To teach myself more about electronics, as well as to finally step into the world of stepper-motors I would like to try to make a plotter. Since I don't know enough yet to completely design one from scratch, it will be build after Ben's PlottyBot as he did an excellent write-up on how he did his. It also has limiter-switches for homing and a servo that can move the pencil up and down, as well as an adjustable pen holder.

Right now this project is still in an "can I?" and "sourcing parts" state.
