Consumer Inkjet Design Language (CIDL) is an ecologically considered design language for a series of inkjet printers. CIDL printers are designed without the use of metallic paint to enable recycling at scale, a significant detail in an industry that relies on metallic painted parts to differentiate brands and products. CIDL printers are for personal use and feature an interface and operation much like typical inkjet printers.
