[Project] Robotic drawing with the new Linkbot Sketch Pack!

The new Linkbot Sketch Pack adds fun drawing capabilities to Linkbot robots! Program the Linkbot to create all kinds of shapes and patterns as it moves over a paper or whiteboard surface, lowering the pen to draw and raising it to move to another area without drawing.

The following program, written in Ch code, shows how to control the Linkbot so that it traces out a square. (PDF file with code available here.)

/* Square Drawing Demo

This demo shows how to program the robot to draw a square by using a pen with the Linkbot Sketch Pack accessories. Note that there are two adjustment factor variables (turn_adjfactor and line_adjfactor) that need to be specified, depending on the surface being used. (Trial and error required for best results.) */
