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

Re: 0xF3 Error on P600

So why is it that I can run a print purge or a nozzle check and not have a problem but when I try to print color bars from EKPrint Studio I get an 0xF3 error. You would think for the number of times I have run a print purge/nozzle check I would get at least one 0xF3 error. Does the encoder not come...

Its not that hard of a build, Your pretreater kit from the store is a huge step forward for people wanting to make something like this. ;)
Did you make a frame in the inside with aluminum extrusions?

Just to be sure we're on the same page - the side with the motor is the back. When I plug in my printer, the tray is at the front, it moves to towards the motor and stops just short of the limit switch and does not move to the front again. If I switch the wiring on my limit switch, then the motor m...

You actually want to plug it in with the platen in the front. It will go back in and then to the front. Then turn the Epson on. If the platen is in the back when you turn the epson on you'll have issues. To print push the platen in button to send the platen to the back. Then just print to it like a ...
