Hi! I'm new to DTG and I've been a lurker of this forum for quite some time, but I want to thank @jgabby for his tutorials and posts!

With the help of this thread, I finally finished my "Epson R3000+UFO".
Here are some photos:











It doesn't show in the pictures but the DX4 dampers are connected to ink bags.
Everything seems to be working fine with the ink distribution, I'm not happy with the printings but that's a problem to be solved on another thread :)

Thanks... think I figured out the problem... I bought this:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/hig...32481061508.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.aYhe8V

Notice the title says both 3*2mm and 3*1.8mm... I didn't see any other 1.8mm tubing out there, so I assumed this was 2mm and the seller was just adding extra keywords to the title... but now I'll bet that .2mm is REAL and it's making a difference on the tapered dampers.

Anyway, this 8-way connected tubing works on the DX7 (head) dampers, because they aren't tapered... so I'll just go to Amazon and find some 2mm ID for the DX4 cart dampers, hopefully back on track.

I just hate spilling ink. ;)
I didn't want to take any risks with the bags and the tubing so i bought these:
Shut-Off Male: KENT Systems: Quick Couplings | Tube Fittings | Media Bags
Media Bag: KENT Systems: Quick Couplings | Tube Fittings | Media Bags
Tube: KENT Systems: Quick Couplings | Tube Fittings | Media Bags

To connect the dampers with the tubes I bought these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10-...32556340246.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.rORx3u

I'm in Portugal and everything from USA has to come through customs (which adds 23% and services to the final value) but the bags, the tubes and the shut-off male are definitely worth it.

Thanks for the DX7 damper links, I purchased from 2 different vendors and both cause my printhead to leak.

Also, I can't see the images in your post?
I don't know how to fix that... :/

You can see all the photos and videos related to this project here: https://goo.gl/photos/Kj9qMDgfHBTrijmB8

They're not in any special order and please ignore the end of all the videos :) I made them for friends and they always end the same way :)

I found out the problem with the images. It's a Google Photos issue, even if using a full url of an image Google will still block it unless it's me or someone I shared it with. It's a way of preventing bandwidth abuse. Sorry, didn't know about that.

The photos I posted before are now in attachment.
