The goal of this project is to get a XY table compact, mobile and easily dismountable to be handled everywere. With this mobility, the utility of this tracer call for versatility. That is why, this tracer have been designed to accept several exchangeable heads.
The active surface is around a A4 size of a paper sheet. It is called to be an engraver/cutter with a laser head, a 3D printer with 3D printer pen, a graphic tracer whith a pen, a « Steadycam » with a compact camera and also an embroidery machine whren used with a sewing machine, and, why not, an airbrusher ?
His design and his operation integrate, at conception, all those constraints. Multitraces is the result of an assembly of 3D printed pieces on little machines (max 150x150mm), standard mechanical and electrical parts (motor, bearings, guides, hardware, wiring and socket). Hi s electronic his based on an Arduino nano easy to manage and personalise. Software is entirely based on open source here again to help anyone to personalise it.
This work is actually in progress.
