Michatroniker Posted September 23, 2022 Share Posted September 23, 2022 Hey guys, I'm new in the DTF world and trying to get into So I have some issues and hope someone of you maybe can help me out a little ( Sorry that some picture are so big, I dont know how to make them smaller ) My Setup: L1800 with CADlink PET film, paint, powder and ICC profile are from the same manufacture / supplier 1. Problem - Unclean Colors I cant get solid colors... They are always "unclean" ( I dont know how to describe that ) As you can see in the picture, there are small white/blue/dark lines but not a solid blue I tried so much but cant get a solid color. ( I tried head cleans, other ICC profiles, pictures with very high resolution, different choke and any other setting in cadlink.. ) Is it normal for DTF or am I doing something wrong here? 2. Problem - Powdering after print After my print is done, I put some powder on it. But the thing is, my print is getting "dirty" after I put the powder right after.. I tried to wait 3-5 minutes before I put the powder on it and it seems to solve the problem. but why dosnt it work right after the print, is that normal? 3. Problem - Glossiness I would like to have my prints matt. I saw a post from @johnson4 about glossy PET films.( https://www.opendtg.com/topic/2645-is-it-driving-anyone-else-crazy/)The thing is, after I did my first press - my print is matt After the second press, its getting glossy. So I tried to do the second press with silicon paper instead of teflon paper. As you maybe can see it in the picture, it isnt that glossy anymore (also got a better feel) So I would like to know if somebody knows other good materials to get a matt finish Or do I just have to change my teflon paper? Are there different types of it? Or is my PET film just one of that glossy types and I need matt PET film sheets? I hope someone of you can help me out a little Kind regards Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
