Do I have to remove the ink system to get to the rollers on the Epson 3800?

On the p800 I worked with they just clip on. I didn't even take mine apart I just popped them off. From what I read the 3880 is the old version of the P800, so if it's anything like the p800 it should only take a few minutes to pop them off without any type of disassembly needed.

I’m still working on the ink settings in EK. I only put two white ink in the P800 for the time being.    one thing to note, at least from my speculation, both the transfer film and the powder n

Got my p600 DTF converted. I've ran a few sheets of film through and so far so good.  I will do some videos and pictures soon. The p600 is WAY faster than the L1800 printers.

Hopefully end of this week or so. Depends on if it gets hung up in customs on the way in

Same with the p400... just reach in and pop them out.

No need to remove the ink system. It will be inconvenient, but you can remove them, watch the video from Hobby Print and pay attention to how the rollers are attached. do not be afraid you will succeed!

Will do.  Thanks

So if I was to use my DIY DTG P600 would I only have to change the inks to print DTG?

The reason I ask is I'm interesting in printing white and wonder if DTF is less harsh on the printhead.

Swapping the inks and making your printhead really close to the transfer paper should do the trick. I haven't any experience with how well the white works in terms of longtivity and maintenance compared to DTG ink. I'd assume it would take less maintenance and be more forgiving given DTF printers don't allow access to the bottom of the printhead. But I really don't know.  

Just curious if anyone has tried printing on the film using the DTF inks with their DTG P600? By reading through this topic it looks like it should work. Just wanted to know if anyone had any luck?

There are several examples on other model dtg printers out there in YouTube. So it works.

Yes we did our initial ink and film testing on a DTG.

I'm trying to get these wheels out of the p600 without taking it apart, is this possible because they are definitely not just popping out. They are somehow connected at the back, were you can't really see.

 

Any videos or more detailed info on thiis?

I pushed the front Manuel feed tray so it would pop out easier. Then you pop rollers off on one side, let the front tray open(lift) and it falls out. I used a flathead screwdriver on one, and my hands on the others. You just need to slip the black bracket off the metal bracket on the side facing the back of the printer.

Thx, managed to do it with your advice. I was actually trying to remove the whole metal thing which holds the wheels. Didn't realise they just pop out.

OPENDTG Cartridges are numbered CMYKWWWW but in Acro Rip there is no choice for this? Do I change the Cartridges to YMCKWWWW to match Acro Rip choice?

IF I remember right, back in the day when I first set-up, I had to change the cartridge order in my printer. I think that is why my printer is still currently set-up as YMCK+WWWW. I could be wrong, I honestly don't really remember. I do know that I had to change my carts around for Acro.
