    Today in our box of merchandise my brother and i found a 3d printing pen and decided to keep it for personal use. Wanna know if theres others on here that know how to use it well and could give me some tips on working, really wanna learn to use it since i already do alot of art related stuff

    I have played with them in the past and they are pretty much toys, even compared to more conventional cheap 3d printers. They are a good way to get to grips with both pen angle for more conventional art and feed rate for 3d printing.
    With practice I guess you could make simple 3d models faster than with wire and a set of pliers, though probably with more expense.

    Don't really plan on making anything super complex just some real small stuff that i can use on bigger models. I have seen some really cool things done with them though like this deku tree.
