Robots drawing robots

We recently got our hands on a one of those cutting machines to make templates for papercraft projects. These machines are great for cutting out templates on paper, cardstock and vinyl. You can also stick a pen on it to draw things. This can be pretty handy because you can use that feature to create outlines of objects or use a scoring pen to create folds.

One of the fun things you can do make artwork from your favorite coloring book. Ladyada’s Coloring Book, R is for Robots is a super awesome collection of art that is full of beautiful lines and shapes. The cover however wasn’t setup as an outline for 2D draw-bots 🙂 Luckly, Adafruit open sources everything so I was able to take the PDF and turn the vectors into outline shapes. A lot of the original artwork is maintained in the PDF so there was a good amount of tweaking involved to get the outline right. I thought I’d share the SVG with the community so if anyone has a draw-bot, they can make their own. It’s just the cover but the rest of the book is relatively easy to setup. Here’s a little timelapse of the robot drawing, well, a robot. Happy crafting makers.
