The Automatic Lego Drawing Machine

There are a great many prototypes that litter my workshop, so I thought it would be a good idea to talk about a few before I reuse their parts. This video is all about an old idea for a drawing machine and how I made a quick model out of Lego to see if the idea would work.

I was wanting to eventually make a larger decorative box made out of wood, whereby people could turn a handle/push a button and the box would draw them a picture on an A5 sheet of paper. I had started planning out a little gear box to change the rotation speeds that would result in more patterns being drawn. Sadly there were other priorities at the time and this project unfortunately got shelved. Still fun to get the brain working on this one though.
