I will also add that I am drawing at relatively low speed.
Sorry yes it is the same as the user guide – been a long week :-).
Yes I removed the pen clip last time but probably didn’t tighten them enough.
All good tips there Windell, will try if and when they loosen again.
I see you have an optimisation tips page on wiki, might be worth adding a general tips page which summarises things on the forum.
Thanks again and good luck with the machine.
It didn’t. How do I post a pic? Cheers
It’s the screws behind the pen holder. Not the black screws on the actual holder, it’s the silver screws that holds the holder in place. It’s actually different looking than the user guide. Hope the pic below works.
Worked great Windell, thanks so much. I think the small gap with horn and metal helped enormously.
One more thing. Would you know why the two screws behind the pen holder keep coming loose? It’s the two screws that, when tightening, the pen holder has to come off for easy access. The ones that connect the metal to plastic. thanks.
Will let you know how I get on following your advice when I get chance to try them out.
Thank you very much :-).
Any pointers as to what to set it too?
The servo is working fine Lenore although I did initially have to tighten two screws near it as the mount was wobbling about.
What I meant was, for example, if I was to draw a straight line left to right then at the end of the line on the right the pen lifts fractionally too slowly causing slight pooling of the ink. Now if the pen lifted up quicker or even just before the line had finished that would be a great help to me?
The juddering is a separate issue really which is virtually resolved by plotting at 15-20 speed.
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.
