3d pen


  •  A 3D pen is an upgraded version of a regular pen that uses plastic instead of regular ink. There are many ways to use a 3D pen, given its key functional property; it can be used on any surface and with any shade of plastic! Yes exactly.

  •  Such pens do not require a paper surface or a special screen to use. They have the same design as a regular pen, require the same movements as a regular pen, so they can be handled even by children who understand that you should not put your finger on the tip of a 3D pen so as not to get burned.

  •  Before you decide which 3D pen to choose, we will tell you what to consider before buying one.

  1. Control type. Most 3D pens come with a temperature control system. You can control the temperature of liquid plastic. Some models have speed control for flowing plastic for stable artwork and an LCD display that shows the temperature and paint mode depending on the type of plastic. Control increases the efficiency and accuracy of the work and improves the ease of application.
  2. Design. It should be ergonomic so that the handle is comfortable to use for a long time. Simply put, before buying, rotate the 3D pen in your hand, it should fit perfectly in the palm of your hand.
  3. Plastic type: PLA, PCL or ABS. The first two are biodegradable and do not require as high a temperature as ABS. But the latter is more wear-resistant, durable and can withstand a wide temperature range (from -40 to +90 degrees).
  4. Does the pen have a ceramic spout, which does not heat up as much as metal. Its presence is mandatory if a child will use the 3D pen.

10. Spider Pen Polyes PS


  • cold seal
  • power supply: USB
  • recommended age: 9+

  •  If you're worried about your child getting burned when doing 3D work, buy them a cold-printed 3D pen.

  •  It is devoid of heating elements, and refilled with photopolymer ink, which hardens under the influence of ultraviolet light.

  •  The body of Spider Pen Polyes PS has a soft coating, from which even a sweaty hand will not slip.

ProsA: safe, can work up to 1 hour on a single charge, can draw while charging, there is no unpleasant smell when drawing.

Cons: photopolymer ink is not included in the package, this 3D pen is quite expensive.

9. Funtastique CLEO


  • hot stamp
  • print material: ABS, PLA
  • power supply: USB
  • recommended age: 5+

  •  The best 3D pen for beginners, given its relatively low cost and the ability to work with two of the most common types of plastic. The small weight of Funtastique CLEO – 50 grams – allows even a child to use it for a long time.

  •  And if you stop using it, and at the same time do not turn it off, then after a couple of minutes it will turn itself off.

  •  There is no screen on the device, but there are several plastic feed rates and the ability to work from Power Bank.

Pros: high-quality assembly, good ergonomics, a variety of colors.

Cons: No test kit included.

8. MyRiwell RP200B


  • hot stamp
  • print material: PLA, PCL

  •  This powerful 3D pen comes with speed control for fast filling of large areas with plastic and delicate intricate design, as well as temperature control.

  •  The ergonomic design of the MyRiwell RP200B allows you to control the device with perfect agility that larger 3D pens cannot boast.

  •  The built-in battery of the pen can be charged from the docking station that comes with the kit. Unfortunately, the manufacturer did not give this model the opportunity to work with ABS plastic, opting for low-temperature PLA and PCL. But this is perhaps the only drawback of the device.

Pros: there is a plastic return function that allows you to make neat and finished lines, there is a display that shows the temperature and material feed rate, a replaceable ceramic spout.

Cons: Does not work with ABS.

7.Funtastique ONE


  • hot stamp

  •  If you are looking for which 3D pen is better according to reviews, then you will not pass by this model. Thanks to the streamlined shape of the case, Funtastique ONE is comfortable to hold for both adults and children. It is slightly rough to the touch, so it does not slip even in a sweaty palm.

  •  This 3D pen is equipped with an OLED display, which shows all operating parameters, from temperature to consumable feed rate (there are 6 speeds in total). The handle heats up in less than a minute, and if it is not used for more than 1,5 minutes, it turns off on its own.

Pros: fast heating, good build quality, weighs only 50g, very easy operation.

Cons: price.

6 CreoPop


  • cold press
  • Printing material: photopolymer
  • Power supply: built-in battery
  • Consumables included

  •  This model is not like regular 3D pens. It is wireless and does not have a heating element. Instead, CreoPop uses a special photopolymer ink that reacts to blue LEDs built into the pen, rather than to heat.

  •  Given that there is no heating element inside the device, it is very easy to use and safe for children.

Pros: design, the kit includes a set of stencils, a large selection of inks.

Cons: high price.

  •  After 2 minutes of inactivity, the handle will turn off, which is convenient if the child is distracted by something and forgot to turn it off.

  •  And thanks to the Retract function, the plastic will be drawn into the pen as soon as the user releases the draw button. This prevents the appearance of stretching threads. Due to the combination of its price and features, Myriwell RP100B is an excellent gift for both a child and an adult who is taking their first steps in 3D drawing.

Pros: Ergonomic, easy to operate, can be powered.

  • Weight 70 gr
  • Nozzle heating temperature: up to 280°s
  • Burning nozzle heating temperature: up to 480°s
  • Continuous work time: up to 48 hours

  •  This 3D pen is not like regular 3D pens. It has a beautiful design, and, more importantly, it can help with soldering, cutting foam materials, plexiglass up to 110 mm thick and thin plastic, and even burning wood and leather. For all these tasks, there are various nozzles that come with the handle.

  •  All these features may not be interesting for a child, but will be very useful for DIYers and people who are professionally involved in 3D drawing. A professional needs all kinds of tools to design and manufacture complex parts, and 3D Simo provides just that.

  •  The body of the device is a little bulky, but that's forgivable when you consider that the creation of Simo MultiPro had to combine soldering, cutting and burning with 3D drawing. The device has all the basic control functions such as temperature and speed and is also suitable for all types of plastic suitable for XNUMXD work.

  •  In addition, this 3D pen comes with its own app developed for both IOS and Android. It allows you to watch tutorials and create 3D projects.
