3D printing is becoming more and more mainstream as more 3D printers are becoming available to consumers. 3D printing may be the future in how we make our own custom products. It has already proven very useful when it comes to buildings things like toys, phone cases and many other cool products.
LIX is an all new 3D printing pen which was recently funded on Kickstarter, gaining over £700,000 in crowdfunding. With LIX you can freely draw and create whatever you can come up with. It’s the smallest 3D printer in the world. It simply works by connecting via USB and you feed the material through the top of the pen.
LIX 3D printing pen has the similar function as 3D printers. It melts and cools coloured plastic, letting you create rigid and freestanding structures. Lix has a hot-end nozzle that is power supplied from USB 3.0 port. The plastic filament ABS/PLA is introduced in the upper extremity of Lix Pen. The filament goes through a patented mechanism while moving through the pen to finally reach the hot-end nozzle which melts and cools it down. An interesting fact about this light-weight, engineered pen is that these structures can be formed in any imaginable shape.
LIX is currently selling available for pre-order in black or white at £85 ($139), much cheaper than other 3D printers out there. You pre-order directly from their website.
