Few Things You Need for your 3d Pen Art

3D pens are the latest craze in art supplies. They are like a printer for drawing and work by pushing out heated plastic to form solid shapes that can be created into anything you can imagine! This nifty gizmo is not just for kids either- it’s perfect for artists of all levels and ages, no matter your skill level. Read Full Report to explore what makes this product so great, what you need to get started and so much more!

PLA plastic

This is the special plastic you use to draw with your 3D pen. It is lightweight, biodegradable, and nontoxic. You can get it in a variety of colors so start brainstorming right now on everything you want to create!

Pen Stand

Keeping track of where your pen is can be hard. While you might think that the pen matches the end of your 3D creation, it is actually more like a wand where it can be flexible and may bend. If you drop this, which you likely will at some point, make sure to keep track of the pen’s receptacle (the part that holds the plastic) so that nothing happens to it.

A Paper Clip Wire

While this may be something you usually throw out or recycle, take one of these wires and cut it in half. Thread one of the halves through your pen’s nozzle, which effectively acts as a guide for the filament to go through without getting snagged on anything or going everywhere except into the pen itself.

A Quick-Start Kit

All you need is some paper and a surface to get started with your pen, but if you want to go beyond just an outline or swirly shapes once you get the hang of it then a quick-start kit is a great option. It comes with lots of different colors and examples of what to do with them so you can really let your imagination run wild!

A Good Grip

While some pens come with a textured grip, it’s a good idea to get an additional one. You can find some in most art supply or craft stores, though I found the best ones on Amazon! The ones that I got are easy to clean, come in different colors for personalizing, and make it easier to hold the pen without dropping it.

A Soft Surface

Another way to ensure you don’t drop your pen is to place it on a flat surface or use something soft like paper or cardboard insulation. You can also opt for a silicone mat to make sure nothing gets burned or damaged.

A Cooling Tray

This is the most important thing you need for your pen, but they are very cheap and can be found in many different places. They help cool down your creation after you remove it from the pen so that it won’t warp or melt under its own weight.
