Digital Spin Art
a Photoshop script that starts a servo and rotates your canvas as you draw.
Using Arduino and Node.js.
When I was little I had a spin art machine. You put your paper on a rotating base, and as it rotated (very fast), you would drizzle or drop paint.
This guy created the effect in real life, with a giant canvas and a lot of paint and precision:
For more info on Generator and using node with Arduino, see this post.
Set up Generator using this tutorial.
Download my code.
Add the ‘nodebot’ folder to the plugins folder.
Navigate to the generator-core and activate plug-ins with this command:
node app.js -v -f ../plugins
Go to Photoshop and check File>Generate . Do you see ‘rotate canvas’ in a strange font? Click!
The canvas should rotate. Also, if you have a servo hooked up to an arduino on pin 10, it will start!
