Pen making enhancement

Has anybody got a way to use the Nomad to inscribe and/or decorate hand turned pens? It seems like I could do this without using a 4th axis, right?

You could sort of do it — results wouldn’t be optimal — try modeling it in 3D and I believe you’ll get a better idea of the limitations.

There’s a bit on adding a 4th axis to a Shapeoko here: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Upgrade_Overview#Additional_Axis — should be similar for a Nomad.
