LIX: the world's smallest 3D printing pen doodles in mid-air

Posted on May 23, 2014 at 02:05am

London-based LIX has created the smallest 3D printing pen in the world. 

The device enables users to doodle in the air; you can make anything in just a few seconds, including calligraphy, accessories and one-off prototypes. functioning similarly to 3D printers, the LIX quickly melts and cools colored plastic, which enables the pen to create rigid and freestanding structures on demand. milled from aluminum, it measures 164mm x 14mm (approx 6.5″ x .5″), and includes a power cable that plugs into any traditional USB port for charging.
