The base product offered is the "TinyCNC Maker Kit". This kit contains everything (excluding plastic parts
) to make EITHER the Mug-O-Matic OR the Desktop Sentry robot. You will need to 3d print your own parts to complete the robot.
I offer the option to upgrade and the add plastic parts so you can make either the "Sentry Complete Kit" or the "Mug-O-Matic Complete Kit". Assembly will still be required.
*Shipping anywhere in US is included in the price as shown!

Open Source Reconfigurable Robots for Learning STEM
The TinyCNC collection are a one of a kind educational maker toys!
Mug-O-Matic is a 3-axis drawing robot that can customize coffee mugs! This capable little robot can draw anything you want via manual control, bluetooth, calculated algorithms, or even g-code. So you can enjoy your custom mug creation, then wipe it clean. You could make it totally different every day for a year, and not make the same thing twice!
Its little buddy, the Desktop Sentry is a pan-tilt turret that guards your desk! Also controlled via joystick, bluetooth, algorithms, or g-code, this device can automatically guard your space with a laser or a rubbeband launcher! It can also be used for light wrighting.
The intent of the project is to produce a fun and accessible educational tool. One that encourages people to engage in tinkering and making things because those activities are powerful ways to learn.
To best serve that purpose these robots are designed with hackable open source hardware and are controlled by free open source software. Building this bot offers an opportunity to experiment with 3D printing of software such as Processing, Repetier Host, Slic3r, and of course Arduino - the most common and universally applicable microcontroller for physical computing. Knowledge gained playing with this toy is transferable to many other real life applications!
The kits offered are self sufficient and contain all the hardware & tools necessary. No soldering or bread-boarding is required, controls are plug-&-play. And like all EngineerDog.com projects it is well supported with online instructions & videos.
These are real tiny CNC tools in a fun size package that allow you to make your own custom creations! What will you make?
