Arduino printer

Description

2D printer made out of Arduino Pro Micro ($5USD on ebay), 2 floppy drives (as motor controllers) and 2 scanner beds.
For now drawing by simple algorithms.

Stage

Prototype - lets call it version 0.1

Features

  • 2D but:
    • single line drawing from start to the end
    • grid drawing - everything is drawn as line in either X or Y axis (other lines are transformed by Bresenham's line algorithm )

ToDo:

  • ability to import vector images
  • controlled 3rd axis
  • use extruder/cutter instead if fix
