3D pens

Post by FWLR » Tue Aug 13, 2019 8:16 am

Can anyone tell me if these pens are any good. Paradime USB 3D Printing Pen. We are thinking of getting one for the eldest grandson. He is very good at drawing, but he is also getting into making things which we think is great. He does do a lot of little models out of DAS for his school work.

Hopefully he can also get into 3D modelling and his Mum & Dad might get him a decent printer...Can you see where I am going with this.... :lol: :lol:

Hi Rod
I suspect many are like me. I have heard of them but have no experience so unable to advise

Rod,
FWIW, although I know of the existence of these pens I've never even seen one, let alone used one, so I'm no help at all! :lol:
I suspect that the deafening silence also means that nobody else knows anything either, sorry.

My gut feeling is that the models produced with one of these, compared to a proper 3D printer, would be like the difference between a freehand sketch on paper and a computer CAD drawing. That doesn't mean a child wouldn't get satisfaction from playing with one, but don't expect too much from it.

Just my 2 penn'orth.
