Anyone here thinking about fitting an airbrush? How about a multi pen plotter tool?
I looked into the possibilities of inkjet printing, but it seems there is only the inkshield, which seems very limited.
I would like to be able to print t-shirts, large wall art, technical diagrams.
Also thinking of cabinet making, being able to route the panels and fixing holes, then airbrush the paint and perhaps a lacquer coat would be very cool.
Edit: further thoughts on this.
See this instructable. Contains some useful info about dye/paint, a diy airbrush idea in there.
It looks like the dye has crept beyond the boundary of the stencil, which in this case creates a nice effect. This got me thinking back to a batique demo I saw years ago. How about printing a thin plastic barrier around the stencil line?September 7, 2016 at 1:45 am #17359
I have found a better way to do t-shirts – t-shirt vinyl, which I did not know existed.
Maybe better to just cut this stuff with a drag knife than try to air brush fabric.September 7, 2016 at 8:28 am #17375
I’ll keep my ramblings to this thread..
This Kickstarter project is thought provoking – a kind of multi tool machine with the tools ready to go, minus the routing / milling capability.
Actually an interesting idea to make a cartesian robot and not claim it is rigid enough to route with. Looks like an expensive MPCNC!
It does mention something called a masking fluid, which I looked into, and it turns out for fabric you use something called a resist
However, there is a video on the Tooli page which shows that airbrushing with stencils can create sharp linesSeptember 7, 2016 at 9:13 am #17377
I used to make shirts with that vinyl, it’s pretty easy.
