Did you 3D print this model?

3D model description

Update: The STP file is now provided for anyone who wishes to 'remix a remix'. ;)
Another Remix for the "D.I.D. - Scalable Pen Plotter". As always all the credit must go to the original designer.

This part is a remix of the original pen/tool holder. I will list the main changes below:

Support for a generic 11.5mm drag knife. (This is the most common vinyl cutter found all over Amazon and AliExpress, they're usually misrepresented as 11 or 12mm in product descriptions).
Zip-Tie support to tension elastic band.
Set Screw for levelling the holder. (This is to help make the knife run parallel to the cutting base).
Adjusted/improved tolerances.

While this should still work with the official X Carriage I recommend using my remixed version. This should help avoid binding issues with the two meshing parts. The remixed version can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3879341

For reference to anyone who may be confused with the supported drag knife version, here is a link to the exact product I purchased: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07PF7W5VD/

International item shipping is available from AliExpress. This should be exactly the same as the product described above: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32768951705.html
(In the fear of stating the obvious please keep in mind I have no experience purchasing from that seller, I cant guarantee success).

While I personally don't like the look of the part's current geometry, its made more for function. This was only intended as a so called 'quick fix' as my understating is the original project designer is planning on creating a vinyl cutting add on themselves sometime in the future. (Please do correct me if i'm wrong).
