There is room on the left of the head carriage for a 1/4inch addition. None on the right.

Re: OpenDtg DIY DTG with Motor Shield Question

Just got back from a long much needed vacation and back to the Grind! I just uploaded the code to my arduino uno and attached the shield.

UV Ink Cure lights

Anybody have a good source for UV cure lights?

Re: Overnight Ink Purge

Interesting... yes that complicates things a bit. Probably more than it is worth.

Re: Epson l800 Stepper motor + Arduino | HELP

The arduino can't go that fast. 

There shouldn't be a need to move that many times per movement of the encoder wheel.
