The combination of glass surface and markers is very suitable for various SMB enterprises, owning shop windows. It allows for outstanding Scribit performance in terms of drawing visibility and markers durability.
If you wish to explore this option, you will need:
- Reliable and proper suction cups: please find the recommended by us solutions below the article.
- Special erasable glass markers - they must not require consistent nib pressure like the majority of the available products on the market do. Scribit Original Glass Markers have been designed specifically to address this issue.
Any standard cleaning product for glass and a damp cloth can help you to easy manually erase any drawing on your glass surface. If after such a manual erase you still see a ring, standard newspaper or paper towels will really help you to get your glass transparency fully back.
ALERT: Please note that automatic erasing by Scribit is not supported on glass surface and the erasing function could seriously damage your glass surface and pose a risk for people around. Scribit APP wouldn’t allow you to start erasing on glass if you have input the correct data.
It is essential that you remove the markers from the pen holders when the device is not drawing - that will significantly prolong their life. Put the markers inside Scribit just before launching a drawing, and remove them as soon as the design has been completed.
Marker life heavily depends on drawing size and complexity. As per our tests, a single Scribit Original Glass Marker is able to cover more than 250mt/820 feet.
A worn-out marker could be reactivated by keeping it for at least 48 hours upside down. Of course, the reactivation is not always guaranteed because it is strictly related to how many metres the marker has already performed with your Scribit. Our marker packaging can help you track your markers’ life - flip the already used markers to mark them.
Please note that your glass surface should be 2.10 square metres of size - the 10 additional cm are usually required for the suction cups size.
Please always consider the outdoor environment - if too hot it might affect the markers durability and the suction cups reliability.
“Liquid chalk” and “Neon” are some common terms for the glass markers available on the market. Every marker that fits your pen holder could be an option. Note however that most of the other brands’ solutions require nib pressure, which is difficult to achieve with Scribit, thus Scribit Original Glass markers, being specifically designed for the robot are best suited for it.
Please be advised that in your Scribit starter kit we have provided you with different marker adapters to enable you to use almost any marker of your choice.
When choosing a glass marker, the most important quality that you should look for is the balance between drying quickly and maintaining a good ink flow. If ink dries too slowly, when Scribit passes over the already drawn lines, there is the possibility that the lines will be smeared. Glass surface is often exposed to multiple and variable changes of temperature, thus the constant and well balanced ink flow of the marker is very important so that the variable indoor/outdoor environment doesn’t affect so much the drawing quality.
Please consider to use the suction cup tested and suggested by Scribit in order to get a safe installation on your glass surface https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K75F3CR/ref=twister_B07K75RWND?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
