The goal of this project was to design and modify an inkjet printer to print multilayered images of a selected polymer. A standard inkjet printer was modified to create a dual axis printing system. A printable polymer solution was created containing polyvinylpyrrolidone. A printing material was also developed to provide a more compatible surface for adhering. With further modification, the printer could be used to print various polymer solutions onto a range of materials allowing for a variety of applications.
