I tried a spring design. It kept getting stuck. Then I tried this and it worked so much better. I used it in the second half of my short video at https://youtu.be/j_V-aXOoPBY. You can see with my first test with the other design that I had to keep adjusting the marker. I don't think you even see my hand once in the second half using this design. I used PetG to make it because of how flexible it is.

This works quite well. thanks!

High five!

Drop some pictures of your projects in the forums so I can share them.

"High fives back" I will soon.
I just need to build the table before doing much more than testing. The mpcnc is currently sitting on the carpet. lol
I did draw Mario on paper that was taped to glass I had taken from an old Epson printer. It worked well as a temporary flat surface.
I'm doing something different with the table so I will defiantly post that in the forms too when it's done.

This pen holder is genius! Using the flex in the plastic instead of a more complicated design using springs is a great idea.

An On The Run marker? overkill no? lol

It's a good marker for making bold statements. Quickly, hahaha.
