hello pharmacist,
as mentioned above the target file in the 480target.zip contains many more colors than 480 - most likely as the sideeffect from your stretching as mentioned.
Could you post a plain 480 color target tiff file please , with no further modifications to it , with 480 colors, LZW compression possible, 3x8 bit color depth only , in a zip file here since tiff files are not supported. I was trying to place the color points into the RGB or Lab color space but there are just too many colors - 16000 or more as shown above. I still try to see where different programs place the color points in their target files.

ISF, it would be quicker and more precise to create you own target image from scratch using Pharmacists batch file. It requires only one Argyll command line or two if you wish to print it out.

You can just make your own target using the targen command. Despite the extra colors introduced by the stretching, the resulting reading doesn't have any effects on the produced profiles. Many have used my target and the results are really good.

I keep an eye on these three:

https://3dprinter.sindoh.com/
https://eu.kodama3d.com/collections/trinus/products/trinus-3d-printer
http://www.spiderbot.eu/en/products/printer-kits-pb/spiderbot-v2-1-pro-kit.html

There are version of spiderbot that are overpriced as much as any stratasys printer. The Chinese or Taiwan companies will take over other manufacturers in the long run, and quality filament does cost more. So Sindoh printer with cartridge system does not sound so bad. After all if it (or any locked printer) is so bad and you must use third party filament then stashing some few hundred euros and custom hack can be had on any russian forums.

The problem is reliable hardware and replacement parts. Assembly quality too matters. So kit only printers are not the way to go imho.
