after extensive research and development, I'am in the process of adding a micro controller to the epson 1100 workforce, which can work with the 1400 as well.. this mod will control the timing of the factory epson sensors (esp)..the pe and apf sesor control timing. to allow the removal of the apf motor and tray completely. this will eleminate the preprint dance using the apf motor and wheel on the mods, and allow for repeatable platen results with a properly designed platen. just load and print basically. i will incorporate a line sensor for platen for repeat prints for accuracy (like white base and then color over) we are in the programming stage right now and within the month should have a working unit to test..at that point we will post videos...i'm confident this will allow many to enjoy a low cost dtg or diy dtg printer using this hardware..
