Abstract: As one of the most important and widely used manufacturing technologies nowadays, inkjet printing technology is being developed and improved in a rapid speed in order to meet the progressively higher requirement and development in manufacturing and fabrication demands. With competitive advantages of the precisely delivered drop volume and controllable drop deposition, Drop-on-demand (DOD) inkjet printing is considered to be one of the promising methods during both lab experiments and factory manufacturing in the field of Rapid Prototyping. Through years? research work in the past decades, there are two main forms in DOD printing systems. The DOD micro-dispensing system is a system widely used in current lab experiments, which functional electric and bio-devices are required to be printed in a layer-by-layer manner. Meanwhile, Piezoelectric Print is also another form of Drop-on-Demand printing, whose print head makes use of the piezoelectric nature to induce stress while a voltage signal passes through it to dispense ink. The objective of this thesis is to design and develop a tool of software for engineers in the lab to communicate with the machine when the experiments are prepared and being in process, i.e., Graphic User Interface (GUI) based on OpenGL.
