Recently the pen holder on my drawing machine had broke. After thinking about it, I saw that it could use a redesign. I believe this pen holder will work much better for people making this machine. It uses an M3 screw to hold the pen in place. What makes this pen holder different from the original:
Easier to print
Stronger than original pen holder
Combines two part into one (Less parts to print)
Prevents the pen from bending if tightened too much
Print as oriented in the file. Set supports to: Everywhere(Cura)
I have been 3D printing since March 2017 and I am 16 years old. I am interested in creating useful prints and home decor. I am also interested in computer programming. I am still a beginner/intermediate at CAD and a high school student, so I create designs during my leisure time. I got into 3D printing when my school started discussing and showing us their printers. At school we got some elite printers: The Prusa i3 mk2 and the Lulzbot Taz 5. I also got motivated by YouTube videos as well.
