Two New Accessories for AxiDraw

We’ve just added two new accessories for the AxiDraw V3.

XL Pen Clip

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.

Both the XL Pen Clip and the Italic Pen Adapter are in stock at the Evil Mad Scientist shop. They join the Rigid End Effector and Tripod Mount on our AxiDraw Accessories page.
