Inkless printer- Laser or Heat to engrave Paper
I am currently searching for projects that print on paper using heat, lasers or other inkless technology.
The problem I ran into is that a search for burn, laser and thermal in combination with printer and paper allways brings many results that are irrelevant (laser printers, thermal transfer printers and such).
What I did find is http://www.flickr.com/photos/jabella/438212343/in/set-72157600033633262/ for example. Though commercial laser solutions seem a bit "too much" and overpriced to plot a bit on paper.
Does anyone here have any links to projects that use heat or other methods to print on paper?
I guess it could be as simple as a plotter using a weak soldering iron ;-)
