The act of picking up a pen/pencil and doodling stuff defines an artist (both aspiring and renowned), but over the years, the creations of a pen have been limited to just paper.
Now, with advancing technology, engineers have come up with a new tool for artists, a 3D-printing pen.
It lets you bring your creations to life, like literally.
Here's how it works.
3D printing, which is the action of making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, has long been used by engineers and researchers.
The tech is still in development but has evolved so much that you can draw up 3D stuff using a pen made by 3Doodler.
It lets you scribble and print your creation into a physical, tangible form in real-time.
3Doodler's 3D-printing pen works just like a normal one.
However, instead of filling the pen with ink, you'd have to fill its drive with plastic, which heats instantly, letting you create any real-life shape or figurine of your choice.
Also, it's worth noting that the pen comes with a dual-drive system, which prevents jamming issues and keeps the plastic flowing.
The 3D-printing pen from 3Doodler also comes with dedicated functions to match different illustration styles.
You get one-touch start/stop buttons as well as controls to adjust the flow speed and heating temperatures.
Notably, this will help you create stuff with various types of plastics, be it different colors or plastic types, and styles of doodling.
You can get 3Doodler's pen with 15 different color refills at a price tag of $79, which is nearly Rs. 5,500 in India.
Now, that is a pretty nice deal, but if you're looking for other 3D-printing pen options, there's also 3Doodler Create+ Master Creator 3D Pen Set that comes at $149 and a kid-friendly Start Mega 3D Printing Pen Set, priced at $99.
