I had the chance to test there 3D pens which are cool the 3Dsimo Basic, the 3Dsimo Mini 2 and the 3Dsimo KIT. You can see them at https://3dsimo.com.
There are so many great things which can me made with a 3D pen. You are limited only by your imagination. The 3D pens can be use to draw, burn, decorate and create.
I am not a talented artist. It was fun to play with the pens but I don’t have any spectacular creations to brag with. But I went online and below you can see what is possible to create with a 3D pen and lots of talent & patience.
The Carousel Pony Copper Wire Beaded Sculpture looks amazing and it is currently being sold for EUR 2,182.38 on etsy.
I found this on Pintrest.
At enandplastic.com you can find all sorts of interesting 3D things like the handbag posted below.
And on pinterest you can get tons of ideas just search for “3d pen ideas”. I really like this bird and you will find many more on pinterest.
Now back to the 3D pens.
