What is XY-plotter?
XY Plotter Robot Kit is a drawing robot that can move a pen or other instrument to draw digital artwork on flat surface. It can also be developed into a laser engraver by adding the Laser Engraver Upgrade Pack.
A varity of components
This kit consists of over 60 kinds of components from Makeblock, including beams, brackets, motors, etc. Here's the picture of all the components.
XY Plotter V2.0 can be controlled by 2 software, mDraw and Benbox.
mDraw is a cross-platform open-source software developed by Makeblock.
Compatibility: mDrawBot (mScara, mCar, mEggBot, mSpider), XY Plotter kit (servo mode, laser mode)
OS Environment: Windows, Mac
Supported File Type: *.svg, *.bmp (convert to *.svg)
Benbox is compatible with both servo mode and laser mode of XY plotter. One of the best things about using Benbox is that Benbox support gray-scale engraving, and editing figures and characters within the software.
The current version of Benbox only supports Window OS. We occasionally get reports from users that Benbox is blocked by antivirus software during installation. This is because Benbox is not in the whitelist of the antivirus software. Please rest assured that Benbox is safe to download and install. Make sure to turn off the antivirus software before installing Benbox on your computer.
Extension: Laser Engraver Pack (500mW)
You can upgrade your XY-plotter with Laser Engraver Upgrade Pack (SKU: 98004)
The power supply in this kit is USA plug AC to DC wall power supply. You can buy other Powerplugs in our website.
Due to the particularity of laser, the application scope of the laser pack and products that included laser module is limited, please do not expand their application scope. Limitations are as follows:
1. The laser pack can only be used in the following kit:
• Use in mScara, one building form of mDrawbot (SKU: 90082, 90086)
• Use in XY Plotter Robot Kit (With Electronic Modules) (SKU: 90014)
(Note: For kits that included laser pack, we provide detailed manual and technical support.)
2. The laser pack can only be used in the following DIY product:
• DIY XY Plotter Robot Kit (Without Electronic Modules) (SKU: 91018)
• Other DIY products for personal use or agency use, for instance, transforming XY plotter or 3D Printer.
(Note: For using laser pack in DIY products, we only provide laser specification.)
