6 best 3D pens

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective, does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

As you know, 3D printers have become incredibly popular in recent years. However, they cannot be called accessible yet. Not every person can afford to spend several tens of thousands of rubles on a device that will be used quite rarely. This is why 3D pens began to appear. These devices do not require a camera with glass walls. These devices draw with plastic in the air using the user's hand movements. Of course, using a 3D pen will not be able to create any perfect detail or a very large figure. This must be why a 3D pen is usually bought for entertainment and not for some serious task. If you familiarize yourself with our rating, you can also choose the perfect copy for yourself. It will definitely meet your requirements both in terms of performance and in terms of cost. And it will definitely be a very durable 3D pen.

SPIDER PEN PRO, ABS, PLA and UNID Pro

Rating: 4.9

SPIDER PEN PRO, ABS, PLA AND UNID PRO

One of the simplest representatives of our collection. This product was created by a Chinese company specializing in the production of all sorts of curious products that you could only dream of before. At the same time, the Chinese are trying to reduce the price tag to the maximum available value. In particular, this model is proposed to be purchased for only 3,500 rubles or a little more. The body of this 3D pen is partially made of metal. There are also plastic elements, which at such a cost could not do without.

First of all, it is not the design of the handle itself that attracts attention, but the equipment. The fact is that many online stores additionally put in the box with the product not only a USB cable and a network adapter, but also plastic of two colors. This means you can start 3D printing as soon as you get this pen in your hands. However, first it is recommended to read the instruction manual, which will explain the purpose of each button. Still, there are a lot of them on the body of the 3D pen. Although under each of them there is a corresponding signature, so someone can do without reading the instructions.

This model is equipped with a nozzle with a diameter of 0.6 mm. This allows you to draw some very subtle shapes. In total, two operating modes are available to the user, which are switched by the corresponding button. As for the length of the supplied plastic, it is 3 m. It seems that this will be enough even to create a very large figure. There is a display on the device. However, it cannot be called particularly informative, if only because of its tiny size.

This 3D pen is available in several colors. As for the additional features, the product has almost none. The user will not even be able to change the nozzle if, due to inaccurate actions, it suddenly clogs with solidified plastic. By the way, the product supports SBS and PLA plastic filaments. This is nice, the buyer will not be limited to any one standard.

Otherwise, it is difficult to say something special about this 3D pen. By modern standards, this is the most simplified device. It is unlikely that you will create a real masterpiece with it. However, it fully justifies its cost. If the 3D printing process captivates you, then in the future, no one will stop you from purchasing a real 3D printer. It will seem to you a serious tool, against the background of a 3D pen, which from now on will seem like a simple toy.

Advantages

  • It is completed with two plastic threads of different colors;
  • Two plastic standards are supported;
  • Simplest management;
  • There is a display on the body of the 3D pen;
  • There are different color options;
  • Two operating modes;
  • Relatively light weight.

disadvantages

  • The price is still high;
  • The nozzle cannot be replaced;
  • The accuracy of the work is far from ideal.

3Dali Plus, ABS and PLA

Rating: 4.8

3DALI PLUS, ABS AND PLA

If the 3D pen that opens our rating can still be used by an adult, then 3Dali Plus is a device for children. For schoolchildren, to be precise. The buyer will receive approximately the same set. This means that in the box you will find not only a power supply with a built-in cable, but also a plastic thread. Unfortunately, there is only one thread here. If you want to immediately get threads of other colors, you will have to buy them separately. There is also an instruction manual written in Russian and English.

The body of the device is made of plastic and metal. In this case, a 3D pen is waiting for you, the body of which is painted light green. There are no other options. The device turned out to be light enough, so the child is unlikely to encounter problems when using it.

The 3D pen contains several buttons and a miniature display. The device offers two modes of operation. In its lower part there is a nozzle with a diameter of 0.7 mm. As for consumables, the product supports PLA and ABS plastic.

