Homebrew laser printer


Not your ordinary laser printer –

A few years back a good friend of my said to me “I have this great idea, lets mount a paint ball gun on an X,Y turret and make a huge inkjet printer!” After a little research we found that it had already been done… (and the time that it has taken me to get this published the MythBusters have done it as well, search youtube)

Eventually we setteled on a servo driven mirror to aim laser light at photo paper to create a “Laser Printer”

The project is currently still in progess after a servo failed during calibration – work so far is still quite sweet. LaserProject
