Spherebot reloaded: Customize your Xmas

Posted on Thursday, December 19th, 2013 in 3D Model, open source by DP


Boris Landoni from Open Electronics has designed and built another Christmas project the Spherebot, an open-source robot to draw on spherical objects:

Let’s create a plotter to decorate Christmas Tree balls with writing and drawings.

This machine: a printer, or better to say a plotter, which will draw with a marker on spheres at will, derived from models transformed into G-code files. The machine is easily doable with a few 3D printable pieces (we’ll provide the relative models in a special Thingiverse page) and a control board which is the same of the 3Drag. A computer will be needed for the appropriate printing software.
