When the heat in Brooklyn can get up to about 100 degrees, it's such a relief to come into our nice, unnaturally cool office. However, it sucks when you only have one remote to share between the six of us, so for our next project we decided to build our own air conditioning remote.

Check out the Argentum in action as we print 3 Cell Phone Charger circuits.

Developing a circuit by hand is a thing of the past.

Just place, print, and dry after every pass for EasyPCB.

Even though we're an Australian company, we are still super excited for the 4th of July! We decided to celebrate by building a little circuit to flash red, white, and blue while playing the Start Spangled Banner.

One of the coolest features of the Argentum is that it allows us to print circuits onto a variety of materials, from fiberglass to paper to polyimide film to cloth. We decided to experiment with the limits of what this printer can do by trying to produce a functional circuit on a banana!

Something we’ve wanted to print ever since we built the first Argentum is a speaker. I know what you’re thinking, thats like… a 3D thing, not a 2D circuit. Well, continue reading to find out how we made it!

Last time on Amazing Inkjet – Part 1 we talked about how an inkjet cartridge uses magic to convert electrical energy into kinetic energy and fire a 50pL drop of liquid (1/160,000 the size of a raindrop) over and over again.

Since the beginning of time we’ve had an issue with stringing of our ink cartridges.What’s stringing? It’s a term we invented to describe a frequent printing artefact. It usually appears as small strings or strands emanating from one side of a print (in the vertical/y direction).

It’s been a while since we had any updates with cool circuits so we figured it was about time. Now that we’ve got a few more team members, there is a little time to actually play with the Argentum and see what it can do.

The purpose of an inkjet print head is to eject a small amount of liquid onto a substrate. Usually the liquid is ink and the substrate is paper, but inkjet technology can be used for much more than just printing words on a page or pictures of your next-door neighbour’s prosthetic leg on your mobile phone case.

One of the inspirations behind the development of 3D printers was the dream of a self replicating machine (hopefully not the terminator kind). So far electronics have eluded self replication because 3D printers lacked a suitable material to produce electronics.
