First set of prints

July 21, 2008

Today we made our first great set of prints. At first we had a real struggle with the sand robot. The robot was having problems sand-printing the beautiful geometric pattern farmer Martien made preparing his land with his tractor. In the end we made a track ourselves programming a similar but much more simplified pattern. The pattern should be completely 90 degrees angled, but came out slightly (ehh, very) different. But the result was fabulous.
