Friday Night Drawbot

Spotted in the Adafruits flickr pool: this clever take on the MAKE Drawbot using a DC Boarduino. Pete (aka Raster) writes:

Friday night turned into Robotics/Art night at the 2XL Makerspace. I remembered seeing this Drawbot Project, and while you can modify normal servos to be continuous rotation servos, I already had some continuous rotation servos on-hand, so we got to work. (Or play, if you prefer.)

The Drawbot consists of just a handful of parts. Here’s a list of the items we used:

All of these pieces are available from our friends at Adafruit Industries.

  1. Thanks for the mention. I know this is a pretty simple project, but I’m hoping it’s simple enough for beginners, and that it’s just the beginning of my building “robots that make art.” :)
