Draw solid ob­jects in the air with a pen

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - 3D TECHNOLOGY -

Writ­ing and draw­ing in the air is now pos­si­ble with LIX – a 3D print­ing pen that’s so small and smart that does not re­quire pa­per.

The pen en­ables you to doo­dle in the air. You can make any­thing out of it within just a few seconds. Some ex­am­ples in­clude words, ac­ces­sories, dec­o­ra­tion pieces, art and crafts for kids, artis­tic jew­ellery, pro­to­types, and dif­fer­ent forms of draw­ings.

Es­sen­tially, the LIX 3D print­ing pen func­tions sim­i­larly to 3D prin­ters. It quickly melts and cools coloured plas­tic, let­ting you cre­ate rigid and free­stand­ing struc­tures – just by draw­ing them in the air.

Some­thing in­ter­est­ing about this light­weight, en­gi­neered pen is that struc­tures can be formed in any shape. Ex­pe­ri­ence the plea­sure of three di­men­sions and make your imag­i­na­tion a re­al­ity.

This pen fits per­fectly in your hand, giv­ing you ex­treme com­fort and bal­ance while you draw with it. LIX is highly por­ta­ble with its small size. Its smaller size (Height: 6.45inch/164mm - Di­am­e­ter: 0.55inch/14mm) has made it an ideal 3D print­ing pen for all those who want to give their cre­ative skills a try.

LIX is made from alu­minum, and com­prises of trendy colours, such as black matte and grey matte.

The pen has been de­vel­oped by An­ton Su­vorov, Is­mail Baran and Del­phine Eloise Wood, and is ex­pected to sell for around US$140.

The LIX pen al­lows you to ‘draw’ plas­tic in the air, and two prod­ucts made with an LIX 3D.
