Becoming a Game Master is new to me so I am learning that I have to read, read, and then review what I read. After reading, next is getting the miniatures and drawing some maps! Well, I can't just draw maps with my fingers, can I?
Time to make a plotter to draw these maps for me. The approach will be to design a rigid plotter following the CoreXY design. The link shows a great write up but below is the primary mechanics behind the design.
My approach will be to use:
- Ridged Aluminum and metal yard sticks for the basic structure.
- Many 3-D printed parts
- 2 stepper motors (these are very affordable 28BYJ-48 from Amazon)
- 1 Arduino
- 1 PC/ Laptop
- 1 Servo (to lift the pen)
Here are some demonstrations of the CoreXY movements:
