Hanging Pen Plotter

Post by Kaldonis » Wed Feb 04, 2015 12:01 am

I'm finally getting around to building this thing. See http://sktechworks.ca/2015/01/31/projec ... n-plotter/ for a bit of background.

Tonight was a good night. Got to try out my new pen gondola as well as the line guides and I'm pretty happy with both of them. I won't bore you too much with the details, but here are some photos showing the evolution of things throughout the night. Keep in mind that I haven't implemented the servo for lifting the pen yet for rapids.

Been doing quite a bit of work on this. Print quality isn't much better than last time I posted, but I've received my new stepper drivers and done quite a bit of software work. Here are some more photos.
