Improvements 1: pen holder

In the MDF version of the plotter, most pieces were made by hand using a back saw. This was a convenient way to do it at the time, but it the precision was a bit lacking. I've started to design patterns to cut pieces using a lasercutter and assemble them into better versions of the handmade originals.

First up was the pen holder. The original pen holder and carrier showed play in different places, so making a better pen holder/carrier combination was the highest priority.
