Well I had mine delivered yesterday – thanks Lenore. Been optimising it as best I can. Overall I’m happy with it.

One question. I use thick paint pens for artwork, how do I lift the pen at the end of a line to prevent it from ‘pooling’? Be nice if the pen could lift whilst still in the action of drawing.

I also get a bit of juddering, especially at the far reaches of the axis. Sounds like the pen is dragging – not a nice sound from the machine! This was mentioned in the guide. Any tips to lessen this? Settings and/or vibration reduction?

Appreciate your thoughts.
