It will work just like any other dtg's capabilities...I have to say I operate a small shop in Jasper Georgia and this seems to me like something I would use with out question, Now for the serious question, Are you able to print on lighter colored t-shirts as well or only on white I been wondering because I was looking into this dtg option for awhile but not sure what all in entails and what the capabilities are. I will not pay $14,000 for a dtg printer I will continue to use my 4 color four platen manual press before I do that.
Great thank you for answering so quickly now I just need to get a hold of the plans, Another question I have I have two epson stylus pro 4800's do you think these will work for the project since they are not currently in use for anything other then printing heat transfers.
i explained those details a few post back if you built those items..this will be a walk in the park for you...I had no clue about this kind of printing until two days ago I don't go to trade shows or follow the normal trend changes because old habits are hard to break and I have been printing close to 1000 shirts a week for ten years so I wanted to know if there was an easier way and I think I may have found it. If you wouldn't mind when you decide to release the plans could you possibly P.M. me with details on whether or not your going to sell them or offer for free and where to get them I am greatly interested. I have already built several printer based machines like a cnc and an engraver. So I know I can handle a build like this if they are available.
well that explains it!!!!! lol
(hack a day) posted the printer vid on there site... thanks guys.. love your site glad you like the diydtg...
Good to hear about the nozzle checks with no clogs. Is that with white ink? I know my old 1400 gets a clog or two if I don't print at least every third day.not yet guys..
my day job takes alot of my time..
just got back home...my wifes looking into it i will check the status with her tommorow..its 2:30am here..
in the mean time i will start compiling the pics, files etc on the conversion its super simple..most difficult part is building the base itself it will take some time to do the detailed measurments parts list etc...im very detailed cant help it its my nature, and i do not want it to be subpar.. i dont like doing general build plans..I,m sure it will be appreciated that way however.. plus it saves the million questions if some one doesnt understand it
P.S NOZZLE CHECK PERFECT AFTER 5 DAYS GONE...PHEEEEW PRINTED WITH NO ISSUES
