Check out this creative tutorial from Robson Couto on instructables and learn how to build your own Dot Matrix Printer using an arduino!

Hey!

Some time ago while going through the pages here in Instructables, something catch my attention, a printer made of a CD reader, and i was amazed.

I thought: “This is incredible, I have to make one!”

I know that these kind of projects don’t always receive a “I made it”, because of its degree of difficulty, so i tried to make mine easier.

This project was started more than a year ago, because of the lack of time i could only work in it while on college recess, but this is great because I finish it during the remix contest, that’s fit perfectly in this case. If you think that I deserve your votes in the contests don’t be shy and hit the button, I really like your support.;)

I also wanted to make this a motivation, i don’t even dream of putting my hands in a laser cutter or 3D printer for making my projects, so i made this printer only using my dremel to cut the plastic pieces and gluing them together with super glue.
