Hello experts,
We have a few okidata microline 320 dot matrix printers at remote locations,
They are all working just fine.
But many times we need to improve some of our features and its kind of difficult when testing... we can not see the printing.... on the printer itself

Is there any way to simulate this  printer locally and have some sort of preview ? or stored file as output?

Or any solution besides buying one okidata for development purposes ?
Wich means would be used a few days a year?

Regards,

You just acknowledged you have to be able to see the printing to assess the output.  So even if there was an emulator, you would still need the actual printer to see what it looks like.

Example, you have printers that speak postscript, yet you still have to look at the output from the printer to determine the quality of the output.

You're not going to find  an emulator that purposely goes low resolution and makes off center dots and simulates running out of ink. So bottom line, buy one for development purposes if you want to see what the output is going to look like.
