Fleri, Salvatore G. HP Photosmart C6200 All-in-One Printer Research About Printer
Guillaume, Ruggieri Group #2. HP Photosmart printer C6200 We took the printer serial number, we look it up online in order to know which tools is required to take it apart.And we also take pictures of different angles of the printer.
Hotz, Gabrielle E. [HCC Group 4] Disassemble printer
Lamin, Abu Group #3 We first research parts of the printer and how they work.I found that HHc has a software called Open SCAD which is a softwarw that allows you to make 3D software. It a software that focus more on CAD spects than on the artistic aspect. In other word it more useful for someone who is making 3D model rather than someone who wants to make a animated movie
