The 3D doodle, which don’t require a solid platform for drawing or writing were an almost instant hit since they gave a different approach to art. Creating 3D doodles can be done on air and therefore don’t restrict one to a studio.
How do 3D Pens Work?
3D pens are designed with a technology that can heat up plastic and expel it in a molten form that’s easily solidified on contact to air. These plastic, (or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene for some pens) have natural properties that make it possible for them to be structured into petite filaments. The filaments are then fed into the pen from one end, heated through the pens heating mechanism, and then extruded from the other end. Different models utilize different heating mechanism, from rechargeable batteries to plugged power outlets. You use the molten material oozed out to form solid materials as it’s easily cooled by air or in some models you can harden the material using UV light.
A simple guideline for using 3D Pens
There is no special know-how required to be able to use 3D pens is expressing your artistic creations. Even better, both left handed and right handed people can use 3D pens as it does not have any limitations. Below are simple steps that will show you just how easy using 3D pens are…
- Initiate the heating mechanism in the pen by plugging it to a power supply. If your model uses batteries, simply turn the pen on.
- Use the user guideline to plastic strands into the pen.
- Pens come with different control settings for filament extrusion flow amount, speed and also for changing the color of filament. Check the controls that your pen has and tailor it to your preference.
