well I have bought a small thermal printer... chinese made...
interfacing it with arduino uno board with adafruit library... but the issue is that the functions in their library are hidden and is not giving me in-depth info that how they are controlling the commands on the serial level.... I am able to send strings and characters through it but cannot print any image.... thats why need more RAW control to try sending the bitmaps...
check this out.... I have been following this for the software libraries https://www.adafruit.com/products/597
I didnt buy this printer, ordered a similar one from china... i guess if this specific printer is used,it may print the image too.
All the best.
Let me know if you need any further help in it.
Well, i have bought 2 printers (48cm paper width) with control boards, i need to print images and i am unable to do it.
the exact model i have is http://www.prttech.com/Printer-mechanism/PT48A/
also its control board... u just need tx,rx,rts and 5V power supply to connect.
If it can work in your application strings and texts only, i can give one to you. as the shipment will cost much if you want to buy just one from CHINA.
