Lix pen: Sleek 3D printing pen lets you create tangible 3D drawings
For those who want to go beyond the canvas to show off their 3D painting and rendering skills 3D printing has the apt answer. 3D Doodler 3D printing pen took the world by the storm as it gives creative artists a chance to showcase their skills, but it has one real downside, it was too big to hold and carry around. So it is time to introduce Lix 3D printing pen developed by Anton Suvorov which is sleek and very easy to handle while rendering 3D drawings and a viable answer for what 3D Doodler lacked. Slated as the smallest 3D pen so far, Lix is all set to rock Kickstarter in a few weeks’ time.
This 3D printing pen has support for both PLA and ABS materials, making it a very practical solution when it comes to materializing the ideas popping up in your head. The operation of this 3D printing pen is simple, you have feed the PLA or ABS filament from the top of the pen and once the heating element melts the material you can start making your 3D designs without any hassle.
Once the material leaves the nib of the 3D pen it cools instantly and sets in shape, making possible to draw vertical lines at an angle. You can control the amount of material being excreted by pressing the buttons on the side. To power up the heating element Lix 3D printing pen can be connected to a USB port of your computer.
Lix 3D pen will cost around $140 when it finally retails and will come in two color options: Black matte and White matte. You can also purchase the Lix ball pen which costs just $60 but will have limited features and won’t be able to create 3D printed illustrations.
