Zebra card printer, Java SDK and units

Hi, I'm trying to print id card with Zebra ZXP 7 Series printer using Java SDK and I need some hints to understand how should I calculate dimensions.

For example this method:

ZebraCardGraphics.drawImage(byte[] imageData, int x, int y,int width, int height,float transparency, RotationType rotation)

gets Integers as x and y coordinator, width and height.

I guess it's pixels.

How to calculate these values from centimeters?

What is the density? Can I read density (pixel/centimeter) from printer with SDK?

Hi Jakub,All the Zebra card

Hi Jakub,

All the Zebra card printers are 12 dots(pixels) per millimeter. That's also equivalent to 300 dots per inch.

Hope this helps, Robin
