At 27C3 I gave a talk about inkjet printing PCB's. Over the last few months I've been working on reverse engineering the printhead from an Epson Stylus S21 to get it to print molten wax.

As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at CCC. Thanks to everyone who came to my talk, asked questions, gave me suggestions and feedback. 

Slides are available here , and.

Sealing heating block to print head

Hi -
I just watched your talk via the link from Make. Great work! I heard at least one good suggestion about using automotive instant gasket silicone. Did you try that yet?

Here is another suggestion: Silicone and polyurethane actually cure with moisture (usually gotten from the air). My first thought was to moisten a paper towel or cotton fabric and then coat it with silicone and apply it like tape. This should allow it to cure fully.

Then I remembered that people have been using corn starch as a moisture bearing additive to make casting silicone.
http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Your-Own-Sugru-Substitute/

I bet if you used a variant of the Oogoo method it would work well.

Please let me know if you try this and the result.

Chris

One more thing

I also just realized that another source of leaks could be the clamping setup. As I recall you had a thin metal plate with machine screws clamping the print head on. If the clamping plate is relatively flexible the gasket will tend to squish near the screws and leak between them. I know this from experience building a simple flat pump for dispensing cleaning fluid for a consumer product.

Ideally the clamping plate (and the mating heater block) would be perfectly flat and infinitely stiff. The other thing to consider is screw placement. Metal pipe flanges have a lot of screws because each screw's influence spreads out from the head in a 45deg cone. Thinner flange/plate = more screws.

Chris

Hi Chris, Thanks for your

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your input. I'm going to try to avoid clamps and gaskets, that was a solution born of pure time pressure and frustration! You're right about flexible clamping plates. Mine is actually under very little force, because the printhead itself is made from very thin materials and is easily crushed! I made it from spring steel (which was a pain in the arse), to get excellent rigidity in little thickness.

I haven't tried any other adhesives yet, but I'm convinced that the right silicone with the right deposition technique will solve the problem. Unfortunately, I'm working crazy hours on my paid projects at the moment to make up for all the printer development before 27C3!

Interesting fact re. moisture curing of silicone. Didn't know that.

Running flexcircuits through unmodified wax printer?

You made mention of doing flex circuits in an unmodified wax printer (Xerox Phaser) as the genesis of this project. Can you elaborate? If you just run an A4 sheet of something like Dupont Pyralux (http://www2.dupont.com/Pyralux/en_US/index.html) will it just work? Or does the wax ribbon -> drum -> copper process work poorly?

Personally I am more interested in flex circuits. If one could go to a copy center and print on Pyralux that would be pretty sweet. One could always laminate to FR4 afterward. Two-sided registration and vias are still up in the air of course.

Yep, you can just load raw

Yep, you can just load raw fpc laminate into a xerox phaser (must be a solid ink model, of course), and print. I had some slight pinholes, but fine for reasonably coarse stuff. See this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JWEoXa5izQ .

where to obtain the copper clad laminate?

I realized I have a great solid ink printer that I have daily access to! The only problem is, I can't seem to find any website that I can purchase a small amount of copper clad laminate that will work well in the printer. I contacted Dupoint to buy their copper clad paralux, but they are not fulfilling samples for months...

Do you know how I can obtain something similar to the Dupoint paralux? (anything that will work well in a standard solid ink printer)
Where did you get what you used in your printer to make those led shoes?

Your article inspired me to the point of desperation...

I was in an insane rush, so

I was in an insane rush, so I phoned around local FPC manufacturers, drove to one, and picked up a sample. They were very helpful.

However, I also phoned round some PCB materials suppliers, and it wasn't difficult to find one who would sell me a few sheets. They would even cut them to an arbitrary size.

Summary: phone. The internet is still not very good for finding industrial supplies.

Jeff- awesome talk! Met you when you visited LA to fix the Rihanna dress and stopped by Nullspace. What dissuaded you from working further with the xerox phaser technology? Seems they are already using wax, and that it would be simpler to adapt that than to use the epson heads?

Hey Stan, Good to hear from

Hey Stan,

Good to hear from you! The xerox heads are indeed designed for printing wax, which is very helpful, but they are extremely expensive. A new xerox head is about £600, whereas I can buy a whole brand new Epson printer for £30!

I was interested in creating something that would be replicable, and possibly even mass producible one day.

Amazing :P

Hey Jeff,
I'm amazed by your work, congratulations on your achievement and progress so far :P
Your presentation has actually helped me out a lot as I'm planning on building a Powder based 3D printer using a Epsom Ink jet printer.

I'm a little bit luckier than you hardware wise as the service manual for my printer (Epsom Stylus c63) comes with a complete Schematic of the motherboard for the printer, however the print head remained a mystery to me.
I never knew that so much information can be found in patents! Especially info that can't be found anywhere else. Thankfully the one you referenced (US6758544) gave me the exact information I needed to move forward with driving the print head with my own microcontroller. the good news is that the signals (COM, LAT, CH, SIBK, SICL and CK) have already been identified in the schematic from the service manual.

I really want to thank you so much for all of this information, you have no idea how much of a big help this is to me.
Keep up the good work!

Cheers
Roman
