Are there open source printers?

I try to be paperless as much as I can, however, it would seem that my partner wants a printer for her work.

Doing some research, it seems that many printer makers, HP, Canon, Epson, etc. build in obsolescence.

How infuriating. Any and people know about open source hardware printers?


So there are ecotank/megatank printers that you fill, versus the waste of cartridges. Looks promising EXCEPT they have the built in obsolescence. A basic error that says some part needs to be replaced, but of course it is not serviceable.

However, I see on @hackaday that one could buy a continuous ink system for an inkjet printer. Maybe that would not have a similar error?
