LIX 3D-Printing Pen: 3D-Printer Technology In a Smaller Package

lix

As 3D printing is popularized throughout the printing industry, a new, fountain-pen-sized contender has joined the competition. Welcome LIX, the world’s most compact 3D-printing pen that enables doodlers to print in midair by quickly melting and cooling colored plastic. The aluminum pen, which is still in the prototype phase, is powered by a USB 3.0 port connection.

To begin sketching, artists simply insert a filament refill in one end and the thermoplastics melt upon reaching the nozzle at the opposite end, good for about two to five minutes of air-drawing. LIX works for everything from abstract sculpture art to fashionable T-shirt designs. This professional tool will push creativity to a whole new level.

To take your doodling to another dimension, join the Kickstarter campaign.
