3D Pens – A New Tool in the Artistic World


Generally, people used a normal wood pencil or click pencils which are normally made of wood or plastic and the lead is used to make the art. With these ordinary pencils, people can only draw 2-dimensional images.  But now, using a new technology, a 3D diagram can also be drawn. The 3-dimensional pen doesn’t look like the normal pens. It looks like a bulkier version of a normal pen or pencil and, instead of ink or lead, it operates using plastic.

There are probably a lot of things in your mind about how difficult it is to use or is it even a good thing? Well, using this 3-dimensional pen is no different than using a regular pen or a pencil. As it uses plastic for operation, the user has to insert the plastic filament and after inserting it, the filament will get hot with the heating technology which has used the pen. The heat is intense enough to melt the plastic filament, and turn it into a liquid form. Once the filament turns liquid, the user can use the pen to create anything. The most surprising thing is the pen can work on almost all surfaces. These pens work on the same principle as glue guns work. But the main difference is that the 3-dimensional pen filaments come in different colors.

Now if a new user thinks what they can do with this 3D pen, the possibilities are limitless. Instead of drawing 2-dimensional images as said previously, using this 3D pen, the users can actually add another dimension to the drawing with more realistic looks. Maybe this is a new technology but the market has a lot of them. There are many choices that a person can avail and, if someone is inexperienced in this field, he or she may have a hard time to find the most suitable one.

From some of the renowned companies’ website, people can actually select their products. They provide the most unique and comprehensive 3D design to manufacture solutions including various 3D printing materials like 3D printers, and 3D scanners. Some of the websites contain many different options regarding the 3D printing modules and also offer an e-studio to experience this for the new people, and 3D medical equipment and models. In Delhi, Gurgaon, Punjab, Gujrat and many more cities, the 3D pen is gaining its popularity rapidly.  So, let’s be the part of a new dimension to experiencing a new and interesting form of art.
