What is a Mechanical Drawing Plotter?

Mechanical Drawing Plotters are a type of machine that automatically draws accurate drawings by means of a pen or any instrument you like. In the past, mechanical drawing plotters were used as a drafting tool to produce quick drawings and sketches, but as technology evolved, they've become more sophisticated and could be made by yourself. As a result, they have been adopted by many artists as a valuable tool for producing high-quality drawings quickly and efficiently. I will share some of my examples.
