We develop imagination and spatial perception with the help of a 3D pen (for ourselves and for children)
The review, as you already understood, will be about a 3D pen, so to speak, a three-dimensional printer.
I have long wanted to get such a thing mainly for my daughter, so what to hide, it’s interesting myself
In the review I will tell you how to use it, what you can do with it, the pros and cons.
And a little curiosity about how the 3D Doodle was invented from which clones are made. In the process of printing a part in a 3D printer, an error was noticed and one of the guys who created the 3D Doodle said, “Damn, that’s a bummer that you can’t just pick up the printer’s extruder and fix the error manually! pancake! but you can! ” So they came up with this miracle device, which has already been reborn in a considerable number of versions. link
Interesting? Come in
The package arrived pretty quickly. Was packed in an envelope with a bubble wrap.
So what we get in the box:
– 3D Pen
– ABS plastic in the form of rods, 1.75mm thick, three colors (orange, blue and black), a couple of meters each.
– Power supply for 12V 3A with European plug
– An adapter from different plugs to a European one (it is not entirely clear why, after all, the PSU is already European)
Handle on both sides
In the upper half, you can see a slider that controls the plastic feed rate.
Bottom feed forward and backward buttons.
Potentiometer for temperature control under the rubber plug. Extruder connector
Center hole for plastic feed
On the left, there are four holes for two pairs of contacts, a heating element and a temperature sensor. Extruder with cap Cap Extruder
The heating element and temperature sensor are wrapped in a thermo. isolation.
Strength test, one layer, moved slowly, lines glued perfectly. As a result, we get a part that breaks into a bend along the lines, but is quite strong at a break perpendicular to the lines. From the bottom, the detail turns out to be smooth, I added two more layers each in a different direction. As a result, it is a strong part, the layers are glued together.
Now three layers, moved faster, each layer changed direction, gaps are visible. Nevertheless, the part is flexible for bending. When bending, a crunching sound is heard, it turned out that these lines are peeling off from each other. The part was disassembled into layers.
What exactly can you do with the handle. There are three options.
1. Creation of two-dimensional things, that is, simply drawing patterns on any surface. Easy for start and kids.
2. Creation of three-dimensional things through and gluing them together with the same plastic. Easy for start and kids.
3. Creation of three-dimensional things in a straight line using the fact that the plastic hardens very quickly after it leaves the extruder. Requires skill as you need to get used to the behavior of plastic and a pair of non-shaking hands.
4. Fixing something from a similar plastic, that is, building up. Depends of course what and how, but I think for gluing / fusing, you need to warm up the part and then build up otherwise the added part will break off.
Many will think that this is a toy and will be 99% right, but for example, in the video below, the guy, that same 1%, made the part he needed with a similar handle. a propeller for a quad! I think I used not ABS, but a different type of plastic, but this is not essential.
I will summarize
A great gift for any age, children and adults. I assure you everyone will want to try and you need a lot of plastic.
Develops spatial thinking. My daughter has already begun to make attempts not only to trace patterns on paper, but also to try something in the space above the pattern.
Uses standard plastic, 1.75mm ABS. You can find it anywhere, normal, glowing, etc.
Replacement parts are freely sold for this model, if something breaks can be easily replaced.
In my opinion, the only model at the moment is light enough and convenient for a child to use.
– The price is still high.
– Sometimes, after the handle has been in use, a “plug” is formed in the extruder, which does not allow using the device. This problem can be easily solved by removing the extruder and pulling the plastic out of the extruder while it is hot.
– For children, the plastic feed button is a little high, I solved this problem by placing a stand under my daughter’s arm.
– Temperature control without indication, conventional potentiometer. If you change the temperature, this is bad because it is difficult to adjust. If, as for me, only for ABS it will do.
– Sometimes you need to push the plastic as it won’t come out.
Who cares about the next generation of such a pen.
Slim and light
Handle using cold plastic

Well that’s all, good night everyone, if you have any questions, write.
Sorry, my daughter’s creativity will not be shown, did not agree.
Now you need to stock up on plastic.
Stencil for 3D pens. airplane
In this tutorial, we will create a classic fighter jet with a rotating propeller using a stencil for a 3D pen, which will allow children to play this plane like a toy. This is a basic model that can be changed to your liking, for example, add a windshield, stripes, stars, flags, and add another row of wings to a biplane.
What we need to create a fighter plane:
- 3D pen;
- Plastic rods for the handle (it took me 5 pieces for this model) or plastic wire;
- Printer to print an airplane template for a 3D pen.
How to make an airplane using a 3D pen, step by step instructions:
Print this airplane stencil on a printer:
Trace the contours of the airplane parts with a 3D pen on the printed stencil and paint over them with the same colors as we have, or choose another color if you like.
We begin the assembly of the aircraft body, for this, use the heated plastic from the handle to connect the side of the body to the long triangle serving as the lower part of the aircraft.
Do the same with the second side wall.
Turn the created fuselage over and reinforce the lower part of the fill with plastic side joints.
Attach a small triangle to the back top of the hull that leads to the tail of the plane.
Now also attach the trapezoidal piece to the front top of the fuselage.
Attach the fenders to the bottom of the plane, so that they are in front of the cockpit.
Reinforce the fenders to the cockpit top and bottom with plastic from the 3D handle.
Now we need to attach a small piece of a rod from a 3D pen to the previously drawn square, for this we make a small pile of plastic in the center of the square and glue a piece of the rod so that it stands upright.
Attach a square piece to the front of the aircraft cockpit, right down the center.
Fill the small gaps left at the top and bottom of the square piece with plastic.
Insert the rear fenders into the groove in the tail section so that the fenders protrude from both sides of the body equally. And attach them to the body with heated plastic from the handle.
Attach one of the small round shapes to the tiny part of the triangle. Rear chassis ready to go!
Attach the triangular piece to the bottom of the body in front of the front fenders.
Attach the other two wheels to the front chassis.
Reinforce them on both sides so they don’t come off.
Attach the landing gear to the bottom of the aircraft fuselage in line in front of the wings.
Put the screw on the front, on the rod, and fix so that it does not fly off a drop of plastic in the front of the rod, but so that the screw can turn.
That’s it, the plane is ready to fly! Add some embellishments to it with your 3D pen, flags, colors, lines, etc. to make the plane look individual. For example, I painted the fuselage, wing tips, front and tail in red, added a windshield.
We give here a template-stencil of another airplane aircraft, everything is done in the same way as the previous model.
