mDrawbot Kit

SKU: CV90070

An amazing 4-in-1 drawing robot, it can be assembled into four different configurations: mScara, mSpider, mEggBot, and mCar. Included in the kit are over 60 parts and components, including beams, clamps, and motors, as well as easy-to-use software for controlling the robots. Also available are options for Bluetooth control, a laser engraver, or both!!

mScara: mScara is a SCARA (Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm) driven by stepper motors. When you attach a pen to mScara, it can draw pictures on a flat surface. You can also turn mScara into a desktop laser engraver by replacing the pen with a laser diode.

mSpider: mSpider is a drawing robot that can draw pictures on a wall or a white board. Two stepper motors control the movement of mSpider with strings. Its drawing range can be expanded by increasing the length of the strings.

mEggBot: mEggBot is designed to draw on things that are improbable to print on, such as eggs, baseballs, or ping-pong balls. It can be used to write letters, draw expressions on spheroid, or draw on Easter eggs.

mCar: mCar is a three-wheel robot car that contains 2 stepper-motor drive wheels and a ball-caster wheel. It can draw its own movement tracks on a flat surface. Use chalk instead of a pen to draw on the floor.
