3Dsimo Multi-material Pen For 3D Drawing
- October 16, 2013
You’ve probably heard about the 3Doodler. It was one of the most successful projects at Kickstarter. About 30,000 participators helped to gather more than $2,3 mn. Now, there’s 3Dsimo available. David Paskevich from Prague, Czech Republic, with his team have launched a new 3Dsimo campaign, that is a new multi-material pen for 3D drawing at indiegogo.com.
3Dsimo has some similarities with 3Doodler, but now you can choose your printing mode – temperature and speed. 3Dsimo is able to work with various materials, such as ABS, PLA, PVA (water soluble material) and nylon in different temperature modes. Other options include illumination, pre-heating and memory for settings. These parameters are used to define the proper printing mode.
Just like 3Doodler, 3Dsimo is very simple to use, it seems to be a usual pen. Every person familiar with a pen will master 3Dsimo. When you connect it, a required speed and temperature can be chosen, basing on the material.
3Dsimo resembles FDM technology, with plastic being fed to the hot pin. It can be used to repair the plastic device, assemble 3D printers, create jewelry or enjoy 3D modeling.
Like many other start-ups, 3Dsimo has launched a campaign to gather additional finances for the investment platform. 3Dsimo plans to raise $20,000 for the metal casting molds and obtain the CE marking.
3Dsimo weights 180 grams, and its length is only 170 mm. The full 3Dsimo package includes 3Dsimo pen, doc-station, 30 meters of printing material (ABS and PLA) and battery charger. First 100 people who support the project will be able to buy for $75. Have a look at the 3Dsimo campaign at indiegogo.com.
