Makelangelo 5

490.00 CAD

The world famous wall-crawling art robot.  Makes beautiful signs, posters, art, and more!

“At the end of the day, this machine is more versatile/flexible and so more fun than an Axidraw and open for me more possibilities of tweaking the drawing.”  — Ignatus#5094, Discord, 2021

How does Makelangelo work?

Attach the Makelangelo to a wall, window, easel, or whiteboard.  Two motors pull special belts attached to the pen holder, where a third motor lifts the pen off the paper.  This style of machine is called a polargraph.  The brain of the robot speaks through the USB cable and understands Gcode (the same language as 3D printers).  The Makelangelo Software converts your art into gcode.  It understands DXF, SVG, BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, and even Scratch 2 programs!

Makelangelo can run connected directly to your PC so you get real time feedback (better for learning) OR use the SD card included with your kit to run the robot disconnected (better for drawing).

Drawing pictures and photographs

The Makelangelo can load all BMP, JPG, PNG, and GIF files.  Images are interpreted through a variety of styles, most with sub-options to tweak them even more.  See how.

Drawing vectors

Makelangelo understands some SVG and DXF files.  Commonly used vector art programs like Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, and (the very free) Inkscape can all be used to make line drawings that scale perfectly.  See how.

Drawing Scratch programs

MIT’s Scratch program can export SB2 files that Makelangelo understands.  See how.

Makelangelo Size

Makelangelo 5 draws up to A2 size drawings with markers, gel pens, and more.  A US letter size paper is about the size of an A4 sheet.

Makelangelo can draw A1 size, but we don’t recommend it.
