Make Any Flat Surface Your Canvas with Gocupi!

“Do you have a need to robotically draw images on any vertical surface using a robot? Don’t want to be limited by having to send gcode or commands to a tiny microcontroller that limits what you can draw? Then gocupi is exactly what you have been looking for!”

Gocupi (pronounced “go-kew-pie”) uses Raspberry Pi and go source code to control stepper motors that allow you to start drawing whatever it is your nerdy little heart desires.

The Gocupi Kickstarter will end on August 27 and is already fully funded. Dallas Makerspace members Brandon Green and Brandon Dunson created the project.

“We have been working with a hand full of beta testers that have helped us a great deal with developing a system that is easier for the beginner to use and also suggesting some features that we had not considered…stay tuned to the stretch goals to find out more about the upgrades. We need your help to accomplish the rest of our goals for the project, and maybe even incorporate some ideas of your own!”

Check out the project on Kickstarter or visit Gocupi’s website for updates and further details.
