3D Printing Pen Abstract Sculpture


Right. Now, listen up here now y’all. Tough times call for tough people. Not quite sure what I mean by that, but got y’all a li’l video here. Where I’mma to be drawin’ somethin’ with a 3D pen. And when you draw something with a 3D pen it turns into more of a– well, it turns into more of a sculpture. So. I’ll be drawn y’all a abstract sculpture of sorts. ‘Cause, uh, when I do my abstract drawin’s with an abstract 3D pen, it turns into a sculpture. So, I’ve never used one of these before and a lot of people been encouragin’ me to use a 3D pen. And I’ve been putting it off for a long time because for a long time [comically placed begrudging acceptance sigh] I just thought this technology wasn’t where I wish it had been– where I wish it should be and where I thought it could be. And what I really wanted from 3D pens is for, you know, to just be able to freely draw in 3D– 3D space, maybe– like, maybe, you can with some of these, uh, you know, like 3D– 3D, like, VR-programs like Tilt Brush and stuff like that. Which– which is still a technology I have to toy with at some point, but maybe now that I built a new computer I can try that. Maybe– I didn’t even think of that. Haven’t thought of that in a long time, actually. Anyways The 3D pen… I– I was really– I was kind of stubborn I am a stubborn person. Sometimes, the more the people tell me to try something, the more I put it off. But! Curiosity got the best of me, and, here I am. We’re doing it. We are. And, you really– you can’t just draw freely in 3D space. You’ve got to, uh– There’s a way– First of all, there’s two different types of the most popular plastics you can use: there’s ABS plastic, and there’s PLA plastic. The ABS plastic is, uh, it’s a little more toxic when you use it.
You got to make sure you have real good ventilation. And I didn’t have this because I knew it– since I knew I was going to be using it indoors a lot of times, I, uh, I opted for the PLA plastic which– it’s a little sweeter, and when you burn with it, I mean when you build with it, it smells sweet like candy a little bit. So I opted for that. And when you, uh, when you build with it, it comes out of this li’l 3D pen at about eh, about 200 degrees Celsius, give or take. And then when it comes out, it, it cools, and as soon as it cools — it cools quickly — it hardens instantly. And it’s really rigid and strong, and I was– I was pleasantly pleased and surprised by how rigid and strong it was even though it’s thin. I thought– It looks fragile, but it’s actually really strong, and I was happy with it. It’s like, I was building this, this structure — it looks like some sort of weird maybe like a crazy building or something. But it was actually really strong. Like, I could– I could grab some weird, little, tip-toppy piece of it and pick up the whole thing, and swing it around, and do crazy stuff with it, and it didn’t even feel like it was about to break. In fact, if I had like some little strand of it, it was actually really difficult to break. And I had to have my little Leatherman tool on hand to cut little pieces off of it. I couldn’t break it off by hand. It was, uh, I don’t know. But, so, I, before I built this thing, I had some– I squeezed out a bunch of it into little piles and whatnots just to get, you know, get a, get a feel for it. Just to see how it worked. Anyways, what was I saying? Anyways, yeah, you can’t just draw up freely into 3D space like I wish you could. Maybe, one day, the technology will be there. Where you can just freely draw up into 3D space like you can with, like, VR, Tilt Brush programs stuff like that. But you can do it alright. Like, you just got to kind of build up some supports and stuff. You kind of– you got to build up onto itself. It’s kind of an additive technology where– And you can, you can build straight up, but you gotta, like, let it dry first and then build straight up on top of that and– It’s definitely got a lot of potential, and I’m excited about it. And, I don’t know. I probably should have gotten one a long time ago but I was– I got in my own way with my stubbornness. I really did. I have only myself to blame But it’s not like I didn’t have a lot of other fun stuff that I was doing in the meantime. One of the weird things about this is– or one of the little, annoying things is all the little strings, like, when you finish, like, a little you make little blobs of it, you know? Or long blah– mik– [fumbles around in wordspace] What are the–? What’s it–? I don’t know. Sometimes, I have problems thinking of words. You know, like, you make… tendrils. “Tendrils” is a cool word. You make tendrils of it. And then you, like, stop a tendril, and you pull the pen away. There’s a tendency for these long, very thin, hair-like strands to accumulate on your desk ’cause you’re stopping, and starting, and stopping, and starting. That’s a little bit annoying. It’s just a little bit messy in that sense, and I was working on, like, a wooden desk. It’s kind of splintery, and those hair-like tendrils — like plastic hairs — they were really just plastic hairs — were like accumulating and… I don’t know. It’s, it’s really a nitpicky thing. It was fun! It was very fun. I took my time with it and, uh, really, there’s no danger of burning yourself unless you touch the very tippy-tippy tip, and this model– I think– I don’t know how to pronounce it I think it’s [minted]. It’s spelled MYNT3D like a little pun, pin, a pun, a pun. I don’t know why I can’t say pun. I think this mustache is making it harder to talk. It’s, like, it gets in my mouth. [resigned sigh similar to, but distinct from, the begrudging acceptance sigh] I’ll probably shave it off at any second. [second, sarcastic sigh] It’s constant battle. It is. Anyways, I had a great time with it. I had a great– I did. I did. I really did, and I recommend it to anyone. It’s a little pricey. It’ll probably keep– I mean they probably used to be a lot more expensive, and they’ll probably keep getting cheaper. And I bought just a big spool. I got 1.2– for some reason they, they do the spools by the pound– I mean by the kilogram. I bought two 1.2 kilogram spools of this PLA filament, or whatever it’s called. I bought a spool the black stuff and spool the white stuff. They’re like $20 each for the spools. 1.2 “Kg”s, and, uh, I don’t think I’ll run out anytime soon. I don’t think I will. I just, I like having a ton of it so I can just draw endlessly in 3D space, and just have, like, almost unlimited amounts of this stuff and not worry about it. It’s a great feeling. And, uh… Yeah, I have like all sorts of ideas now after this first project of all sorts of stuff to do. I’m excited about it. I really am. Anyways, let me know if you guys have any questions, uh. I had fun. I did. I did have fun. Anyways, thanks for all the people that did suggest this over and over and over again, until I finally caved and did it. [sighs and wishes he didn’t have to say that because it’s really tough to have random people tell you what to do] Alright. Goodbye everybody. [blows an Italian kiss] [immediately regrets it] No, I take that back. Blegh. Goodbye.

    Cool pen and art Peter! Very unique and it looks fun to do. I could think of a few things to construct with that pen medium. 🤓

    Oh my!? I loved the southern accent you did at the beginning of this video. As I live in AL but am from CA – born and bred. I still have tha CA accent even after many years but it is fun when my CA family come for a visit and they start talking about the "Alabama" accent. So I then shift into a perfect southern accent, which always makes them laugh! And it is fun to be able to do that and see their feedback…lol.

    Anyways….that pen would make a cool Black Pearl Pirate ship? Soooo, and then we could all talk like Pirates – FUN!

    TC Peter – love ya bunches!! ❤
