  4. I took a 3”x4” cart and attached a printer, shaker, the powder thing you see, roller and a hot plate to make an auto dtf machine. So far it’s working well, just gotta fine tune things to make it almost fully automatic. My main issues are the last transfers printed, so I’m going to add a following blank sheet length just like in the beginning. That and some way to easily recollect the powder, OR some way to prevent the film from lifting up from the bottom of that powder pan, so the powder stays in the roll of the film indefinitely. Still deciding on that. It has a vent, to suck fume
  5. Yea, I haven’t noticed any issues with it yet with static. I think rev 2 will be a bit taller, and a bit less wide, I was making it to fit the 13” and 17” printer sizes, just in case I wanted to go with a p800 down the road.

  6. Wow, that looks nice. About static electricity, it mostly accures when I screenprint tranfers, (when a rubber squegie runs over the mech and the print lands on plastic sheets, it builds up static electricity).
  7. You are satisfied with the print quality and maintenance with Epson xp 15010 DTF printing.
  8. I'm not aware of one, you just reach in and pull out the "pizza" rollers, and from there make an output tray, or finagle something together with the OEM paper tray. You remove the rollers that would hold the paper down in the the front. Other than that, that's it unless you want to add a waste bottle.
  9. the P700/P900 wouldn't be of any use yet, chipless or refillables haven't been made for them yet.
  10. hi do have a video how i can convert p600 to DTF thank you tihs is my email labnezeit@gmail.com
  11. acrorip v10 supported XP 15000, P700, P900. Anyone here already convert these models to DTF printer, please advise and share your experiences? Thank you
  12. Hi I to was going to configure the way you have said and for the life of me cant see why it would not work but other people have suggested that you change the printer driver to the older model R3000 I will try later on today and let you know the results. this is the how the posts on here said to it and apparently works regards clive
  13. Yesterday I finaly got the last things I ordered from China delivered, so today I started experimenting with DTF-printouts. Since this is just a "test spin" to see how my customers here in Sweden react to DTF-transfers I´m only using a L1800 with AcroRip for now. My first print was a parrot with my companylogo and that turned out great at the first print. I first traced the parrotphoto in Photoshop, imported the result in Illustrator and placed my vectorbased logo on top of the parrot, saved the result as PDF, (the print looks a lot better IRL than on the photo). My second print was a bi
  14. Hey guys, Recently I'm having trouble with EKPrint, I'm trying to print a design that contains in some parts really fine white lines and because of the choke the printer is not printing them and when I reduce or disable the choke the white under base just come out of the design. Does anybody know how solve this problem?
  15. One side is printable, the other isn’t. It takes very little ink, I use medium at 50% ink for both cmyk and white, if I remember correctly.
  16. I have setup and have the color channels correct I can print to plain paper and it looks fine. But when I try to print to film it shears terribly. Is there one side that should be up? Also, when I do get logos to print is very wet and smears I have it set to level 1 and light and logo.
  17. You could use anything, foam board, wood, acrylic, steel, I mean that’s the part where you do whatever you want. I didn’t even need an output tray tho, the stock tray worked for me.
  18. Not the flatbed but the output tray. I see some say a foam board.

    I just joined the forum so I'm pretty lost in this topic. I hope you won't mind to indulge me - how does the print quality compare to the likes of GTX Pro? Any idea? Cheers
  20. Any printer with a bulk ink system will suffer the same issue, Which is ink settling. Just do a head clean or two and it should be fine, however, the longer it sits, the more buildup you'll get. If you want to avoid wasted ink, use a printer with ink carts, like the P400. Carts sit directly on the head. Once your done printing, load cleaning carts, do one head clean or two and it can sit as long as you want. When you are ready to print again, load ink carts, do a head clean. The p400 uses next to no ink on the head cleans, so ink waste is next to nothing and you always get perfect print
  21. I guess you could print on film with eco solvent ink, that would technically be Direct To Film. But I would also assume that’s as far as you would get. DTF ink/film is a must for DTF transfer printing. if you want to make a transfer/ t shirt business, it’s going to cost some money. I’d go with the xp-15000($350), p400 ($500)or p800($600). then you’ll need roughly $600 in materials and a way to cure them. works great. Id rather that than tear apart a perfectly fine ( and worth more) solvent printer. However, if you do get it working, please share the resu
  22. this technology can use only with dtf ink? the original epson eco solvent ink not possible?
  23. Earlier
  24. Hello, I have a P800 and I want to use DTF. I read that the P800 has a pressurized ink system, so I have to print every day, otherwise there will be white ink separating in the lines. I plan to print 1-2 times a week. Maybe L1800? Using L1800 ink can be pumped with a syringe. Is L1800 better than P800 for a beginner? Can I use the P800 if I print infrequently?
