Inkjet Printer to Manual Plotter- Plotting Lines Controlled by a Joystick!

This article is updated every week, with new ongoing developments in the project. 

If you like to open up old electronic appliances to see what's inside, and salvage a few useful components, this article is for you. In this article, we are going to learn about the basic idea involved in converting an inkjet printer into a plotter.




Project overview- There's next to no difference between the mechanism of movement in inkjet printer and a RC Car. So you don't need any prior experience in Arduino.
Here's what the project looks and works like, so far-

As every printer does not contain the exact same setup of components inside, we'll be talking about the general idea of what is to be done.

5 Popular Easy to Use Modules for Arduino

If you have  recently started tinkering with Arduino and are learning the concepts of programming and hardware by replicating projects, this article is for you!
Today, we are gonna talk about the relatively 'easier to use' Arduino modules. By saying easy to use, it does not mean less featured. 

Tired of Repeated Recurring Arduino Serial Monitor Values? Try this-

The Serial monitor in the Arduino IDE is essential for simulating outputs and diagnosing problems in the circuit. However, depending on what your project does, the Serial monitor, not only helps you, but can also potentially drive you crazy with constant bombardment of serial values like this-
