World’s Smallest 3D-Printing Pen Is Coming to Kickstarter

Humans are accustomed to drawing in the air. We gesture with our hands when talking and will try to illustrate charade secrets by “drawing” objects in space. 3D-printing pens takes those gestures, makes them tangible and, in the hands of an artists, beautiful. Recent 3D-printing pens have been cool, but clunky affairs. LIX Pen, however, is something different. It’s light, small and apparently needs no more power than you can draw from your run-of-the-mill laptop. Now it’s coming to Kickstarter.

Measuring 6.45 inches long, 0.55 inch in diameter and weighing just 1.23 ounces, the aluminum 3D-printing pen (which also comes in black) really is pen sized. You hold it just like a pen, and plug a 3.5mm-like jack into the base and the other end of your cable into your computer. The juice allows LIX to heat to over 300-degrees Fahrenheit, though the plant-based PLA filament (it can also use the stronger ABS plastic) only needs to heat to 180-degrees to work. That filament is fed in through a hole in the base and emerges as a super-heated liquid on the tip so you can start doodling in the air.

What happens when a girl enters a party wearing a 15-foot-long cardboard Velociraptor costume? She gets a lot of attention. And she wins the costume contest. Now she’s Kickstarting a project based on her design.

While Lisa Glover’s original costume design is not yet…

Paper Model: Paper model of panelized serial knot medial surface

These studies explore geometric and parametric control as a generator of form. Acknowledging that factors of economy and efficiency frequently require construction to rely on flat-packed raw materials, some of these studies consider the ability of flat panels to translate into complex surfaces, while others take advantage of digital fabrication techniques such as 3D printing.
