Re: 1430 build with complete kit

Thanks, that makes sense. Every time I try to print, the platen tries to move back past the limit switch and stalls. Then I get the out of paper error. If I press the 'paper' button on the panel, it does the same thing, but then I get the error code '0xF3 PS BS Drive Timeout Error'. When I run the ...

Much appreciated, as always, Andy. I'll try to change the encoder strip, and if need be the pf sensor, this Saturday. I'll keep you posted. Thanks, Dave I would concentrate on the encoder wheel, encoder wheel sensor and the ribbon cables for it. I had someone recently have the same error and there ...

No . . . I had this error once before when I first built my P600 and now know it was due to how I built my DTG Printer using the videos from T-Dozer. Bottom line is I didn't cover up the CR and encoder strip and really the whole printer while I hacked up the frame and cut out the CR rod. But cleani...

For the 1430 the feet don't match up to the holes on the printer base. Assuming the paper edge sensor is somewhere in the print head -- where does the platen need to be w.r.t. to the print head when I start the print. Right now it's just behind the print head. It needs to be behind. It's best to do...

Re: Vertical? Why does everyone go horizontal?

I think Lawson made a vertical pretreater ? Not sure if its still in production. Yes, that is the first pretreat machine I ever saw in person and that's when I realized the prices being charged for these machines are a joke. I don't see how moving a nozzle is harder/easier than moving a garment. Sp...

Re: how many ink-channels are enough for the DTG ?

You'll need 4 channels for the CMYK colors and 4 more for white. You could do 3 white but you'll lose speed trying to put down enough white ink.

There is at least 1 vertical machine I know of.

Gravity is going to be the drawback. You're now pulling the nozzle or shirt up and down against gravity.

Thanks for the design.
Just printed them as well as a centre mount in place of the alloy you have used.
Will be testing it out in the morning but so far its together, adjusted and seems solid enough.
If it works can you share your center mount file? That would be helpful
