Michelangelo: A 3-DOF Sketching Robot

Tools & Materials Used

  • Servo Actuators
  • C++ code

Duration: 4 months

The robot takes input from an image file ( preferably .jpg/.bmp ) and delineates the image. The uniqueness of the design lies in its ability to draw curves unlike a printer. It is a 3-DOF sketching robot which incorporates 5 servo actuators running on 12V D.C. supply. The robot takes instructions from a C++ program through a USB interface.
