I will start with a simple setup as a proof of concept:
A Raspberry Pi is used as controller and later substituted by a more embedded solution (which is yet to be determined). The printhead is moved by a linear slide, which is harvested from an old CD-ROM drive. The Digital Stamp is initially powered by an ATX or similar power supply. A small selection of ink cartridges is there to be tested.
- Easy to handle
- Local data storage
- Good printing speed & quality
- Real time clock or frequent time synchronization
