We’ve just added two new accessories for the AxiDraw V3.
The first of them, shown above, is the XL Pen Clip — something that we’ve had a number of requests for. The pen holder on the AxiDraw normally fits pens and other instruments up to 5/8″ (16 mm) in diameter. However, this new XL pen clip can hold instruments up to 1″ (25.4 mm) in diameter.
That is to say, it can hold things like this freaking huge marker:
The second new accessory is a little more subtle: an Italic Pen Adapter that gives the AxiDraw a “right handed” grip on pens.
It’s a little bracket of anodized aluminum, with captured screws and threaded inserts, which rotates the AxiDraw pen clip 45° out from the X-axis of the AxiDraw. This angle can give a slightly more “natural” look to certain types of handwriting-like plotting.
And of course, it’s ideal for use with various types of blunt-tipped pens, including chisel-point felt tip pens as well as pens with stub and italic nibs.
