Project Log 8: Finally some printers

A project log for Converting Inkjet printers into FDM 3D printers

Inkjets could be used as an FDM Resin 3D printer by replacing the ink by other fluids and adding a Z axis.

Project Log 8:

21:06 hours - Brasilia Timezone - 27 of September

I finally got some mother-hecking inkjet printers.

It is broken, but I don't know for which extent, but it is a printer after all.

And the best part is that maybe I will be able to get another printer tomorrow.

Well, for some reason this photo had a blue-greenish colour over it.

I don't know which number series this is, but I know it is an HP printer.

Well... Oof.
I don't know if you can see on this image, but the finger is under an "Ink Ribbon". These were used on typewriters and electronic typewriters. So I don't know if this is a printer or a typewriter (or both).
So the "Oof" is because this is a fricking dinosaur.

And for what I heard, both printers are working somehow. I will disassemble them tomorrow and see what I can do with this dinosaur.

Now I have to juggle two projects at once, ugh... My anxious impulsive self that always makes my own life harder...
