It is an all-new version of the AxiDraw, redesigned from the ground up for high performance. It features smooth rolling wheels on custom aluminum extrusions, specially designed for high stiffness and light weight. Its sturdy, rigid construction gives it finer quality output and in most applications allows it to operate at up to twice the speed of the previous AxiDraw.

It features a new, highly repairable, field-serviceable design for a long life. While no parts on AxiDraw require regular replacement, this new machine is built with a "screws not glue" design approach throughout, where essentially every part can be replaced by the end user if it should ever become necessary. The AxiDraw is an extremely versatile machine, designed to serve a wide variety of everyday and specialized drawing and writing needs. You can use it for almost any task that might normally be carried out with a handheld pen.

Wonderful Useful Device

Review by JohnD
General

I bought this machine to transcribe my original artwork onto Japanese vinyl (lino alerative) ready for manual cutting. I am extremely happy with the way it functions. It’s given my a whole new capability.

Thanks to RobotShop for expediting my order in a prompt and efficient manner. Very happy with the service. Arrived as per the estimated delivery time. Got it working very quickly.
