Drawing Machine [MaxMSP, Processing]

For the past four years Harvey Moon has been building a Drawing Machine, a mechanical robot that takes commands from a computer in order to draw onto the wall. Many (here and here) have done a similar device in the past, what gives Harvey's machine uniqueness is the algorithm that translates the image into drawing path. He has two machines in the works currently. Both of the machines are using the same hardware components but very different software code. He now needs your help, to make this machine a viable open source alternative to current plotting/milling/cutting solutions. He intends to release all plans, code and help to anyone who wants to build one themselves! If there is enough interest, he will also print PCB's and make kits for the masses!
