Intro: How to Make Homemade Cookies With Drawing Robot
Homemade cookie is one of the best choices when preparing for a party or big dinner with friends or families. Creative cookies based on customized shapes impress people much more. However, even though you have the high quality pancake machine, you can't bake the cookies as per different demands. Today, i would like to share the way to make homemade cookies to meet all visitors' needs with mDrawbot step by step.
Step 1: Prep Ingredients
Bowl (or any other containers)
Mixer (or chopsticks)
Step 2: Hardware and Tools
DC Motor Connector
Step 3: Software
Step 4: 1. Mix All Prep Ingredients in a Container With Mixer
Based on different favors, you can add something like salt,
butter, honey, almond powder and more to your cookie. Mix it with suitable water.
Step 5: 2. Set Up Your MScara on the Table First
Step 6: 3. Lengthen Tube of Peristaltic Pump and Connect With DC Motor Connector
Step 7: 4. Mount Peristaltic Pump to the Top of MScara With Screw M4*8 and Nuts
Step 8: 5. Fasten the Tube With a Plate 3*6, Screw M4*4 and Nuts
Step 9: 6. Connect MScara to PC
Step 10: 7. Download and Install MDraw, Double Click to Start It and Click Connect
Step 11: 8. Adjust the Arm B Length After Measured the Length From Point a to B With Ruler
Step 12: 9. Power on (red Lights On) MScara
Step 13: 10. Pick Up Laser Status on MDraw, Enable Laser Mode
Step 14: 11. Drag the Power Percentage to Test Peristaltic Pump
You will feel the high speedy rotation directly with buzz sound
Step 15: 12. Test With Some Water Before Use Mixed Cookie Ingredients
Make sure the water flow without any bubbles
Before try the cookie ingredients, you need to clean all waters in tube first. (Just lift the source tube head, it will flush all water to tube end automatically as long as the Peristaltic pump running)
Step 16: 13. Drag the Power Percentage to 0 to Stop Peristaltic Pump and Click the Home Button to Default Position
Step 17: 14. Try With Some Simple and Small SVG File
You can open the default library and choose test file
Adjust the width and height of SVG image to make it easier to control
Step 18: 15. Let’s Start From a Square Cookie
This square cookie looks bad because of too many blanks
Step 19: 16. Adjust Power, Speed and Flour Thickness to Get Perfect Homemade Cookies
Failed cookies may happen if your power percentage is too
high, which results in vibration.
It also can be caused by high speed, which leaves few time for mixed fluid ingredients to merge with other parts when there is any blank line.
If the flour is too thin, the cookies’ shape may be deformed, try to add more flour if the shape looks different much from the SVG file on mDraw
P.S. don’t forget to click the home button to default position when you adjust any parameters
Step 20: 17. Make Personal Cookies by Creating a Special SVG File With Inkscape
Download and install Inkscape, double click to launch
Use the left tool bar to create any cookies you like – different words, different shapes
Go View – Display Mode - Outline
Save as normal SVG file
Then upload it to mDraw to make cookies following the outline
Step 21: 18. What If You Want to Make a Solid Cookie?
Press Ctrl+D+9 keyboards at the same time to make it solid
Because all lines are drawn by liquid flour ingredient mixer, it allows some space between lines, you can delete some lines.
Step 22: 19. Adjust Power, Speed and Flour Thickness Again to Get Perfect Homemade Cookies
Step 23: Conclusion
All in all, actually with mScara, you can try more colors with different ingredients like green vegetables, carrots or try more shapes like animals, even smile faces and more! Party is on, what are you waiting for?
