AxiDraw MiniKit


AxiDraw MiniKit - Pen-drawing AxiDraw functionality with a smaller footprint and in kit form!

Out of stock



Following in the footsteps of the original AxiDraw, the AxiDraw Mini functions much the same, but with the following exceptions:

  • It's a kit. It's made with excellent quality materials & documentation, so putting it together yourself saves you some money and gives you a fun afternoon putting it together yourself
  • It's smaller. It draws on a smaller 150x100mm (~6x4") footprint, and is more compact, storable, and transportable than a standard AxiDraw.

Other than that, you use the same software and methodologies as with the full-size AxiDraw. That means it still is cross-platform compatible using Inkscape on Windows, Mac or Linux.

The Kit Includes:

  • All the parts to construct the AxiDraw MiniKit writing and drawing machine.
  • Universal power supply, with North-American style plug
  • USB cable
  • Small Easel & clips

Tools Required:

  • Scissors / diagonal cutters

  • Small flat-head screwdriver (2mm, or 5/64")
  • Recommended: Miniature pliers
  • Recommended: Small hobby knife
