Send Page to printer with Arduino

Hello,

I am trying to print a page, I want to take a word File and send it to the Arduino with the serail, and than will send it to the printer and print it.

Any ideas how to do this? :cold_sweat: :cold_sweat:

Thanks,
Haim.

Hello, Need more information...

What printer? Where? What interface?

Where does the file come from?

What computer connected to Arduino??

I using Normal color Canon printer, And I want to send The file with the serial.

I connect the arduino to pc with the normal connector and connect the Arduino to the printer with USB shields.

Thanks from helping :slight_smile:

Even assuming you have a USB host shield on your Arduino it will for all practical be purposes impossible. The process of preparing data to send to the printer is likely to be very complex and, even if you know how to do that, the Arduino probably hasn't enough SRAM and probably isn't fast enough.

This is going to be extraordinarily difficult, or impossible. But is also seems pointless - why not simply eliminate the Arduino and plug the printer into the PC and then use the appropriate PC application to print it?
