Assuming you're talking the Aficio MP 3500 here...

It appears that Aficio, like a lot of companies nowdays, doesn't publish tech specs
on their hardware- just config guides on "How to set up your printer through Control Panel".

That said, it appears the engine is a Ricoh, and it supports TWAIN (www.twain.org).
Maybe you could cobble together something what will throw the right control codes at
the device with a simple TWAIN program or script.

Hope that helps,
Jim B.
