What is Pen Plotting?

Pen plotting is a method of creating physical drawings or illustrations using a computer-controlled pen or marker. Imagine a robotic arm equipped with a pen that can move in various directions across a piece of paper. This arm is controlled by a computer, which follows specific instructions to create intricate and precise drawings.

To create a pen plot, you start with a digital file that contains the design or image you want to reproduce. This file is usually created using graphic design software or other drawing programs. The computer then translates the digital information into a series of commands that control the movement of the pen on the paper. It's a versatile and precise method, where accuracy and repeatability are crucial. The appeal of pen plotting lies in its ability to bring digital designs into the physical realm with a hands-on, mechanical touch.
