[16] => Come visit a pen plotter at work, and see how you can use computer code to send to a pen plotter and be drawn using pens, pencils, highlighters, watercolor, or any tool you can fit into the robot. We will have at least one pen plotter (AxiDraw A3 size) going at all times (there is a possibility we will have two plotters). The plotter will be plotting stickers we can then cut up and give out to people. We will offer handouts with resources for people to know more about pen plotting. We will also be demonstrating on a computer monitor simple programs in Processing that a plotter does well with. If we end up with two plotters, there is a possibility that we can help people code a small print and then plot on demand. We will also include a video (not yet made) of how I built my own plotter using OpenBuilds open source Acro system and 3d printed parts. People can ask any and all plot questions. I do want to think if there is a way to have people create their own sketches that we then plot. However, this is difficult simply due to time limits. [382] => Pen Plotting: How to Use a Drawing Robot to Make Art In this talk, I will explain all that is needed to get started in pen plotting and explore the range of possibilities available with this tool specifically from the point of view of an artist. It will be geared towards the beginner or someone interested to start plotting. A brief outline: 1. How to use Processing to create plotter files as well as other options for creating files if you don’t want to learn to code. 2. The step-by-step process I use to get a plot from inside of the computer to out on paper. 3. I will use my own pen plots to demonstrate range of possibilities varying materials, paper, and other experimental techniques with a pen plotter. 4. A list of community resources for pen plotters so people have a direction to follow to learn more.

At the Vienna Maker Faire, I was able to bring something to build and lean against the wall behind us to connect the robot. Unfortunately in CZ it will be harder for me to being such a large thing. If possible something that I can screw into to hang the robot so it can draw on the wall (if of course this is possible) It would be nice to have a little more space than one table, but it isn't necessary. We were just fine with our single table in Vienna. [74] => Everything we will plug in has very normal power needs. All is conventional.
