I love plotters and plotter art and if you’re into robots or other machines that draw, you should check out #PlotterTwitter and DrawingBots.net

While I’m still working on my new plotter (which is really an old HP7475A) I figured I’d have fun with Processing and write some code to generate some nice vector art. This is something I do every now and then. I’m someone who believes in writing code for pleasure. Some people are into that… I’m one of them.

I’ve also released this code in case someone else wants to generate some art for use with their own plotter or whatever device they have that can do something with it. (Like a laser cutter, for instance.) And yes, the sample images you see on the page were generated by the sketch. There are a few variables you can change to adjust things, like the spacing between circles, steps between circles inside of circles, and setting the limit on the smallest circle.

You can find the code on GitHub under Shape-Grid-Circles. If you do anything cool with it, I’d love to see the results!
