not to many i know of outside this forum and its members here:)

Theres a section in the clue book that tells you how to loop the cdr sensor and the cover sensor..

all you do is run a looped wire that bypasses both of those switches then the printer thinks everything is closed as it should...

read read read:)
can you tell me where i can get a clue book from just to get some information please mate im begging you.

You could use the entire body. You would need to extend some wires although a lot of people have done that. This is a area that a lot of people have done there own thing, In fact I am rethinking about cutting mine down more so i don't have to extend any wires. You will see what I do in some up coming videos, I just got back from the hardware store!
guys this is amazing work here love you all to bits. but i am not getting much luck in undertstanding what this part of the project is. why do we need this part of the ast and what will it be used for.

There are many who have finished the project. This thread dried up though. There is lots if info scattered around the forum, you just have to read through and learn as you go. I think most builders end up making their own tweaks as they go . It's worth the work for the results.

One thing I have not seen is the end results. Is it actually worth the effort??
