Pen holder to fit in place of laser
« on: December 15, 2017, 03:19:47 PM »
Anyone got plans for a simple pen holder to fit the Eleksmaker carriage, servo operated and maybe 3d printable.

While on the subject what size servo will i need and voltage to connect to mana SE servo connector.

TIA

I thought about building one.... then decided it wasnt worth the time since eleksmaker sells one for $9.99

if you really want to 3d print one... maybe try this https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2619412
Laser: 2500mw A5 eleks maker
OS: Windows 10 all in one pc
Software: T2

I was looking at that but they want 16.50 postage, i have the z-axis addon but its not fixed on yet, wonder if that would be quick enough to lift while drawing, i still need to get the 3 axis board too, thats why its not fitted.  I'm still mucking about trying the different options in T2Laser and cardboard/paper but I haven't had time to really get into it. Prbably over the christmas holls I'll have more time.
