The smallest circular 3D pen in the world.
LIX PEN is a 3D Printing Pen that enables you to make free standing structures in the air. With LIX you can create anything from small to big, from details to prototypes, complicated and high detailed creations. It allows you to express your creativity on a whole new level. This is possible with plastic filament used by LIX instead of ordinary ink. Straight plastic rods are heated and extruded already melted which is how you can create volumetric creations in the air. LIX Pen works with straight plastic rods (ABS/PLA). They are 20 cm long and with a diameter of 1.75mm. Extrusion is 0.7 mm.
Note on using non-rand fillaments:
Although technically this pen could work with non-Lix-approved filaments, it has been know to jam when people tried to use it with generic filaments, so it’s safer to stick to the brand consumables.
Tip from customer (to prevent jamming, via amazon.com):
I’ve eliminated jams 100% by never backing filament out of my pens. Even though they’re supposed to be able to do it, it’s just a bad idea. It will always leave a sticky string of hardening filament inside your pen, and that’s what causes problems. Just snip off the excess sticking out the back when you’re done, and let it cool down with the filament inside. If you need to change filaments, just run the current one through, and put the next one in when the pen’s empty. Everyone complains of jamming, and I don’t know how you would fix a jam with a Lix. I also wouldn’t want to depend on their tech support from the sound of other people’s experience. But I’ve never had to!
