First off, let me say that for Father's day we built the WaterColorBot as a 3-generational team and it was an absolutely FANTASTIC thing to do for that particular holiday.
OS: Windows 7
Software: StippleGen 2
Second, it's nothing short of amazing. It's as mesmerizing as the EggBot, but potentially even more-so because of its ability to make use of multiple colors. It's a hoot to watch it paint a masterpiece with elegance and poise. Truly a magnificent creation!
Alright, I have been messing with StippleGen and encoding several images to stipple out (Judy Garland came out wonderfully).
The one thing I'd like to get working is a plot of the "path-file" that can be generated from within StippleGen2. When I try to plot it, the WaterColorBot goes to the bottom-right corner (after being homed in the upper-left corner from which other stipple/dot plots and watercolors have successfully run) and then just draws dead-vertical lines along the right-limited-margin. It's confusing. It even acts as if it's trying to drive the X motor beyond its stop at the end.
I was wondering if you've seen this before, if the "path" file is even intended to be plotted, and whether there might be a solution you would recommend.
