    Hey all! I'm looking to create a large-format plotter with the Acro 1510 system, but I'm not sure what mechanism I'd like to use for the pen-up/pen-down function. Any suggestions? I was thinking some sort of servo, or a design with a rail system for the pen to rest on the paper. Any suggestions are helpful! Thanks!

    Do a search for “egg bot”. Several of them had a decent pan grip/servo actuator combo.

    How would I be able to connect a servo motor if I use the Black Box Motion Controller?

    Docs.openbuilds.com/blackbox has instructions for Servo see OpenBuilds BlackBox 4X Documentation

    Support for Servos inside CAM will be launched next week or week after
