How is the control for the pen action axis? Can the height be set or is a binary function?

Im asking because im wondering if this project could be combined with a needle cutter like for example

for the purpose of precisely cutting and scoring foam board, with the intent of easily making RC planes, among other things.

Improved Needle Cutter

That would be pretty cool. It is controlled by the servo, so can be set to any angle (thus height). The downfall would be that the down force is gravity. Any extra pressure on the pen causes loss of traction on the wheels.

You've effectively 3D printed a 2D printer. I'm not exactly sure why I find this so amusing.

It is turtles all the way down . . .
