A quick preview of my OpenDTG Pretreat machine.

The main goals where to make it as compact as possible and affordable.

I'll post more pictures and videos soon. Doing some final touchups.

Its the best system, I have used it on the last pretreater and this newer one. Do you make the plates on your CNC?

Yes, I used the CNC for all of this. If I'm doing larger parts or a lot of something I use a waterjet. It's expensive but 10x faster.

Here's a couple pictures.

It's a pretty basic unit.

24 inches by 24 inches

My shop is kind of a mess.
