What is a Makelangelo?

The Makelangelo is an art robot that draws posters and murals. It’s a fun, easy, and affordable way to learn about 3D printing CNC technology without the burning hot danger nozzle or the expensive, tricky plastic.

The Makelangelo is fun. It can be used by children as young as six with adult supervision. Choosing a drawing and a color is easy – it will work with any marker up to 1 inch (25mm) in diameter.

The Makelangelo is risk-free. Print failure on a 3D printer can be expensive and dangerous. Print failure on a Makelangelo costs a piece of paper.

The Makelangelo is affordable. A full 3D printer uses expensive plastic that won’t fit in a school budget. The Makelangelo only uses markers and paper. It can even be mounted on a whiteboard so it takes up no room in a class.

The Makelangelo is educational. It can be hard to make STEAM – Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, and Math – relevant to young minds.  Solving in class how a Makelangelo works is a great way to introduce trigonometry, pi, and basic algebra. We’ve made sure that every lesson learned running a Makelangelo will give a student the experience they need to tackle harder subjects later.

The Makelangelo can also run MIT’s Scratch routines.  Students learn about programming while they’re making algorithmic art.
