Common Questions

Can it print on dark t-shirts ?
A: Yes, you just need an A3 printer with 6 cartridges and a RIP Software like EKprint or Acrorip!

Is this updated ?
A: Yes! This e-book was updated awhile ago and you still get online support if you need assistance.

Is it difficult ?
A: It depends on the person’s skill, for some people it will be really easy and while others might need some assistance, but we’re here to help so don’t worry.

Is this friction or belt system ?
A: Friction. This project is aimed in creating the cheapest DTG using minimal parts so we will only use the parts inside the printer and some woods. You’re free to upgrade as you wish once complete.

    I have a Epson L310. Does this guide cover this printer?
    I don’t have commercial purposes. I just need A4 moels.

    • Alienbunker Staff

      Hello Choi,
      Thanks for your comment!

      Unfortunately the eBook is not compatible because it’s an A4 printer and the base dimension, sensors and mainboard is different so there’s no way to use this plan for your model. Sorry about that.

      Of course you can use this plans to learn how a DTG works and make your own plans for your printer.
      Please let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

      Yes! The Epson 1430 is fully compatible with our eBook and it’s the most frequent used printer for conversion. If you have any other question feel free to message us.

    Hi. Any plans for a DTS guide not just DTG or how hard it will be to add motorized table bed. Dunno for a product up to 10cm thickness. In your guide, can I level a bed up or down, what is maximal thickness?

    I see most China made DTS machine are based on 4880 Epson model. Do you think that I can use your guide to transform A2 printer? Thanks.

    • Alienbunker Staff

      Hello Zuio,
      Thanks for your comment!

      It’s possible to use the current A3 DTG printers to print on materials with thickness up to 13cm. The bed level can be adjusted if you use a Laboratory Scissor Jack.
      Unfortunately it’s not possible to convert A2 printers because the table would have to bed huge and pretty heavy, I doubt the DC motor would be able to handle it. The only way would be using a motorized table with stepper motor but that would require a lot of modification and extra hardware parts.

      Please let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

    I’ve just bought and download the plans. They are very well explained and seems anyone can manage building it. I have just one question: in my country, the only printers I can get are the 1410 and the R2000. Which one would you reccomend? I’m hopping using it with commercial pourpose. Thanks a Lot!

    • Alienbunker Staff

      Hello Juan,

      If it’s for commercial purpose then I recommend Epson R2000.
      It’s the same building process as the other models.

      If you need any assistance feel free to e-mail us 🙂

      Kindly regards.

    Do you have details DTG building plans with Video for T60 & R230 Epson Printer?. I have few printers with me and I wish to convert them to avoid buying new one.
    Are you also giving RIP software?

    • Alienbunker Staff

      Dear Deepka,
      Thanks for your comment!

      Unfortunately we do not have any plans for T60 or R230. The reason is because both of those printers are A4 models and the quality output is not as good as A3 printers.
      Although they’re not hard to convert since it has less sensors to deal with but if you’re planning on doing it for commercial purposes I don’t recommend it.

      Please let me know if you have any other question.
      Kindly regards.

    Im just wondering this part, in your new version on page cover & description it says, assuming that you already disassemble epson etc.. does it mean that you just referring to outer cover or inside the parts/ components? I’m planning to buy this, but got little stuck with this thought. can you please clarify?

    • Alienbunker Staff

      Hello Sheriy
      Thanks for your comment!

      I’m referring to the outer case and some interior parts but with the newer version available now it covers most parts now.
      There’s a free disassembling guide available at:
      It covers 80% of the process and the e-book covers the remaining parts.

      You will get online support so if you run into any problem just contact me 🙂
      Let me know if you have any other question.

      Kindly regards

    do you have a guild on how to do it to the epson c88+

    • Alienbunker Staff

      Hello Joshua,
      Thanks for your comment!

      Unfortunately no. You may have seen a video on YouTube in our channel of C88+ DTG but I never made any plans for it.
      The reason is mostly because it’s very unreliable and performance is very poor comparing to A3 models.

      If you need a DIY DTG you need an A3 model, it’s faster and has a great performance comparing with A4.
      Let me know if there’s anything I can help you with.