One might get the impression that this model does not differ at all from the 3D pen discussed above. Well, there are some differences. This device comes in a colored box. Also, this is not the model that will be capable of creating neat plastic figures – at least the nozzle, the diameter of which turned out to be quite plump, affects. And the number of buttons is minimized here. Of course, the design is made practically disposable, the user does not have the opportunity to change the nozzle and any other components.

In short, this is a good option in order to try to teach your son something new. Perhaps this is the only purpose of the device. Alas, an adult will not be interested in this 3D pen.

Advantages

  • It is completed with a three-meter plastic thread;
  • Easy control;
  • Two operating modes;
  • Very low cost.

disadvantages

  • The cable cannot be removed from the power supply;
  • There are claims to reliability;
  • Nozzle replacement is not possible;
  • The work is unlikely to be accurate.

KREZ P3D03

Rating: 4.7

KREZ P3D03

Another 3D pen, similar to the rest of our rating. She also has adequate dimensions. There are also several buttons and a tiny segment display on its body. This device has at its disposal a nozzle with a diameter of 0.6 mm. And here a surprise awaits you! The nozzle can be replaced at any time! Yes, this part costs a lot of money. But replacing it is still cheaper than buying a new 3D pen.

However, we will not frighten you. The product can, of course, be damaged. But this will happen only if you do not follow the instructions for use supplied in the kit.

Plastic filaments of ABS and PLA standards are used here as consumables. The thickness of the material can be 1.5 and 1.75 mm. The product comes with three plastic threads. Of course, they all have different colors. And this is at the cost of the device at 2800 rubles! The box with the 3D pen also contains a power supply with a wire tightly soldered to it.

In online stores, you can easily find plastic threads of other colors. Regular replacement of consumables will allow you to create multi-colored three-dimensional objects and even full-fledged volumetric paintings. In short, a 3D pen will help you develop your imagination. It's nice that the speed here is not fixed. It can be adjusted by pressing the corresponding keys. Temperature control is also available here – the maximum product is capable of heating the working material to 230 ° C. It is stated in the characteristics and the minimum temperature is 60 ° C.

It remains to add that the 3D pen has two modes of operation. In the first, the plastic is continuously fed, while in the second, the material comes out only while holding the corresponding button. The weight of the device is 55 g. In a word, the manufacturer has made an excellent product. Of course, you can find fault with him. But not after looking at its price tag.

Advantages

  • Very low cost;
  • Supported plastic of two standards;
  • A large number of adjustments;
  • The set includes three plastic threads;
  • Small size and weight;
  • Nozzle change available;
  • Two operating modes;
  • There is a display.

disadvantages

  • Fixed wire at the power supply.

Myriwell RP100A

Rating: 4.6

MYRIWELL RP100A

Another 3D pen that is easy enough to find in large retail chains. In them, it is in demand mainly due to its low cost. The low price tag is partly due to the complete lack of metal that could be used to create the case. Alas, this model is plastic. However, the assembly turned out to be very reliable, so the product is unlikely to ever fall apart in the hands.

While many other 3D pens have a full-fledged display, albeit small, there is none. Of course, if you get used to it, you can do without it. The switch will allow you to change the speed – there are three options in total. Also, you can easily set the temperature of the working material – it can vary from 60 ° C to 230 ° C. The possibility of replacing the nozzle is also nice. By default, a spare part with a diameter of 0.7 mm is used here. But if you have such a desire, you can purchase a nozzle with a diameter of 0.4 mm. Not every device of this kind provides this opportunity! Isn't this 3D pen perfect?

In fact, certain claims can be made to this model. But I don't want to do this at all. All the disadvantages of the device are insignificant, you quickly forget about them. For example, a short power cord isn't such a big deal if you plug the 3D pen into a power strip. Someone may regret that this is not a full-fledged 3D printer, but entertainment for a couple of days. Well, what did you want to get for 2000 rubles?

Advantages

  • Several body colors to choose from;
  • Three plastic threads included;
  • Comes with two painting stencils;
  • Implemented nozzle change;
  • Low cost;
  • Temperature and speed change possible;
  • Low weight.

disadvantages

  • Plastic case;
  • No display;
  • The power supply has a short cord.

