Open the box for the Victorstar RP-600A 3D printing pen and you'll find some looped coils of colored plastic, some electronic connectors, and what looks like a large yellow magic marker. Don't be fooled. That magic marker is a cutting-edge electronic device that will let you do your magic marking in thin air, using the coiled plastic filaments as its drawing materials. Amazing, right?
Well, maybe not so amazing. There are dozens of 3D printing pens on the market and it's difficult to find anything about the Victorstar that makes it stand out from the rest. Their major advertising boast is that you can use the pen for a long time without getting tired. This apparently means that you don't have to hold down the load button continuously while you work, so if you've been using a 3D pen that required this, the Victorstar is less likely to give you carpal tunnel syndrome. You can also double-click the Load button to eject the filament, in case you need to change colors.
Like all 3D pens, the Victorstar has a hot tip that melts the strands of filament into an oozing goop of color that dries on contact with air, so you can start drawing on a piece of paper, then lift your pen upward and have the line follow it into open space. It uses ABS and PLA plastic filaments, the same kind used in 3D printers, and unlike some early 3D pens will use both kinds. (This is pretty standard now.) Three filaments, in random colors, come in the package. (This is also pretty standard.) You can find more filaments at an office supply store near you, in a veritable spectrum of colors, so you're not stuck with just the random colors in the box.
Except for that part about being less fatiguing to use, the Victorstar is a pretty standard 3D pen, not noticeably better or worse than the dozens of others on the market. If you want to look at some of those dozens, try the Ranphy 3D Pen, the Future Make Polyes Q1 and, for something truly special, the 3Doodler Pro, which can use plastics infused with wood, copper, bronze and even nylon.
Very, very difficult to use. Bought a much cheaper one and it worked so much better.
Very fast delivery. It is easy and fun to use and quite comfortable to hold. Great pen! I have recommended it to my son.
Very difficult to use for children and with only three filaments. I do not recommend this type of pens for children. It is difficult even for adults.
I love this product! It is very practical, expensive but it works the imagination of the youngest as that of the oldest.
The construction is solid enough. It works very well, as well as being easy to use. Nice!
I think the pen is very good and it also makes mega fun with him... Makes a lot of fun!
