How to Use the Inkjet Laser to Make a Papercraft Inkjet printer from a Microcontroller

The inkjet is a device used to print and create micro-sized paper sculptures.

But how do you make a inkjet with just a microcontroller?

In this article, we’ll learn how to create a micro-controller based inkjet that works on a standard Arduino microcontroller.

We’ll use the Arduino IDE to develop a simple inkjet sketch and then use the microcontroller to control the laser.

Then we’ll see how to convert that sketch into a working inkjet using the Arduino’s Serial Monitor and an Arduino Pro Mini.
