It’s a reverse engineering of their scara.ino and mDraw v1.1 python from Github (Aug.25,2015 commit) available at The Makeblock mDrawBot kit is available in many Barnes & Nobles stores now and at the same price as mail order (even cheaper if you are a B&N member!) This document's purpose is to provide a guide for creating alternative programs to mDraw, the program that it normally used with mScara, such as linux command line tools or interconnection to other CNC type plotter programs. Note that since mScara isn’t an X/Y Plotter, the coordinates require conversion to the arm coordinates to correct for distortion, same as your brain has to do to control your hand. This is done in the scara.ino software, but could require you to fine tune X/Y coordinates sent to mScara to account for distortion. This guide and several example python programs are available from GitHub at. ChickBot - the fully functional low-cost robot by Nick McCloud.
