A Very Quick History Of Printers
Only two manners existed before the birth of the printer. Communication was either face to face, or
people would get someone to do their writing. Many of them were unable to read because the art was
beyond understanding when it came to the text part. The Dawn Of Printing (was seal for instance) in
Mesopotamia, and Egypy, they commenced a march towards the smart advancements which we use
in modern times.
The cylinder seal often used to imprint the wax on sealed envelope was a great way of proving
authenticity of important documents for the Mesopotamians These seals were stone cylinders whose
surface contained raised letters and pictures. To get an image just roll it across wet clay or wax. The
ancient Egyptians and Chinese populace are known to have used woodblock printing in 220 AD itself.
The printing press that worked on screw press was established around 1440. This is considered to
be a vital invention during the 21st century, Johannes Gutenberg devised the printing press by using
sohisticated technology. The accumulation of knowledge took a giant leap once texts could be mass
Photocopiers and the laser printer made their initial appearance in offices in the 1960's, with the laser
one appearing latter on. A researcher by name Gary Starkweather invented laser kinds in 1969 at
Xerox. Very small sized laser printers that are portable and can be placed even on a small desk have
come into the market.
The 3D printer which may sound distant has a big role in the coming generations of these devices.
Having the ability to develop 3D models from former digital designs, 3D output devices can be used in
a number of sectors.
3D printing plays a vital role in architecture, dental and medical research because they help them in
making scale models. This only takes a few hours, and is more accurate. The printer uses an additive
process which is adding layers than removing them. They will be used by the general public in the
The printer technology is in news of late though it was a little slow to create waves during the
technological upswing in 20th century. The printers have made progress by leaps and bounds starting
from ordinary seals to 3D output mechanisms. It is rumored they are working on how to print food.
