Cartesio – low cost cartesian plotter robot made with Arduino #ArduinoD16

NewImage

Thanks to Alessandro for sending in this cool cartesian plotter project! Check out more here.

Recently the famous site evilmadscientist introduced the new art robot called “Axidraw“.I saw the robot in action and it is very similar to the robot I built in the 2015, called “Cartesio”, a 3d printed cartesian robot. So, I decided to publish in open source all the details about Cartesio.

Cartesio is similar to Axidraw, the main differences are:

  • Cartesio is a cartesian robot (xy movement) while Axidraw is a type of corexy movement (t-bot I think)
  • Cartesio is based on Arduino, while Axidraw is based on the EBB Driver board
  • Cartesio has a large working area (40×30), like an A3 paper, while Axidraw has a normal working area (30×20), like an A4 paper.
  • Cartesio is 3d printed, while Axidraw is in metal (? this is not very clear watching the pictures)
  • Axidraw can write with a fountain pen, Cartesio not (yet)
  • Axidraw costs 450$, Cartesio costs 60$. Not bad!

I’m interested in robots that can draw so in the last years I made many drawing robots. Cartesio is the last experiment. I saw a cartesian arm and it was very interesting, so I decided to build one.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
