3D printing pens were an exciting, even thrilling, idea when they first appeared on the market. And then more of them appeared. And still more. Here's another. Resist the urge to yawn, because at least a brand new Leungyo Doodler sells at a reasonable price, half the cost of a new Future Make Polyes Q or Joyluxy Intelligent SL-300. And it will use both ABS and PLA filaments, while some first-generation 3D pens would only use one or the other.
And the Polyes gets great online reviews from users, which is more than you can say for the extremely low-cost IDo3D Art Pen. It comes in five different colors, so you can pick one that matches your child's (or your own) taste in gadget décor. Leungyo also supplies a portfolio of designs you can use as templates for your work, so if you want to make your own three-dimensional SpongeBob Squarepants, you'll at least have a fighting chance of getting it right. You can also make your own templates if you're handy with felt tip markers. Just squeeze hot plastic along the 2D lines until you've got the thickness and color combinations you want, then peel off the result and attach it to the rest of the assembly with an extra dab of hot plastic. Some of the resulting art shown off on YouTube by happy (and artistically skilled) users is impressive, so the pen appears to justify the relatively small amount you pay for it.
The tip is extremely hot, though, so watch your fingers lest you have to make an emergency trip to the ice cube tray (or, worse, to the ER). The pen comes with three ABS filaments in three different colors, so you'll have to shell out extra cash if you want to make your own Rainbow Brite toy. (This project may not be suitable for beginners.) But this is true of all 3D pens. If you get hooked on multi-dimensional design the real cost is going to be in the filaments, not in the pen itself.
Leungyo 3D printing pen is a nice cheap 3D pen. I was not expecting too much being from the price point of the item.
Wow I never knew 1 device could be so fun to use. It makes me feel like a child again.
This is a great 3d pen. First I had received a defective product but the seller quickly got me a replacement and it works great.
