Hey Jeff what can you tell me about this ink? http://www.t-shirtforums.com/neoflex/t223581-2.html
Is it a sinderella fairy tale?
We will be testing this ink which will take some time to get feedback! This will take place at our Headquarters in Philly and a few select outside customers determined by the owner! Just keep an eye on that thread for reviews but I suspect it will be awhile we run everything thru the mill first:)

I will keep an eye on it. It sound a little too good to be true. Especially being able to sublimate it as well as print dtg. It defies all the theories we have heard before. This could knock sawgrass out of business maybe? If it works it would definitely bring down the cost of printing.

We will find out for sure! testing is a big part of keeping on top of the game! you cant discount any product, you never know! We test so many different applications all the time from ink, consumables, software, hardware its endless:) someone is always sending you something and even if 1 of 10 is a hit your making progress, it has to be top notch at all American to see the light..

Re: R1900BUILD-Mission accomplished "license to thrill"

Hi, Where can i find this video?

It is now official she is the T-DOZER:) here is the video of her knocking out some shirts. again i did a video from the power up sequence all the way thru printing two shirts, at the start up you can see the pf motor does not move (by evidencing no movement of the platen)

the printer is 100% error free as seen. i still have not mounted my power button pad (epson original) or additional two buttons (my modifications) i just could not hold back showing the video of what she can do, before i completed the final details:D keep in mind all thru-out the video the printer is not secured yet and either are the base covers..she is smooth;)

I'm still using the cardboard platen template, the final platen is plexi and weighs in at 1.3 pds. i believe i have accomplished the goals i set prior to the build. small foot print, light weight delivery system, portable, etc-etc.

I'm using 100% epson firmware with only some wiring modifications (rerouting) at the board as explained previously. everything required to do this build was purchased at lowes home improvement store with the exception of the plastic base (which can be substituted) and the printer itself of course..

I'm still using trial versions of the rip.. i tried multi-rip gp first and now i'm on my second brand of a trial version. i wish i could have done a shirt of each at the same time but the driver configurations don't agree with each other including the epson driver (you can only use one at a time on the computer without complications by my experience) so I'm testing individually..

i can tell you the rip is mandatory in my opinion, (its the business end of the deal):D and there are some very cool features and settings to play with ...im still learning..

i finally learned to adjust the settings in the rip for the table adjustment, the videos show it printing in 1400x1400. now i can print in 720x720 with the same quality as far as proportion and by my calculation it prints twice as fast..;) the 1400x1400 is still the best quality image all around as far as details etc and im sure that i will print with that setting most often..

well i hope you enjoy the show as much as i did..;)

P.S i added the video of the printer printing at 720x720 res dual cmyk.. i calculate start of print at the :59 sec point in the video and the end of print at 1:37 so i came up with 38second print on an 11x11 detailed graphic...a major feat using the stock epson firmware with its jerky motion in the 720 res mode with the r1900 imho, watch the very bottom of the shirt bounce during the print steps, and then check out the detailed print...

regards
jeff
