Hello Guys ,
first thanks to Andy for this Forum :)

This my firsts project diy dtg an epson 1400 in friction mode with alumium; i  would share it since i posted video, but never had time to do it.
So i ll try to put some infos days after days

First this what i used :

Aluminium L bacrket 30 mm (For the platen)
Aluminium square 100*100 mm  Lenght 1000 mm (Support the printer)
aCuride rails 600mm (mooving platen)
Shaft Guide Support Brackets (support of bearing)
Bearing 8 X 16 X 5Mm  (for the original paper shaft)
Labjack for height adjustement

Instead of the paper sensor i used the APG SENSOR but wiring and connection should be changed

i ll be back for more information

Very nice build. I'm extremely impressed with the white ink coverage you're getting out of a 1400.

thanks it was with refillable cartridge not CIss and about 160% of white ink on Acrorip
Resolution 2880/1440 dpi
and good pretreatment


I do prefer Acrorip than ekprint

I've seen AcroRIP all over alibaba and aliexpress.com. 

Do you know who actually makes it? It would be nice to buy from the source and know you're getting a clean copy.
