How does this print?
The 3D Former Printing Pen uses 1.75mm thick ABS or PLA filament to create whatever your imagination dreams up. The 3D Former uses filament instead of ink to create your design, and allows it to move your designs off the paper and create three-dimensional shape. Your designs will have different flexibility and finish depending on the material you draw with.

How easy is the 3D Former to use?
This printing pen is easy to use and comes with everything you need – including a mains power supply, 1.75mm ABS filament and 0.5mm nozzle. Simple plug the 3D pen in, wait for the LED to turn green and insert a filament. If you want to change filament type, just unload the filament and replacing it with the new one. The pen has multiple continuous speeds to choose from between 0.5mm/s and 20mm/s.

What other features does the 3D Former have?
With its light weight of just 60g and variable speeds, this pen gives you great control of every action. After three minutes idling the pen automatically goes into standby mode. The ceramic filament-clogging avoidance nozzle helps prevent blocking, which can make you slow down or stop. Whether you want to freely create in the air or use stencils and then attach them together – the only limit to your creations with this 3D pen is your imagination.
