This project was inspired by a commercial product called AxiDraw
It was a combination of reasons that made me consider to do it myself, cost, availability and customs playing a role in the equation that, and having a 3D printer at home
This is just a drawing machine quite similar a to a pen plotter but that can adapt to any size of document and any type of paper.
It can use regular felt-tip pens, ball pens or fountain pens as pen orientation is variable. It is a new version of an XY plotter using a single belt and two stepper motors in a configuration called h-bot.
