    Hello there,

    I was trying to print on a 1mm thick material that is much smaller than A4 paper; about 10 cm x 25 cm. Since the paper feeder does not allow such a thickness I disassembled the printer trying to figure out a way to print on that thickness.

    I was not able to find a way although I thought of releasing a bit or removing the plastic strips that press on the roller since the paper goes between those plastic strips and the roller. But without the plastic strips the roller will not turn/revolve.

    Is there a way to print on such thickness without having to go to the direct-to -garment method in which I have to do modifications to the printer?

    Also, where does that part go? a picture is attached.

    A million thanks if you can help.

    best regards,
    Hani

    Hi ‘Spider Zone, its best when taking a printer apart to take as many photos as possible of the process, and that way it’s easier to find your way back.

    I sorry you didn’t do that when you first starting out on your quest to take your printer apart, but you now know to do that for the future, it is possible that some member here will have a similar printer to your and will help you with an explanation...
    Don't give up hope... ;)

    Hi 'The Hat', thank you for your reply. I have taken over a 100 photos but obviously I missed on some.
    thanks again

    I'm running a L300, but did not take one apart - didn't have a reason to so I don't have an idea where it normally sits. I think it's not just the rollers to move such a thick material but the platen gap is not adjustable to cover such thickness either. Larger printers like the P600/r3000 have some adjustment capability for the paper thickness to my knowledge.
