Numerically Controlled from Paper Fortress on Vimeo.Matt W. Moore has been successful in creating some robotic drawings.
"Vector graphics are converted into a tool path and then a machine language which controls a 3-axis CNC machine retrofitted with a special fixture that holds a marker and mimics hand pressure during the act of drawing. "
To lift the jargon a little bit, CNC means Computer Numerical Control which is used in computer-aided design (CAD) or computer-aided manufacturing (CAM).
In my experience, CNC has involved laser-cutting materials such as acrylic or vinyl.
Instead of using a laser to carry out the path of his drawing, Moore has devised a gadget to hold a sharpie.
