Conductive Ink Inkjet print(er) on Kickstarter
« on: March 03, 2014, 02:30:15 pm »
Here is a little setup for printing your test/circuit - board on a standard inkjet printer.

But seems like you glue components together - and very little info on tech specs like minimum trace width etc.

I think the main drawback is a price of (silver nano particles) ink.
Here is a whitepaper from one of the involved people: http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2493486

Some time ago there was a similar project on kickstarter:

I'd rather have a PCB jig and set of components to raise the head on a common model of inkjet printer to print directly on PCBs for normal etching (there is stuff like that for printing business cards).
