Crayon Plotter

The crayon plotter is the culmination of a semester's worth of Mechatronic Design. It has a resolution of about a millimeter and can draw all over a whole letter sheet (with 2 cm margins). Arbitrary curves and angles are possible; input is over a 9600 baud serial line, and commands are standard LOGO. I wrote the firmware, Rich Juchniewicz designed and built the mechanicals, and Sheih Hoe Diong designed and implemented a means of control using a Super Nintendo controller.
