A mural drawing robot and a gentle introduction to 3D printing


Makelangelo is a polargraph mural drawing robot. It is intended to teach students about programming, physics, trigonometry, and electronics in a fun, goal-oriented way. Makelangelo is scalable: our test models have ranged from 30cm^2 to 300cm^2.
