Finally all three major components – the hacked and reconfigured inkjet printer, the geared stepper motors assembly, and Windows 7 and RIP software – are working together. It is actually beautiful to see.

Pictured above are a few images of the disassembled inkjet printer. This whole process from beginning to end has taken about five months. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my friend David, who guided me through all the steps of figuring out how to hack, and completely reconfigure the inkjet printer. I hope to upload a video and “how-to-manual” of all the steps in the process.
