Re: White Printing problems on P600

The printer is brand new and I never even ran the factory inks through it.  Today I have had some decent white printing but a nozzle check still shows less than half of the nozzles.  Either I should not rely on a nozzle check or I will get even more white when fixed.  There are two channels that ha...

Re: White Printing problems on P600

Regarding cleaning the white ink lines, I haven't used white as yet since from what I've read it requires diligent maintenance but I'm using EKPrint Studio which gives you the ability to clean individual lines.  I think if your going to use white you're going to need a program that can clean each li...

Re: OpenDTG Pre-Treater Build

Ok, so the speed potentiometer is, per the settings.h file set so lower is faster; meaning turning to the left increase speed, turning to the right slows speed or you could just rewire.  I wired both the Length and the Speed potentiometers the same way, however, I should have reversed the wiring on...

Re: OpenDTG Pre-Treater Build

Yes I am soaking the shirt!

I have the speed set to high on the potentiometer so unless I wired something up wrong how can I increase the speed?

Note I set the speed in/out on boot up to 350 and 300.  If I set it to the default of 200/200 the belt skipped.

Re: OpenDTG Pre-Treater Build

Here are a couple of videos showing my OpenDTG Pretreater build using the kit from OpenDTG.com, a rail system from OpenBuilds.com and PVC parts/bolts/screw/spacers from HomeDepot.  It is an easy build to complete and I'll try to put together a parts list since it did take some time to come up with t...

Re: P600 Ink Charging

I went through this exercise and you do need Wic Reset and a good amount of cleaner.   It helps to have 2 sets of refillable cartridges along with a chip resetter.  I filled one set of refillable cartridges with the cleaner and used Wic Reset to flush out the lines.   I then used my second set of re...

Re: OpenDTG Pre-Treater Build

Yes I need to post some videos and I will . . . promise!  I had some time today to adjust the setting since my platen at times was getting stuck and I had to give it little push to get it going.  Now I built a rather large platen for my pre treater:  18" wide by 24" long using 3/8 HDPE pla...

Re: P600 Error Code: 0xF6

I ran a test on an image that's 1.692" x 1.692" and it printed fine.  I'm using EKPrint on a P600 with the AIO board.

Re: Pay only $360 for EkPrint Studio directly from Eukon

Re: OpenDTG Pre-Treater Build

I adjusted the spray height to 7 1/2" from 8 /2" and that seems to be the perfect height for an 18" wide platen.  
Now on to building the spray enclosure.
