See a gallery of art done with the Makelangelo
Makelangelo 2 is the most user-friendly drawing robot on the market. It is a gentle introduction to all the core concepts of 3D printers, it's also a great way to teach pythagorean theorem, programming, gocde, physics, design challenges, and more.
Makelangelo requires no soldering, no wire cutting, and can be re-assembled over and over again, so it's perfect for the classroom. The kits will allow you to build a robot 72" or wider out of the box.
This kit is even easier with all the gluing taken care of. We've even installed the firmware and run a few tests. All you have to do is put it on a wall.
Makelangelo is largely inspired by the work of Paul Fisher and Hektor by JÃ¼rg Lehni and Uli Franke.
- Bigger size: v1 could only reasonably reach 2m (72") wide. v2 can go even bigger!
- Pen up: v1 drew everything as a single giant line. v2 can do better.
- Gcode: Teach your robot to draw with the same language used in 3D printers, or use CAM software to generate it for you.
- Picture conversion: Don't have time to write your own gcode? The software will convert PNG, JPEG, or GIF for you.
- Support: We're here to help you all the way.
