    I find that with some pens and combinations of print speed, I get a Blob of ink (especially with new Sharpie markers on art paper.) it would be useful to adjust the delay between the Pen-Down command and the next move. Not sure where this delay is set. Can anyone point me at this? Happy to make the change in my local copy of the code to experiment with it.

    There is the pen up and pen down speed in settings > pen… there shouldn’t be a delay other than that.

    Does this help?

    Hi Dan,

    Allso, can the speed that the servo move be changed? When lifting the pen it’s very fast causing the whole mechanism to bounce,

    Thanks!

    Yes!

    In settings > pen > lift speed. lower number, slower servo. What number works best for you?
