A simple skeletal printable pen and cap designed around the 'Fisher Space Pen' refill cartridge (about $6 at most office supply places).
I have included two caps, one designed to clip on short stacks of paper and one designed to clip onto 'Moleskine' type sketch books.

Are you supposed to pause at 50% and insert the ink cartridge? I got a good print laying it on it's side and using a raft but the tip end broke from trying to insert the ink.

What settings did you use? I got about 1/3 of the way before the print failed from the pen wobbling too much, even with a raft. The Fisher Space Pen ink doesn't fit in the tip that did print.

Cool, makes me wonder if this approach could work for a clicky-pen like thing.

Tried retracting pens before http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:87281http://www.thingiverse.com/thi..., but didnt quite work out. The clicky versions were hard to get, so they didnt wobble, the rotating ones hard to figure the friction right, and openscad had some issues. Maybe i should give it another shot..
