Which Makelangelo is right for you?
The Makelangelo 5 is the best value and easiest machine to use. Follow our setup instructions and you can be drawing in about 5 minutes. This is the machine we recommend for nearly everyone.
The Makelangelo 3 is can be extended for largest pictures. We’ve done 3′ x 6′ (1m x 2m) drawings on a 4′ x 8′ machine. Some have done larger.
The Makelangelo 2 is a best price machine. It is much slower and has fewer features but it still works. We no longer make the 2.
