3D Pens.........Useful or Not?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone got a 3D pen?      Comments on how useful it might be for modelling and plastics used would be welcome.

Don't know....I always thought it might be neat to "draw" a line of thin plastic into a seam to fill it. However, not sure how workable the
"plastic" being extruded is....I know some 3D plastic is quite rough and very tough to "smooth out".

It might work very well in trying to draw weld bead seams onto armor models, where smoothness is much less of an issue.

In both of those cases I'm not sure if there's a short time where the extruded plastic is soft/molten enough to adhere on its own, or if you'd have to draw your desired item and then glue it in/on.
