With reference to the Figure, a printer plotter prints a page instead of the more standard typewriter carriage approach. In particular, an X scan motor 10 and a Y scan motor 12 move the grinthead and/or input scanner device 14 in both the X and Y directions. This approach provides a more accurate means to move the printhead in both the X and Y directions The accuracy is necessary in order to "stitch" consecutive passes in the slower Y scan direction.
