Drawbot is my final project for Prof. Andy Law’s Computing Physically class in my junior year at RISD.

Drawbot is a wireless pen plotter robot that has no work area limitations. This is unlike most pen plotters in both the open-source community and the commercial sector. It is more broadly speaking an exploration into tetherless, free-roaming digital fabrication tools. Potential applications of Drawbot include sail-making and road painting.

Drawbot was exhibited at the RISD Senior Show in 2016.

The user converts a vector graphic file into gcode using the open-source software Inkscape. The user then runs a Processing program that transmits the gcode via bluetooth to Drawbot.
