With a round piece of thick paper or card, 73 LEGO pieces, a LEGO motor and power pack, and a bit of blue tack to keep the paper in place, this very small LEGO machine will create spirograph drawings.

MOC designer nathansonic built the machine and created this Another Channel video to help demonstrate the simple build. Their free instructions can be found in a BrickLink Studio file on Rebrickable.
