Drawbot (XY Plotter) X-Axis Carriage & Pen Lift Mechanism (Linear Actuator)

more info here soon

I used the servo gear and "rack" gear elements from artichoke's "Linear actuator for mini servo (11-20gr)" design found here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:896781 and my pen holder found here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1339880

03MAR16- Major revision to all these parts and more will be posted soon. I had issues with my bearing holder so I switched back to the metal encased bearing blocks that came with the XY Plotter from Makeblock.
