Drawing with 3D Pen to make the real object

Three-dimensional (3D) printer technology has been growing and more and more developed by various parties. The most recent innovation is a modification of a 3D printer into a 3D pen that could write in the air.

A team of London-based designers claim to have created the world's smallest 3D-printing pen – an anodised aluminium device called Lix that allows users to "doodle in the air" and called the 3Doodler. Someone could write a sentence or draw something in the air, then that is written or drawn into the real. Suppose want to draw a cube, draw a cube shape in the air, then it will be a real cube in three dimensions.

Lix asked for donations to the fund company for the innovative work, Kickstarter, and get the funds to create this 3D pen. Basically the pen that can draw a three-dimensional object has the same principle with a 3D printer. As reported by the Daily Mail on Friday, May 2, 2014.

The basic ingredients of the ink pens are objects of junk with a plastic base material that is included on the back end of the pen. While in the pen, a plastic that is inserted will be burned at a temperature of 150 degrees Celsius can be a viscous ink that dries quickly in the air. This pen has a 16.3 cm long, 1.4 cm in diameter, and weighs 34.9 grams. Made of aluminum and has a black and silver color variants.

3D pen can also be connected to USB on a computer. The 'object creator' pen will be sold with a price of U.S $140 (or approx Rp. 1.6 million) and go on sale next September 2014. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILY MAIL | DE ZEEN MAGAZINE]
