Printr Egg Boogie Board Bot
by gkrangan, published
Built this X-Y Plotter, by integrating parts from various sources.
- a PrintrBot Simple frame and hardware (assembled only what was minimally needed for this purpose);
- Egg-Bot electronics and the pen-holder attachment;
- a couple of NEMA 17 bipolar stepper motors;
- and a Boogie Board (Original 8.5 version) as the plotting/drawing surface.
I was initially taping an index card onto the print platform for testing purposes, but when I saw this Boogie Board at a toy store, it seemed like a perfect choice to be used as the writing surface. One can draw/write anything on it, and erase with a press of a button. Of course, it can still be removed and any other suitable surface can be taped or mounted on the print platform, as necessary.
Sources of parts/components used:
The software used is Inkscape with the Egg-Bot extensions.
