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).
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).
A minimalist Maker and Designer of arguably pointless things. :)
