1) You need to heat up the media before printing on them with latex.Aren't DTG inks dried and fixed with a heat press? Has anyone tried printing with latex on t-shirts? There is a canvas medium available for Latex printers.
1.) I posted pics and description on the builders group of how i make my spit tray, there are many ways but it will give you reference.
2.) I would consult with the folks who sell the bulk ink carts systems for your best options, i would start out with refill carts until your familar with how everything works.
3.) Waste ink, any waste bottle or bag will work, its normally set on the side of the base " lower than the printer" It will eject waste ink slightly up gravity but best is lower than the printer.
4.)Always want to flush the system from OEM inks, you will need a set of flushing carts same as regular carts only cleaning solution. you want to get the adjustment program for the P-600 it has an ink charge feature that can be used for charging flushing/ It also has 3 levels of cleaning that can be used for the same. Ink charges require the carts to show completely full after the first use they will never be all full at once again so at that point the 3 different levels of cleaning can be used. adjustment program link was put on the builders group.
5.) I would email the site direct for any updates on the Platen, we are at the mercy of the manufacturer on those. Best wishes
you saved me a millon headaches, couldn´t be more gratefulHere's a link for those looking for "CLUES" https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1Jxeh_lcQsgRzVQazhWcmtYNWc/edit
As for making a high-quality product professional engineered DTG product OpenDTG has done that using the Arduino which has been used by millions of DIYers for a wide range of products.It is very difficult to make a high quality product professionally engineered on the cheap and provide 24 hour service- that will never exist with cheap quality ardunio style competition! plain and simple!
As long as you are happy thats all that matters right!!! you should be all set then... let the true open source options be known and the people free to chose, again this is the diy section! There is a ton of free video education available that's non bias on quality let the public decide for themselves whats what.. Trinamic is a true open source plain and simple! when i became aware of options like trinamic and others with the qaulity level and the scale of which a major manufacturer produces, i knew the 3rd party controls had a limited life span... It is controllers like trinamic and other similar options that will be the predominate force in the diy application.. the limited profit options are making the complete machine for resale.. that is limited aswell with epson frequent firmware changes (like the infamous 0x73 in the middle of printer production, along with country specific firmware changes! ) and ink check changes coming in the future (why i moved on)As for making a high-quality product professional engineered DTG product OpenDTG has done that using the Arduino which has been used by millions of DIYers for a wide range of products.
If you talking about T-Dozer then I fully agree.
I bought a T-Dozer kit, Jeff . . . And I and a number of others who I've traded emails with are not exactly happy with the way you and Tyler conducted yourselves with regards to T-Dozer's "Business Plan."
I find it completely disingenuous that you failed to include OpenDTG in your links. It is by far the best site on the web for those looking to go the DIY DTG route.
As far as "As long as your happy", I'm happy that T-Dozer isn't screwing any more people . . . that's what make me happy!!!!
I know for fact what the developer sold to commercial 3rd parties and the diy crowd, (when i was there) ! the commercial was 100 fold compared to the diy! but like i said i left over a year ago! so i have no idea who this is being sold to commercially these days! you are starting to sound bias ....to certain places, i have posted many options no bias here... Im trying very hard to be positive and i don't want to say anything negative about anyone ...maybe your not aware of the past histories of those who used to manufacturer printers turned diy electronic manufacturer! lets leave it at that and move along!There are thousands of happy customers, you are the rare few i guess.
I think you guess wrong, although I agree with you that "you have no idea."
