Open house demonstration / art installation
Over the past few months we have been programming and training our robot, BeastBot 1, a 48” x 48” CNC, to make drawings and paintings. We will open our studio for a painting demonstration / art installation. BeastBot 1 will be creating a large scale watercolor painting. Going from dipping the paintbrush in the ink, to wiping off the excess, to the paper and back again, over and over until the painting is complete. Using a CNC machine as a medium, rather than just a machine that can cut in 3D, has opened our art to a whole new dimension. We’d like to demonstrate how to use new technologies in ways outside the normal parameters.
We will discuss how to edit G-code .
