Well, yeah, but the turtle had zero turning radius. This is usually done by having two independent driving wheels on the same central axis, with passive casters front and rear.

TELL TURTLE RT 90 would leave him centered at the same point.

Do you remember

That's a very nice project. It reminds me of pen-plotters, which you don't see much anymore.

Pen Plotters is a good reminder indeed. This robot system, if it had some sort of steering mechanism, could certainly serve for unlimited sized printing. IMagine if it had a pen-changing station to go along with it. That could be a huge concept. But it may not be accurate enough for large drawings to be precise. But definitely it should be able to do drawings. And the whole thing may be possible to scale up, which would be quite good.

AND the appearance of the whole thing is definitely very well thought out and wonderfully executed. This device is an excellent example of good design.

Thanks for showing us this post.
