Last night’s BuildBrighton meeting was pretty cool, with a great turnout, and people actually getting on and making stuff (standing around drinking beer, talking nerd and eating pizza may be cool, but the real cool kids just get on with it!)

Seb was busy trying out his stepper-driven drawing machine.
This is just a proof-of-concept to try out the software and hardware kit, but the final idea is to scale this up and use bike chains/sprockets and draw across a 5m surface!

After a successful test, Seb tweaked the software and started producing some real works of art….

It can even draw images – albeit slightly abstract ones…

No, the machine didn’t suddenly start drawing upside-down.
Some of us probably need some remedial how-to-use-your-smartphone lessons. Still, a great looking print, even if the photo is a bit wonky!
