Pen Writer/holder

Does anybody out there have any advice on settings, pressure, toolpaths, etc. for using the CNC pen holder/writer that I got from Rockcliff a while ago ?? I believe I have some ideas for applications for this gadget, but I could use some start-up procedure advice. Any help is appreciated ..... John
