Such a simple idea, yet visionary, revolutionary!

That is awesome!! I totally want one. It's hard to tell from the video if you can really be very accurate, but it is still pretty cool.

Accuracy would defeat the point. This is for rough, quick and dirty artistic and conceptual sketching. If you want engineering-level accuracy then best stick to CAD and 3D printing.

Having said that, just like using a pencil with ruler on paper (do people still do that?), you could use surfaces as a guide, as they did to construct the Eifel Tower model.

Engineering level accuracy is not what I would want/need, but but some of the models looked sort of sloppy. Hopefully those are exceptions and, in general, models will look nice.

I feel like we could use this to make an affordable 3d printer.

I think I am more interested in seeing where this leads. The Dremel sized 'pen' at present is a novelty which I believe would wear off pretty quick. Still pretty amazing though.

Hmmm.... A 3D pen drawing a 3D pen which is drawing the previous 3D pen, anyone?

Something along the lines of this, but in 3d?

$75 estimate price, and some more footage.

It reminds me of an overglorified glue gun, although it's really cool how the 'ink' 'sets' instantly. I may purchase one if it turns out around that price range, so I can't wait for it :D

BUMP!

It looks like these are availble to the masses now. I just saw Think Geek has them:

http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/1927/

only $99

To me, it looks like a glue gun that spits out plastic instead of glue. Still it has potential to make something rough.

I wonder if someone could hook it up to some kind of modified plotter and make it into a cheaper 3D printer?

There are several posts on Instructables.com about making 3-axis CNC routers. It would be easy enough to adapt those to make a 3D printer.

They're fun, but there's really no way you can build anything precise with them. The glue-gun analogy is very apt.

Even though it looks like you can not be very precise while using it, it still looks very fun.

The extrusion head of most 3D printers is actually the simplest part, just a heated piece of metal with a very small hole. The expensive and difficult stuff is the 3 axes mechansim and the control board. Adding the z-axis to a "cheap plotter" would be technically difficult, I think.
