It's only a single line, single layer test but it's printing. The paper sensor was replaced with a pic12f675 monitoring the paper feed encoder. So it's as easy as clicking print.

Now time to work on the layering and multi-line. I'm considering making the lines overlap and correct for it in software, as this will allow more ink to be transferred to the powder.
