Over the last months, I added a lot of new stuff to the CIJ printer project, but I could not find the right moment to report about it.

Because of that I will rather show you the current state of the project and add more build logs about the new features after that.

Here are some pictures of the current CIJ printer prototype:

Here you can see the latest printhead prototype:

I added a cable guide, a new 24V audio amplifier for driving the piezo and a laser sender / receiver to isolate the PC from the printer prototype:

Here you can see the new power supplys for all needed voltages (24V, 12V, 5V, ±12V, 312V and adjustable 3000V to 6000V):

I finally took the vacuum pump from my desktop to the printer frame and secured it in place with 4 springs to prevent the vibration from entering the frame and causing a lot of noise:

More build logs with more details about the added parts coming soon...
