drawing machines

This is a video of a drawing machine we designed, built and programmed in grade 12 in Pierre de Fermat High School in Toulouse, as our engineering project. The team was composed of :
- Lucien Goubet (Programming)
- Clément Galetta (Electronics)
- Nicolas Klarsfeld (Mechanics)
- Ambroise Marigot (Organization)
The electronic was based on CMOS transistors used to control the stepper motors and using the parallel port. We used the inpout32.dll library to communicate through the parallel port. The user interface was programmed using the SDL graphics library. To move the pen up and down we used an electro-magnet. The moving part of the mechanics was made using rack-and-pinion and drawer glides, and the structure was made using wood and plexiglas.
