Polargraph Drawing Machine

We built a custom Polargraph drawing machine. It is installed in our Lab and draws on a large glass wall:

The nice thing about the Polargraph design is that it scales up so readily. Increasing the length of the timing belts is the only mechanical change needed to increase the drawing area. For the GLM conference held at Havas, we installed a 30′ wide version of the drawing machine that drew word clouds from a live STT transcript of the conference:
