You will need three (3) printers. using the transport assembly - One for each axis. Use printers however that have smooth rods in them. the Z-axis will have to be made from a printer (Scanner or copier) that has a very strong motor and a bigger belt than most printers. PS many older scanner use a rack and pinion setup and this can be very handy.

I think I am going to try it, I will just run a piece of wood through and replace the ink jet with a router, Then I can print word documents on wood, you may be able to use the electrical source for your black ink, if you have an inkjet, to power a solenoid for you Z axis, you can do it with some work so have fun.
Yes ,but you will need several of them to get it right ,you will need three seperate avis x,y,z, also three seperate motor drivers, and a translator interface circuit. Check out some of the CNC stuff online for the software and futher instructions.
you'll need to make your own program...