Cactus CS-3D-PEN-A-PN

Rating: 4.5

CACTUS CS-3D-PEN-A-PN

Another representative of our rating, estimated at 2,000 rubles. Its body was also made of plastic, which some might not like. In fact, there is no particular trouble in this. This product is made for use by children, and they would hardly appreciate the metal case. On the contrary, the plastic even plays a plus, since with it the device weighs only 62 g.

Unlike the model discussed above, the Cactus CS-3D-PEN-A-PN includes a display, albeit quite miniature. The product also boasts the ability to change the nozzle. Its diameter, by the way, is 0.7 mm. As for the thread, its diameter should be 1.75 mm. This 3D pen supports PLA and ABS consumables.

Several buttons can be seen on the body of the device. They serve to adjust the speed and temperature of the material. Unfortunately, this device cannot provide a very low temperature – at least this parameter reaches a very impressive 160 ° C. The maximum temperature of the plastic is 235 ° C.

The rest of the 3D pen is nothing special. The kit comes with a starter set of plastic, which can last for several days. More specifically, these are three threads of 3 m in different colors. Power is provided by the AC adapter. Unfortunately, the wire cannot be removed from it, its replacement is impossible. But its length is quite decent, so we will not make a claim. Also in the box with the device is a pen stand, which can be very useful.

If you read the reviews on Cactus CS-3D-PEN-A-PN, you get the impression that absolutely none of the buyers regrets the money spent. Yes, the device cannot be connected to a portable battery. But which 3D pen can you do this with? What people liked the most was the high build quality. Also, everyone appreciated the quick plastic change, which took just a couple of minutes.

Advantages

  • Very low cost;
  • Nozzle replacement available;
  • Both speed and temperature are regulated;
  • High-quality assembly;
  • There is a display;
  • Low weight;
  • The set includes three plastic threads;
  • Two plastic standards are supported.

disadvantages

  • Very low temperatures not available;
  • The wire does not come out of the power supply.

DEXP RP101B

Rating: 4.4

DEXP RP101B

As you know, the DNS trading network has been producing some of the goods under its own brand DEXP for a long time. She also launched 3D pens. DEXP RP101B is the cheapest device in this rating. You can buy it for only 1200-1300 rubles. Of course, for this money, you will not get a perfect 3D pen with any broad functionality. In particular, this model is limited by the heating temperature of the plastic. It is regulated by the corresponding buttons, but the temperature only varies between 180 ° C and 230 ° C.

Despite its low cost, the product is capable of boasting a display. As for the nozzle, its diameter is 0.7 mm. And, which is important, it can be replaced! This will be necessary if, due to careless use, the original nozzle has become unusable.

The length of this 3D pen is 180mm. The weight does not exceed 64 g. Plastic of PLA and ABS standards is used here as consumables. In the box with the product, you can find three three-meter threads of different colors. The device also comes with a stand. As for the power supply, it has an inseparable cable, which can be considered the only serious drawback of the product.

This is perhaps the best choice for the person looking for a 3D pen for their child. This model is in no way inferior to the examples discussed above, while it is much cheaper. Why pay more for the same features? However, more expensive 3D pens are usually noticeably more reliable. If you are going to use DEXP RP101B almost daily, then prepare to face breakdown much earlier than the end of the warranty period.

Advantages

  • Small size and weight;
  • The nozzle can be changed;
  • Two plastic standards are supported;
  • There is a display;
  • Adjustable speed and temperature;
  • Complete with three plastic threads;
  • There is a stand.

disadvantages

  • The power supply won't let you unhook your cable
  • Any low temperature is not available;
  • The reliability cannot be called high.

Conclusion

This is a list of the best 3D pens currently in existence. Of course, we talked exclusively about those models that can be bought in Russian online stores. It seems to us that it makes no sense to devote time to experimental samples, which, if sold, are in very limited editions.
