Doodle, sketch and paint in 3D with this quality pen. See images above. It features variable extrusion speed control and large OLED display to help monitor heat. The temperature can be adjusted from 130 to 240 C in 1 degree increments, to help fine-tune the thickness & flow-rate of extruded material. This drawing kit comes with a lightweight, ergonomic stylus, 3 colors of ABS plastic and a 100-240V AC 50/60Hz adapter. It has a Power Output of 10 Watts with an Input power of 5 Volts/DC 2A, so it can be used safely outdoors as well. FCC, CE and RoHS-certified. Turn your ordinary drawings into 3D works of art. Order yours today! Pilo™ 3D Pen Start is a 3D pen that has been specifically designed for children aged 3 and up. Drawing with it feels quite nice in the hand as, much like an actual pen, there’s no wire sticking out of the back of it, meaning you won’t get all tangled up while using it. The controls are simple, and it feels good in the hand. Unfortunately, that’s about as far as we can tell you about it, as ours clogged 3 times in the first 20 minutes of using it. Soon after, a fourth clog put it out of action for good, with 3Doodler support confirming there was nothing we could do but send it back under warranty, in exchange for a new one.

Elevate your imagination
Hold the magic of 3D printing in your hand with the Pilo™ 3D Pen. Now you can use FDM technology in any application varying from drafting and prototyping to spatial learning and three dimensional sculpting. Whether you're an engineer or an artist, the Pilo™ 3D Pen will take your design projects to greater heights.
Works with Nearly Any 1.75mm Filament Under the Sun
We at Pilo™ 3D Pen believe you should be able to use any thermoplastic you wish. ABS and PLA are a given, but what about wood or bronze infused filaments? If it is 1.75mm and melts between 140-230° C, then it will work in the Pilo™ 3D Pen.
Fast, Slow, and Anywhere in Between
One speed isn't good enough for your car and it's not good enough for a 3D pen either. With the Pilo™ 3D Pen you can crank up the extrusion speed for larger fill in areas and turn it down slow to create intricate works of art. The stepless design lets you dial in the optimal speed for any task you can throw at it.
Hi John, the most common cause of a jam (in any 3d pen) is deformation of the filament. This can be caused by incorrect temperature settings or an irregularity in the filament, and what happens is the heat causes the filament deform so that is not the right size/shape to pass through the pen. Typically this can be resolved by backing out the filament, cutting off the deformed section and continuing. However sometimes, the deformed section pulls off and remains lodged in the nozzle. One of the great things about our pens is that you can pop off the service door, easily remove the nozzle, remove the deformed section of filament and the pen is good as new. The key to avoiding jams is using high quality filament, setting the temperature correctly and most importantly, if the pen stops feeding normally pause your work and back out the filament instead of trying to force it through the pen. Following these tips, you shouldn't ever have jamming issues.
ABS fumes are bad for you. PLA is better, no matter what filament you use you should use it in a well ventilated area. PLA has less of an ordor and is a corn based plastic that is considered safer by 3D print enthusiasts.
Desktop 3D printers that use a spool have a more robust feed mechanism than this pen. If you have your spools set to feed very smoothly and easily, like on a ball bearing setup, you should be OK. Where you might have issues is with having the spool on a solid plastic rod type holder which can add more friction or with some brands of filament that are not wound as well as others and can bind which also could be a problem. If you can employ some sort of method of keeping some slack in the filament so you're not pulling straight off the spool that seems ideal.
