Re: Hacking the Xaar 128 printhead

Teensy have enough pins. If you need more, Arduino Due are an option (ARM CPU). Xaar heads use a serial protocol and can be daisy-chained. If you can be fast enough, you can control as many heads as you wish with the same control pins.

Re: Hacking the Xaar 128 printhead

I have only tried solvent based ink, yes. Tritron V Photon black is a suggestion from the Xaar ink recommendation list specifically for the 128, but who knows if that list is correct. This is the only UV ink mentioned there. Water based ink fails for me completely. It took me forever to find that ou...

Re: color 3dp slicer software

I wrote a slicer that can do just that. It is by no means finished, and the current version has the texture stuff disabled because I was trying to control a mixing FDM printer first, and then finish the texture stuff.
