Received my Axidraw yesterday, very excited to unbox it and get going. Setup, tried to run on a mac to no avail! Overtime I tried to open Inkscape, the Quarkx programme would open over the top, and couldn't get around it. OK, moved on to Windows, got something going there.
Used the Hershey Text to run a simple 'test' (with just the word) test.
What happened was a mix of loud vibrations, so much so that the contact with the paper just produced really jagged lines. It also did not map the text properly, but more did one letter, then overlaid the next letter sort of on top and to the side slightly, then moved down slightly. It didn't even align each letter, so the T was more like |_
Finally, once the divide had 'finished' plotting, it would just stop in position (pen raised) but did not return to the home location.
Any help or advice where I might be going wrong would be much appreciated.
