I have just received inkshield purchased from Nerd Creation Labs, I stacked inkshield on my Arduino Mega and uploaded THIS CODE provided by the creator of inkshield,and it works pretty well. I can print text ;)

Questions :

1: The code given above can only print text in a single Font. Can i add multiple Fonts in a single code.?

2: How can i change the Font to something like Times New Roman, Arial,calibri or more stylish Fonts like snell RoundHand and Zapfino.?

Please help

Thank you

The fonts are the little bitmaps starting at line 50. Each 16 bit value is 1 column of the letter to be printed. There are 10 columns of pixels per character (the rowsPerChar value). The least significant bit is the bottom row.

So to change the font all you need to do is change those bitmaps.

  • Is there any software or online tool to create such bitmaps? – Mudassir Hussain Aug 30 '17 at 4:20

Sure you can.

2: How can i change the Font to something like Times New Roman, Arial,calibri or more stylish Fonts like snell RoundHand and Zapfino.?

The top 700-odd lines of the code are the font. You just need to find a way of creating the same kind of data from your own chosen font.
