What size surface can Scribit draw on?
Scribit can easily draw on a surface which is 2m wide, as long as it is at least 2 meter tall (the drawing area will start 50 cm below the superior edge).
How does Scribit erase its drawings?
Scribit has a little pod incorporated, which heats up to (149°F) 65°C. With the robot running across the design, the ink steadily disappears. This function is available just on drywall and standard plaster board. On other surfaces every Scribit marker is easily erasable by hands.
How big is the drawing area?
The maximum covered drawing area is currently 6'7" x 6'5" (2 meters x 2 meters, with 4 m distance between the nails).
What type of surfaces can Scribit work on?
Scribit can draw on any vertical surface: standard plaster, whiteboards, and glass are the perfect surfaces for Scribit. It can also draw on Cinder Block walls, depending on how thick the mortar lines are.
What type of paint can Scribit draw on?
Scribit can draw on any vertical surface which has a texture that is smooth enough for the tip of the marker to follow it, without big drops where the tip would lose contact.
Can Scribit work on canvas/paper?
Theoretically, Scribit can work on all smooth surfaces. On paper and canvas, it works perfectly as well, but these are not the surfaces it has been primarily designed for.
Can Scribit operate on a curved wall?
Will Scribit allow me to stitch multiple drawings together so that I can draw on a bigger area than 6'7" x 6'7" (2m x 2m)?
Theoretically, you will be able to compile as many drawings as you want. The difficulty will be to align them perfectly: as of now, Scribit’s software does not support that specific feature. However, we will be working on it!
Is it possible for Scribit to erase part of the drawing but leave the rest?
Currently, this is not possible by using the default erasing function of Scribit. However, there is always the option to use a wet rag/sponge to erase the part you want to get rid of and leave the rest of the drawing.
Can Scribit be moved from one wall to another?
Sure thing, Scribit can be installed in 5 minutes on a wall and then be moved to another wall. The only precondition that you will need to make sure is satisfied, is the type of surface that you will use Scribit on (see other FAQ).
Can Scribit be mounted with anything less permanent than nails?
Yes, this is possible. For simplicity purposes, the standard Scribit kit is designed to be used with 2 nails. However, you can be quite creative in this respect, as long as you triple check that Scribit is stable and safe: for the mounting you can use command strips, suction cups, etc.
Please mind Scribit weight about 2kg, but since it's a moving robot the weight force applied is a lot more at certain hights of your wall. Follow User Manual - First user in order to be sure you're selecting the correct support.
Do I have to measure the distance between the 2 nails?
Yes, the first time you use Scribit you will need to input the distance between the 2 nails and the floor.
Will Scribit work on painted walls?
Of course, Scribit can work on any wall, except for "tough" textures. Standard water paint is ok! If they are washable is better.
Will Scribit completely erase the marker/color, or will there be a buildup of "erased marker" on the wall?
The paint will evaporate during the erase phase, however, after numerous uses, it is recommendable that you use a wet rag/sponge to manually clean the wall.
Are there other ways to erase the marker from the wall?
Hair Dryer, wet rag/sponge.
