Problem I didn’t Know I Had, Solved

I’ve always accepted paper trays and feeders as printer necessities but I guess it’s nice to dispense of them if possible. The Concav printer takes advantage of statics, i.e. when paper is slightly held bent, it won’t collapse – using it’s own weight as support. Paper feeds in one way, comes out the other. It even uses obligatory CMYK cartridges as a design element in what otherwise is a stark design.

  • Long Tran, as long as you have a printer, you do have this problem, maybe you were just not aware. Look at your printer and I’m pretty sure you will see structures to support the paper after printing. The only problem I see on this printer is how it’s going to deal with prints with many pages. Even so, that’s a very nice industrial design. I like it.

    Doesn’t the paper extend out of the printer just as much as the paper support would? and how does the paper curl to get fed into the printer? And isn’t the USB power brick extending into the pathway of the paper in the rendering above?

    Nice idea maybe but now we need to buy new designer ink cartridges also? They were expensive enough already. I’ll stick to my laser printer until I see a reason to replace it for paper dispensing perks. I usually look for print quality in a printer rather than how the paper comes out to justify the price.

    I like the fact that the inks are on the side, for one you can keep an eye on the ink levels, for two as the inks cartrages don’t have print heads attached (as in the majority of ink/bubble-jet printers) they cost less. My ink cartrages cost £7.50 & £12.00 Y/C/M color (each) & Black (12USD & $20)

    I like the paper idea, but i would be worried about dust, I’ve had an printer with an uncovered paper tray and the amount of dust that it got in it was huge, also if the paper was particularly dusty the ink didn’t stick.
