Four point five hours down, ninety minutes to go. There’s a limit to how fast you can push a fountain pen around.

@smerp Are the motors steppers or with the velocity controller by voltage, like old plotters? I'd think with the first you would get jaggies and the second would require serious math.

@Tipa both! Stepper motors with microstep drivers for very high resolution, and fancy velocity and acceleration control to keep things smooth.

@Clifford document it with a good photo later, then put it in storage until a show or someone buys it. Cheers!
