Epson XP 15000 DTF conversion


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

I've converted our xp-1500 and have AcroRip working.  I'm struggling with the film sheets being detected.  More times than not I will only get a partial print right down the center.  If i put a normal piece of paper in, AcropRip will print just fine and not think twice.  Is there a sensor I need to block off somewhere?

 

Thank

There is a sensor but you can’t block it. It senses the paper width. Make sure that’s off in acro, if it still does it you’ll need a sticker/white strip at the beginning of each sheet the entire length of the film. 
 

an alternative is to buy rolls and make a roll adapter, I used EKprint so you can make it roll print, and simply cut off each print when it’s done and load it once. You could also just cut long “sheets” from a roll and do the same without the diy  roll adapter.

I want to mention you can’t “roll” print with acro unless you buy/find some compatible roll print software.

Is that just for the xp-15000 or in general?  We are looking at a p400 for a secondary.

I mentioned in the earlier post EKprint allows you to roll print with all of their supported printers, including the 15000. Acro doesn’t have that option, at least, version 9.xx doesn’t.
