For under $70, you will be able to assemble your personal Arduino-compatible kit for tinkering, and playing with basic CNC output. Be it plotting a quick graffiti, printing a one-off business card on the fly, or multiple Piccolos working together to create a large mural, this kit provides a platform for experimenting with 2-D or 3-D digital fabrication at a small scale.
Post by Kacia of Coconut Robot I’m super excited about this project today! If I’m honest with you, after doing this project, I want to embroider just about everything Harlow writes or draws! I love how it captures a moment in time: there will be a time when she writes all of her letters the... Read More »
Piccolo is a pocket sized open source CNC-bot. Using laser-cutting, off-the-shelf hardware and Arduino, you can make your own simple 3 axis robot. Attach a brush or pen to make a quick drawing robot, or extend Piccolo with sensors, custom toolheads, or by using multiple Piccolos together. Experiment with 2D or 3D digital fabrication at a small scale!
