    Hello friends!
    I am trying to develop a drawbot. I' m ok with motors and stuff BUT i cannot find a pen holder. I searched on several sites with robotic parts but i didn't find anything..
    Any ideas before I try to make something custom?

    Thank you!

    Well.. this depends entirely on how you want it held?
    Spring loaded, or will you rely on gravity and the weight of the pen to draw...
    If neither you can simply use a bull-dog clip :p
    Consider which orientation you will be drawing in as well... you should have some sort of ideas.

    I was thinking to use bull-dog clip just to hold the canva..! :rolleyes:

    I'm about to develop a similar to the following project:

    What i want is to use a holder that can hold pens with different size. Not to be depented on a specific kind of pen...!

    Thank you!

    Also holds the pen pretty far from the writing end... I'm sure the pen will flex a lot while writing.
    If you want to be more accurate, fasten the pen closer to the writing end.
    A pen holder could be almost anything you can think of...
