When I discovered the world of polargraph I was amazed. I built my own and started experimenting, drawing and plotting different images. But the control software was rough, unfriendly, slow. I wanted to experiment directly, write code for a drawing, and watch it appear in unpolishhed, wet ink. So I built Melt, as a cleaner and more direct interface to the Polargraphs.
Melt is a tool that I built and shared for prototyping and direct drawing, a way to move from code to paper quickly and directly.
