    We’ve tried various 3rd party ink in our Mimakis over the years, and have had problems with all of them. Blocked nozzles, complete ink channels dropping out, dampers replaced, and in 2 cases, head replacements were required. Once we swapped back to OEM ink, none of these problems re-occurred.

    I know that you will get some replies saying that people have been running 3rd party for years with no problems. Well, if that’s the case, then they have been lucky, because one day, it will happen.

    Not worth the risk in my opinion. Stick to OEM, and increase prices slightly to compensate.
