The Wercan Printing Pen comes right out and tells you what it is in the name of the product. It's a printing pen. Period. The mind boggles at the amount of creative thought that must have gone into coming up with a name that succinct. It must have taken, oh, several nanoseconds. The name is almost redundant because you merely have to look at the Printing Pen to know that, indeed, this is a 3D printing pen. It has the fat grip and tapered form factor found on almost every 3D pen on the market.
3D printing pens, when they first appeared on the market a few years ago, were an extremely creative idea. It would be nice if somebody would have a creative idea about 3D pens, but so far every 3D printing pen on the market has been, essentially, the same pen. So in that sense the generic name is appropriate because this is a generic product. That's not necessarily bad. If you want a 3D pen, one is as good as another, but there's little that makes individual pens stand out (other than product support and quality assurance). The Wercan Printing Pen uses ABS plastic filaments to produce molten plastic that dries as it comes out of the tip, allowing you to draw lines perpendicular to a solid surface. You can control the speed of the extrusion. Three free colored filaments come in the package.
There. That's the Printing Pen in a nutshell. People who have reviewed it on Amazon seem to like it but not many people have reviewed it as of this writing. The only complaint is that the tip, which as in all 3D pens is a burn wound waiting to happen, takes a long time to cool down. The cord may be too short, so you might prefer a pen that works on batteries. The price of a new unit is okay, but there are slightly less expensive pens around.
If you want to look at other 3D printing pens, most of them just as generic as the Wercan Printing Pen, be our guest. Some places to start include the Morphpen Professional, the Leungyo Doodler and the 7Tech 3D Printing Pen.
This 3D pen is lightweight and easy to use right out of the box. The directions are simple to follow.
This 3D is pretty easy to use, you place the filament in the top whole and press the button on the side to feed it through.
