How to Build a Tiny CNC Drawing Robot

How to Build a Tiny CNC Drawing Robot

The [below] are nearly all the tools and parts you’ll need to build your own itty bitty CNC drawing robot.1 If you have a 3D printer and a spare Arduino, the rest of the parts should cost you around $20.  Right now this robot only has two axes, but in the very near future I hope to add either a Z axis or a pen lift.

  1. “CNC Drawing Robot”?

    You know, back in the day, they were called “plotters”…

  2. Well… I did post the designs on my “PlotterBot” website…
