Drawing with light and AxiDraw

The folks at myDesignLab made long exposure RGB LED drawings using AxiDraw, even going so far as to make multi layer three dimensional drawings.

Lindsay Wilson used a laser in a similar manner, first with long exposure photos, then with a UV laser and phosphorescent vinyl and then with a UV laser and cyanotype paper. The cyano print shown above is an example of his experiments drawing Lorentz attractor patterns.

We’re excited to see so many people sharing what they are doing with the AxiDraw. Here are a few examples we’ve found in places like twitter and instagram.

Introducing the AxiDraw

AxiDraw drawing machine

We are very pleased to introduce our newest art robot: the AxiDraw.

The AxiDraw is a simple, modern, precise, and versatile pen plotter, capable of writing or drawing on almost any flat surface. It can write with your favorite fountain pens, permanent markers, and other writing implements to handle an endless variety of applications. Its unique design features a writing head that extends beyond the machine, making it possible to draw on objects bigger than the machine itself.

The AxiDraw is a fantastic machine for making art — along with all those other things that you might use a pen-wielding robot for: Making “hand written” invitations, signing forms, or making neater whiteboard art than one might otherwise be able to.

AxiDraw is available to order today, and begins shipping next week. See it in action and learn more on the product page.
