This is a Thermal Printer Case. It is a Remix of "Desk Thermal Printer Case" made in openSCAD so it is configurable. It is much sturdier (5mm thick wales) than the original and uses only two parts. NO support is needed. Use four rubber feet on the bottom side. Add/remove hole from the front panel if needed for your project.
The goal of this project was to connect my printer as an IoT device with its own homepage so I didn't need Android drivers or programs to print text on it! A demo of this is included as 'ESP_ThermalPrinter_webbpage_V4.ino' (it is a simple webb-page that lets the user create a printed checklist).
The (demo) program 'ESP_ThermalPrinter_MQTT_V1.ino' turns the printer in to a MQTT node and prints the incoming values.

Depending on your printer and its tolerances it might be a good idea to clean the smaller holes whit a drill.
