Wall Mount Drawbot

I’ve been having a lot of fun with the baby drawbot. I will definitely make another of those in the future. As you can see from the images below, it’s able to do portraits on 8.5×11 paper.

But I’m ready to try a larger format. So I designed a wall mount drawbot. It’s made of hardboard and 1/4-20 rod. I wanted to use nylon bolts but I couldn’t find any long enough. Or I wasn’t sure what length I needed so I bought an aluminum threaded rod.

As you can see in the video, it’s easy to slice it down using a rotary cutter.

I will make this system so it can also mount on a board to make it more agile.

I’m also changing the gondola to have a “quick pen changer”.
