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 am 17 years old and I started with 3D printing in March of 2017. This all started with some inspiration and motivation, which came from school and youtube videos. I own the Anet A8, which I feel all beginners should start with. It teaches you much more about 3D printing than just buying a pre-assembled one. My current interests include robotics, programming, designing, laser cutting and of course…3D printing.
