Thermal Printer to Max

March 25, 2011 | 5:32 am

I have an Epson thermal printer, the kind that is used at most restaurants. I am trying to connect the printer to Max for printing lines that correspond to a person’s movement. I looked at the few, and brief tutorials online but didn’t find too many leads. Maybe someone has an external r patch already built. Thanks in advance

I have no clue, but I I wanted to get one, the second thing I’d do is to see if there’s a way to control it via Terminal on OS X. If so, you could use shell or aka.shell to control it from max.

printing to an inkjet is relatively simple. Just declare your printer in the file path. The difficult part is getting a thermal printer to synch without any drivers.
