  1. I have to to say that this is the #1 tip for anyone who wants to get into DTF. If you want to print QUALITY transfers, there's a lot to learn, and even with a nice cheap starter printer like the XP-15000, you'll still need to invest around another $1,200 in RIP and supplies to have any hope of learning the ropes. You can only read so much before you just have to dive and and learn from trial and error. DTF is not a turn key operation. You have to enjoy a challenge, have some tech skills and most of all have determination.

  2. I did white drop medium level 1 50 density 1440x1440 resolution i do mixed, because I don’t want a solid white layer. underbase choke varies by design, I do between 2-10. one pass enables both layers to print, enhanced is bi-directional and should be checked, it prints twice as fast.

  3. Never tried, from my understanding only EKprint supports it at this moment. It’s what I use anyway.

  4. Yes, Do the firmware downgrade, it will hang and freeze. Then activate it with the chipless key, once you do, it will generate a different KEY that you save as a back-up key. It's the same firmware, it's not chipless until you buy it, and activate it. If you have the wrong firmware, use the key again after you fixed it. As long as you save the back-up key the activation program gives you, you can run the chipless activation 100 times on the same printer, it doesn't matter. So, even if it was accidental the wrong firmware, it doesn't hurt/risk anything as long as you save the

  5. I don’t think it matters, I’ve used refurbs and new/used. Only issue I’ve had was with the P800 paper tray on the refurb units recently. It’s all up to you though. I have one for sale, XP 15000- new refurb with 1 year Epson warranty. $375 shipped. Doesn’t include oem ink, but can include a set of refillable ink carts WITHOUT chips( needs to be made Chipless anyway). Still wrapped from Epson. it’s a current gen printer, so I’m sure you’ll be able to find out though, unlike me and my P400’s. Lol.

  6. It’s up to you, the 15000 works, but is new to the game and has quirks. For low volume printing, it would work fine given your technically inclined. the L1800 is a tried and tested printer, quite a few have them. the p400 is another great option for lower volume users, even high volume users who don’t want to deal with ink settling issues ( white ink is your enemy) then the p800/p600 for people who will print a lot. there are others, older machines. The p400/p600/p800 all read full inks always, the 15000 doesn’t and needs reset. personally I roll print an

  7. Gotta change the settings. It auto selects 3 passes for the underbase. Start out with 70 percent color and 70 percent white( and 50 percent white under base) and work from there. All single pass, 1440x1440.

  8. I use the p400, even when I print hundreds a day to avoid any ink settling issues or any of that crap. I have all the other models people use the most and still choose the p400 for that singular reason. if you seen a p800 available at that price, it isn’t available any longer.

  9. For some reason the 2manuals site has the correct XP-15000 firmware on the main firmware page, but the wrong one on the directions page. I had the same problem until I realized the main firmware page was a different firmware. The one worked perfect.

  10. get the one from chiplesssolutions.com The other one is outdated and will make your printer print blank pages. I had this issue, but when I put the right firmware it worked perfectly!

  12. Another update: First print after a ton of tests and tweaking. Still need to tweak ink setting, but I'm almost there. This is the logo for my arcade (which I had to close due to the Rona). I designed the logo 7 years ago. It's pretty awesome to 100% design and print my own shirts! I'm getting holes that I think are due to my underwhite layer being too think and absorbing too much powder. Then when I flick the film, chunks of completely absorbed white ink are coming off and leaving blank spots. The close up of the "A" shows a hole from my above theory. The other close up

  13. It won’t spit the film out at all when resetting the cartridges. Really simple. You type in how much gap you want between each one, from .25 inches up to around 5” and it sets the gap that much between them in EKprint.

  14. So, while the XP-15000 can technically roll print, since it’s not “ native” it spits the film out when you replace the ink carts. for example, in the p400, they always read full. with this printer, they read full and count down normally ( without chips). So every 20-25 prints or whatever uses up one cartridge, it will spit the roll of film out for you to change the “ cartridge”. as for everyone’s “ paper jam” issue and loading issues, that’s Epson, easily avoided. It’s not actually a paper jam, at least in my case. so, at current, if you roll print less than 20 pr

  15. Cleaner carts are just carts filled with solution, correct. I sell my OEM inks, and it's a great way to verify the machine works before loading inks in there and voiding the warranty. If they find white ink anywhere, usually they'll deny you, good luck!
