Making this machine was really fun and rewarding. We learned a lot on the way and we also got great feedback from the users at Trondheim Maker Faire and several other places we’ve exhibited the plotter.
There’s still much to be done to reach our ambitions for it. Hopefully we’ll be able to revisit the project in the not-so-distant future to improve some of its current functionalities as well as add some additional ones. Stay tuned!
