Long time DIY CNC hobbyist and I’ve had my Onefinity up and running for a couple weeks now. Mostly just to see if I can do it, I want to plot some huge wiring diagrams, so I’ve been playing with ways of attaching a bunch of clicky-top pens to the machine and bumping them into a fixed post to select which one to draw with. It’s still rough, but as of tonight, it is basically functional.
The plastic bits:
G-code generation library: (Handles the pen changes among other things not related to this projects)
- Moving the fixed post to the right-side Y-rail to support multiple rows in the pen magazine as well as getting out of the way of homing.
- Support for full-size (current are UltraFine) clicky-top Sharpies – will require rework of the magazine.
- SVG support in pygdk…or figuring out how to inject pen changes into Inkscape’s gcode generation – haven’t played around with that at all yet.
