We invited artist jeandrawstrings back to try out a new and improved robo painter powered by a 4 axis robotic arm. This video demonstrates the arm’s built in record and play functionality using its native firmware (a fork of Grbl) and the stock record and play functionality. Compared to our first robot (which ran on our spartan homemade firmware), it’s much quieter, sports analog feedback technology, and cosmetic enhancements.
The robotic painter has been upgraded with a water pump and water brush, faster 84 MHz Arm Cortex-M3 (up from 16 MHz), and minor software improvements. It can now replicate color mixing and reproduce full color paintings, and on top of all that it can do it faster than the original artist (because it skips lulls in movement).
