As my username suggests I'm looking at building a DTG printer, then adding a UV LED and UV ink (including white ink) so we can print directly on wood.
Of course, the first step to that, is making the DTG printer
My day job is designing circuit boards, mainly for PICs and 8051s, and writing the embedded C to run them. I haven't done any Arduino stuff yet, so that should be fun.
From what I've gathered, once the printer is stripped down and the base & platen are built, your AIO card will then control a stepper motor to move the platen, as well as mimic other signals to the printer, correct? We're looking at modifying an R3000 to start with.
Thanks for the resources here. This should be fun.
