|OK, so I wanted to try and build something that make something of it own. This is the result of that.
It's basicly a plotter that can move in two directions X and Z.
|But I had to make it more interesting, so instead of just making it go back and forth, I put in a light destector that "see" the black lines that the pen is drawing.
I put a rule on the light detector to change the direction of the Z axle at a random time betwine 0.1 - 2 seconds.
|I also put in detector at the end of each tracks end so the sled would not go outside its track.|
|It's a bit tricky then you have 4 ends of track and only two pressure sensors. But this solution make it works...|
|...The black piston is pushing this thing...|
|....That push this pressure sensors.|
|Have the same solution on the small sled.|
|I dident have that many long cables that I needed so I came up with this solution.|
|Here is the first test I did. The pen wasent haveing it's weight on, so it dident touch the paper all the time.|
|Here are the second test run.|
|This is under it's building stage, had to do some modifications after this.|
