hello I'm 14 and ever since I saw the 3 d printer pen i thought "i need to find a way to make this work but everyone can do"
WARNING: only use ABS Thermoplastic 3d printing film any size works
another note, this is just the piece to the puzzle my family cant afford to buy abs thermoplastic so this is just a proposition for you to build upon because i am on a zero dollar budget here so now this is your idea as the reader to make this work
Step 1: Gathering the Materials
you will need:
1: high heat hot glue gun
2:a pair of snips
4: the only thing you need to buy is a worm gear dc motor (sorry)
5: u shaped bendable plastic( relatively thin )
7: and an on off switch.
and you're ready!
Step 2: Step 1: Wiring the Motor
motor goes to switch,then switch goes to battery. pretty simple! I would solder instead of twisting the wires.
Step 3: Step 2: Preparing the Hot Glue Gun for the Parts
so basically just snip anything that could block the inner components from not fitting right. also a hole in the top for the switch. also the handle has to come off as well(if you want it to be pen shaped).
Step 4: Step 4:motor Mods!
all you need to do is modify a wor
Step 5: Step 3: Mechanics Insertion!(almost There!)
basicaly just insert the inner components and then screw the body together. i would suggest taping it together with duct tape (because duct tape is AWESOME!!)
Step 6: Step 5: You're Done
now you're done! happy printing! just flick the switch and print away!
