CNC Plotting
University of New Mexico SAAP FAB LAB

CNC plotting was a method of digital drawing developed for a class looking for alternative ways of creating drawings. The method is based on a plotter machine but instead with the use of a CNC drill to draw with a pen. With the help of Prof Stephen Mora who designed a collet to be picked up by the machine. I designed a 3d printed pen holder with a spring that could protect the pen from breaking from the machines force. By using the engraving settings on the CNC machine I was able to import drawings to be plotted.  Various drawings were created to explore the process and create drawings. Some ending in broken pens and torn paper, others in successful drawings.
