World’s Smallest 3D-Printing Pen Lets You Doodle in the Air

The wonderful world of 3D printing just got a whole lot more accessible and portable with the development of the LIX 3D Pen. Touted as the world’s smallest 3d-printing pen, the LIX lets you doodle in the air without any paper. After plugging it into a USB port and turning it on, the pen takes less than a minute to heat up. Plastic filaments are inserted at the top of the pen and come out through the hot-end nozzle, which simultaneously melts and cools the material.

Everyone from artists to designers to working professionals can enjoy the creative possibilities of the LIX. It’s the perfect tool for making accessories, decorations, sculptures, jewelry, prototypes, and any different forms of structures imaginable. As a bonus, the LIX looks and feels like a regular ballpoint pen with its sleek, compact body and fine tip, adding to the stylish appeal.

For anyone interested in owning the LIX 3D Pen, be sure to check out their Kickstarter.
