I'll jump on this thread, since my topic is similar to "misc questions"
I just received all my stuff and set up the printer with Cone inks from the start. All seems well.
My question is relating to the removable side panel on the carts. Since it is ribbed it obscures the walls of the ink well, and makes it difficult to see trapped air at the top. By removing it, the exact fill level can be easily seen. Is there a point to the plastic wall, besides protecting the fragile membrane? Could I remove the wall permanently with no issues?
The 38xx carts also have a sidewall, but since they are pressurized, I assume that the wall is more structural, to keep the membrane from bulging out.
