Mechanical Improvements

Much has happened since my last blog post since, though published only minutes ago, it was written a few days back. This lag between life and blog is largely the fault of flickrfs.

New fuser unit and first etch!

Fortunately the search for a new fuser unit was short. I asked around campus for old laser printers, and in discussion with the ECS helpdesk people it transpired that they had a brand new fuser unit on the shelf that they were never going to use.

PCB Printer Progress

On monday evening I connected up the various parts of the printer and managed to get it to print for the first time since it was dismantled.

The printer is bristling with sensors to check that the various hatches are installed, the cartridge is in, paper isn't jammed, and so on. They all have to be fooled correctly to get it to print.
