This paper presents a distributed multi-robot printing method which utilizes an optimization approach to decompose and allocate a printing task to a group of mobile robots. The motivation for this problem is to minimize the printing time of the robots by using an appropriate task decomposition algorithm. We present one such algorithm which decomposes an image into rasterized geodesic cells before allocating them to the robots for printing. In addition to this, we also present the design of a numerically controlled holonomic robot capable of spraying ink on smooth surfaces. Further, we use this robot to experimentally verify the results of this paper.
