The team at LIX are pitching this as a new generation in 3D printing with a design smaller than any other pen on the market today. It takes less than a minute to heat up and you’ll be ready to create unique designs simply by drawing in the air! It works by melting and cooling colored plastic dynamically as you draw in the air to form anything you can imagine and the best part is it can be run on power supplied from a USB 3.0 port.
