DIY T-Shirt printing? No Problem! (almost)

Starting to lift the outsets of the film on the medium...

After a long dry season of posts here on blog.kanojo.de i proudly announce yet another garage-tinkering-tutorial: How to print t-shirts yourself. While this may not sound special or new at all, the technique we’ve chosen required a lot of fine tuning to yield *PROFESSIONAL* (and by that i mean really really REALLY good) results. So i considered it worth sharing.

 

While i must admit that i make a equipment-assumption that may not be the case for most, you can work your way around it. What i’m talking about is that recently a cutting plotter moved into this household. A cutting-plotter is almost like a normal plotter – except that it doesn’t paint or print the paths (read: vector-files) you give it, but cuts. For those who don’t know what a plotter is – imagine a printer that is able to print on a infinitely long roll of paper and doesn’t print per line, but prints a arbitrary path (e.g. a sphere, bezier curve, etc.) at a time.

Mahjongg madness, DIY Mahjongg table

Okay, so what do we have here? As you may know from previous posts or the tag-cloud we are quite into the game of Mahjongg, playing Riichi rules. What we’ve been missing all the time was a fantastic automatic mahjongg table. Of course it is much too expensive and huge – on top of that those beasts of machanics engeneering need frequend service – which isn’t available in Europe (it seems like this one was a rumor and is not true for the ones linked above…). So we set out to build one Ourselves (of course no automatic one as we are no team of engeneers with a fully equipped work shop). Read on for details and building instructions.
