3D Printing via Your Pen

Lix-pen_dezeen_1
The 3-D revolution is starting to gather pace with more and more unique offerings entering the marketplace. One of the new inventions that is on its way to a store near you is a 3-D printing pen that retails for around $95. The 3-D pen is called the 3-Doodler, and it essentially allows you to lift your flat sketches from a traditional pen or pencil off the paper into a three dimension drawing.

3-Doodler is the world’s first and only 3-D Printing Pen. It can use either ABS or PLA plastic (the material used by many 3-D printers), and can draw in the air or on surfaces. It’s compact and easy to use, and requires no software or computers. You just plug it into a power socket and can start drawing anything within minutes.

3-D printers have revolutionized rapid prototyping tool, the 3-Doodler is even faster; it adds a whole new dimension to back-of-the-napkin brainstorming. Moving forward, this pen paves the way for more innovation and products that will change the way we create and produce products. In time as this technology continues to develop the 3-D printing pen might become as ubiquitous as the 2-D ballpoint pens.

IMPACTS:

  • Equipment like this 3-D pen and the other 3-D products will have a major impact across many industries. From food to Fashion, you will soon be able to print it in your home, school or office.
  • We will see a shift over the next 5 years, where businesses will move thier manufacturing back to domestic production as the cost of goods for local production drop and efficienciences increase with the use of 3-D printing.
  • Growth in new jobs and industries that will supply computer files, matenance services and printing materials.
  • Destruction of brands as people find files online and print off replica designer brands from the home.

OUTCOMES:

  • With the development of 3-D printing technology, people will move from manufacture purchase to in-house printing.
  • We will see a new wave of DIY product creation.
  • The work shops of the world will start to decline as technology develops and the costs and time to print fall.
  • The new work shops of the world be your home.
  • We will see an explosion of 3-D files that people will download and print from.
  • Loss of jobs across traditional manufacturing based countries like China and a slight increase in job opportunities in domestic markets that once imported products from.
