Re: IJ35C Beware

I stopped using IJ35c a few years ago, it shrinks way to much.

In fact I am done with 3m in general. Have been for 2 years, never been happier. :)

Re: No more Summa printers?

I still run mine and it prints like a champ... Avery's color change vinyl prints incredibly well. Summa just didn't market it right, that and the lack of info/issues and how to correct them just wasn't there. No one had answers. I did my best trying to cure some of that here with DG.

https://www.summa.eu/en-us/summa-story

EU link

https://www.summa.eu/en/summa-story

Re: DC3 noob in need of help again.

Re: New to thermal print 3M 5100???

Welcome, I have no experience with 5100, but as far as reflective goes I have good results with Nikkalite 48000 Flexible Engineer Grade Reflective. Mind you it's old school reflective with a very aggressive adhesive. What I have been printing on as of late is Avery Color Change films mostly SW900 Wh...

Re: Alignment issue

Summa I think is done with their printers. My DC3 is now a 700 lb paper weight.

I have even had issues getting GOOD support for their cutters now.

Sad..

Re: Technical info about DC4sx

I have changed the head 3 times. - easy.
I have replaced the hard drive also. ( I now keep a copy of it, summa wants a ridiculous amount of money for it. )

Never had any other issues.

Re: Double print

What are you doing your design work in?

I am pretty sure you can print multiple layers using corel and the overprint option.
