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:
- DC Boarduino
- Continuous Rotation Servos (2 of them)
- Servo Wheels (2 of them)
- Half-size breadboard
- 9V battery holder with switch & 2.1mm plug
- Breadboarding wire bundle
All of these pieces are available from our friends at Adafruit Industries.
Check out the complete how-to here. Nice work, Pete!
