Control a printer (external hardware)


I want to make some kind of photobooth. So when I press a button in Touchdesigner, a webcam takes a snapshot and sends it to the printer and prints a photo.

The first part is easy, but now I want to control the printer with Touchdesigner. Has anyone done this before?

There is a kind of workaround with ‘FolderMill’: this program automatically prints a .JPEG that appears in a folder. But ofcourse, the software is paided ($500 ??!!?) and this is not really a clean solution.

Thanks a lot!



Copying answer from FB group:

I usually use these printers. They have a folder watch utility so you just need to save images to that folder.

and they are very fast and high quality
