Re: A4 printers

Thank you Andy, they have R230 printers in them which do not have encoder wheels. The board seems to drive a stepping motor. Capping station on these is independent of the paper feed shaft. I may just have a go at wiring up one of these R230's.

A4 printers

I have nearly completed my a3 R1400 build and already looking at my next project. I have three old A4 dtg printers that I would like to convert to use the Arduino. Does anyone know if there are any A4 printers that are compatable with the code, sort of a mini r1400?

Re: Stepper motor

I've tried switching the wires and it just changes the platen direction too. Can I change the code in the Open DTG Arduino code to set the ...

Re: Why I can't see pictures of others users?

I paid $20 to join and then bought a Sheild. Worth every penny. I own a forum, not DTG, with over 35,000 members and the time and money it costs to hold it all together is immense.  Andy you are doing a great job, please do not be put off by people moaning, I think it is only fair that you charge a ...

Epson R230

I have a A4 Epson R230 dtg printer with a blown controller. I'm wondering if this could be driven with an arduino and the open dtg code, has anyone any ever tried with this printer?
