The DOODLEBOT is the winner of the 2017 LEGO MINDSTORMS Remix Challenge and was built with a mix of elements from the popular LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 (31313) and LEGO Technic Extreme Adventure (42069) sets.
Use the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® DOODLEBOT to draw your own artistic doodles – or set it in self-portrait mode for a drawing of itself, by itself. Place paper under the robot, position a pen in its arms, and use the EV3 remote to draw your own fanciful works of art. The robot comes preprogrammed with three different drawing modes.

How to build it
Download the free LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 software to access the building instructions and program needed to build the DOODLEBOT (recommended). When you open the EV3 software, click on the Robot Remix tab at the bottom, select the DOODLEBOT, and you’re good to go.
You can also download the building instructions in PDF format and download the EV3 programming software later. You’ll need to transfer the premade programs from the EV3 software to the DOODLEBOT’s P-brick to get it to work.
