①②:Reserve a reasonable space.Move the carriage by hand.

7.Fixed pen

7.1 Pen choice

Good choices for pens include fountain pens, permanent markers, rollerball pens, technical pens, (small-bodied) whiteboard markers, liquid chalk markers, and other writing and drawing instruments that do not require significant pressure.While we refer to writing and drawing instruments as “pens” to be concise, other instruments such as automatic pencils, chalk, charcoal, and brushes can also work well in many cases.

7.2 Setting the pen angle

The pen may be mounted vertically or at about 30°~ 45° to the paper by mounting the Pen Clip in either the vertical or angled position.

To detach the pen clip, loosen and remove the M3 screw on the front of the pen clip.using the 2.5 mm hex wrench. The angled position is optimal for use with fountain pens, but will work well with most rollerball and fine point markers. The vertical position is more suited to markers with fatter tips or writing instruments that require more downward pressure.

7.3 Inserting a pen

You can insert a pen – or other writing instrument that you are using – into the pen clip and tighten it in place with the thumbscrew.Take care to only apply gentle force with the thumbscrew: You need merely to immobilize the pen, so stop turning once you encounter moderate resistance.

The vertical position of your pen should be approximately 3 - 10 mm above the surface of the paper. You can physically adjust the position of the pen with the thumbscrew.

8. Work-holding

Whatever workpiece the T-2039 is to write or draw upon – whether that is paper, wood, or cookies – needs to be reasonably fixed in place so that it does not move while plotting.

8.2 Printing on small workpieces

Papers, such as A4/A5 paper, letter,envelopes, postcards, certificates, invitations, etc., can be used in a variety of ways, and everything around you can be used for fixing. For example: Clip easel,painters tape,stone,metal pieces,wood ,even the mobile phone. Similar to various notebooks, must be fixed with clips.

9. Positioning your paper With your pen at the origin(above), and the pen at an appropriate height, it is time to position the paper with respect to the T-2039. The printable area starts at the origin, and extends upper and to the right from that point.
