The Drawing Robot sketching a smiley

We are currently testing the possibilities of a robot arm we built. As it is a prototype, the accuracy still needs to be improved.
The key of the arm design is to translate the weight of the motors as next as possible to the base, in order to lighten the arm, thereby reducing the inertia and the stress of the motors.
The control is done with Processing via an Arduino and a selfmade version of Renbotics multiplexing shield and the help of all the info provided by Oleg at CircuitsAtHome.

This is a test, plotting a svg file. The figure is upside down because in the screen the measures start from the top, and in the real world the robot measures start at the base.
