(03-21-2020 10:25 AM)LOlsen Wrote:  I did a hardcoded work-a-round for slowing the servo down, code is below for anyone interested:

void PenDown(int intPenDownPos){
int intCurrentPos = penServo.read();
for (int i = intCurrentPos; i >= intPenDownPos; i--) {
penServo.write(i);
delay(8);
}
}

void PenUp(int intPenUpPos){
int intCurrentPos = penServo.read();
for (int i = intCurrentPos; i <= intPenUpPos; i++) {
penServo.write(i);
delay(8);
}
}


Replace the four calls to "penServo.write" with these functions. Speed is controlled by the Delay function. This works for my setup where Pen Up value is lower than Pen Down. If your setup is different, you need to change the logic of the two functions.
Good luck :-)

Thanks for this Lars. Jose is struggling to come back to UK from the USA and did not have time to take a look at this.
We will test your mod.
