    E500E or w124 Artwork request

    Hi all,

    My profession requires me to have my own large format plotter. I just got a new one which can print large banners etc in high quality images.

    As per the title if any members happen to have high quality images or soft copies of factory posters for example I would be most grateful for a copy - PM me for my email address etc

    Note that it is not my intention to use these images for commercial gain!! It is for personal use of my own plotter and to deck out my garage etc with E500E Posters

    PS I do already have a 500E fire and silk hardcopy

    Re: E500E or w124 Artwork request

    I bought a second large format plotter at the weekend which is a 12 ink model with non fade ink designed for plotting images and canvases. (Designjet Z3100ps Photo 44 inch)

    I may be able to offer board members w124 / E500E artwork early next year when I have all dialed in. The plotter requires some maintenance which I am carrying out now.

    If any members can provide a jpeg or other digital image file which is worthy of printing (and not available on google etc!!) will be entitled to a free hardcopy print!

    Re: E500E or w124 Artwork request

    Ok so after alot of work I have both plotters up and running 100% now. New print heads etc installed and fully serviced.

    Anyway, now I am ordering gloss photo paper and possibly other media such as canvas to move on to experimenting with borderless photo plots etc.

    I think if I were to provide w124 prints in the near future photo gloss rolled into a cardboard tube would be the most practical way to send posters to USA etc for a reasonable price.

    However, would anyone be interested in canvas prints?

    These could be supplied "raw" where you could mount to a frame yourself to keep shipping costs down or provided as full ready to go mounted canvases up to max A1 size but international shipping costs may be prohibitive in that scenario. Feedback or opinions on what might work best would be appreciated

    That's what I'm getting to grips with - what images might be available out there that would lend themselves to a canvas or photo print.

    The files need to be high quality due to the large format size. I have been testing with gloss paper and the machines are producing A1 quality plots.

    I am thinking that photo gloss prints will be the way to go in sizes such as A2. For reasons of shipping etc. People can them mount them in their own frames etc as they see fit.

    I'd be interested in canvas as well as gloss. I favor the 3rd link from the Daimler site. I don't know if the image quality is sufficient but there are many very nice photos on this forum.

    I suggest folks take their cars out to some suitable backgrounds and create some. I've been thinking about visiting MB headquarters here and asking to take some pictures in any possible suitable locations there. I don't know how this will be received.

    Re: E500E or w124 Artwork request

    Gents- thankyou for all of the feedback & links so far it is much appreciated. I will update where I am at now:
    I have 2x large format plotters. A Designjet T1100 which is a 6 ink machine – producing high quality plots. The picture below was plotted on it for example:

    20181115_202047.jpg

    BUT, I also have a recently acquired Designjet Z3100 large format Photo Plotter which has 11 Inks + Gloss enhancer. The trouble is the previous owner used it very little (It’s got 540 metres on it.... usually these have 20,000+ metres on them) and it was still on it’s original ink cartridges mostly. The worst thing is he left it powered off when not in use – big mistake. These machines must be left on at all times as they carry out their own Ink system maintenance cycles to prevent the heads from drying out. I leave mine on 365 days a year even though there is a little power consumption from it.

    On the Z3100 I installed all new Inks & Printheads when I got it because of this. Initially all was well but one issue cropped up after several prints because of the above issues. It wasn’t firing MK Ink after the new printhead ran dry:

    20181115_202212.jpg

    I bled the Ink line, flushed fresh Ink through it and got it to fire the MK ink again but I require a special tool to re-prime / fill the new MK printhead which is 2 or 3 weeks away. Really it will be simple when that tool arrives to resolve that one residual issue - which will make it fire MK ink properly. I could use the T1100 but really the Z3100 is a proper professional large format photo printer so I want to use it for W124 Artwork. They can operate with reduced printheads as they programme those out (within reason) but I want it 100% before I begin.

    The HP Designjet Z3100ps GP also uses the 12-ink HP Vivera pigment ink system to create a rich colour gamut and produce vibrant colours for exquisite museum-quality prints that resist fading for more than 200 years on a range of HP media.


    Additionally the HP 70 Gloss Enhancer and HP Quad-black ink set creates beautiful black and white prints and achieve truly neutral greys under different lighting conditions. The Gloss Enhancer and blacks also provide continuous tones, uniform gloss and rich blacks, making the HP Designjet Z3100ps GP ideal for high-quality proofing applications, in addition to fine art reproductions and photographs.

    Excellent update Joe.

    That test run with the “inferior” machine looks amazing! Can’t wait to have a source for these
