# How to get transformation between a camera and a CNC plotter?

I have a question about robot and camera calibration.

I have experience to calibrate btw 6DOF robot arm and hand-eye camera. But this time I should use a machine like CNC plotter. This machine can move only x and y directions and no rotation. I will set a camera under the machine. In this case, can I do calibration btw a cam and the machine? And also can I calculate transformation matrix btw them?

If anyone knows how to solve it please let me know. And if there are some papers about this, also let me know.

• Adding a 'thanks' section to a question is not required, we all tend to be thankful for the people helping us, and expect other people to be thankful too, so saying it just adds noise to the question and distracts people from the problem posed. It may seem counter intuitive, but excessive politeness can itself be impolite, as giving people extra text to read, even if they ignore it, is disrespectful of their time. – Mark Booth Sep 13 '19 at 10:51
• Welcome to Robotics, Soonmyun Jang. I'm not sure I understand your question. You said I have experience to calibrate btw 6DOF robot arm and hand-eye camera, but then go on to ask for help with a CNC plotter. If you've got experience with the 6 DOF system, what is the trouble you're having with a 2 DOF system? The problem you're trying to solve now is a simplified version of the problem you already have experience with. What's the trouble you're having? – Chuck Sep 13 '19 at 12:49
