UV printer - A3 or A4? L805 or R1800

Recommended Posts

Hi there guys. Just made my introduction in the forum and would like to have  few insights. I've been reading a lot of threads here in the last few days but there are still a few doubts left.

For the printers I have the following available:

A4 - EPSON L805
A3 - EPSON 1400
A3 - EPSON R1800

I would prefer the A4 size as that would make the build itself a lot cheaper. Also A4 size is more than enough for my needs, I will print directly on railroad models (same as a phone case). From what I could gather around the forum the L805 seems to miss the encoder wheel which makes the adaptation harder. I ordered the Arduino UNO and the shield from OpenDTG and it would be perfect if I could adapt this kit to the L805, any help?

Second question regards the UV leds and curing, I need precision but usually a print of one of my models just takes 3-5 minutes and I only print around 100 a month so I think water cooling would be a little overkill. What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance for any help.
