  • A device that allows secure attachment of a pen or marker to a CNC device such as a FDM 3D Printer
  • Can be used as a PCB Plotter or as a basic printer for documents and drafting
  • Main Designs:
    • VERY simple: tape it to the fdm extruder toolhead
    • Simple: 3d printed adapter holder with no pressure relief
    • Standard: use rubber band or cheap slides etc to allow it to have some "give" to it preventing it from stabbing your printer, and making bed leveling easier
    • Advanced: Add some sort of encoding mechanism (how "pressed in" is it), and/or a solenoid for pulsing it in high resolution dot matrix modes
