How is your 3D drawing skills? 3D pen in kickstarter

Yes, literally, 3D drawing skills. This may be just the first step moving from 2D canvas drawing to 3D drawing. Awkward and messy looking in the video but who knows in future what kind of nice artistic pieces get evolved from this? Cant be bothered with 3dsmax? Maybe this will do

Interesting, though I don't see much use for it outside of the novelty.

I think it's just a gimmick, or a toy at best.

From the photos it appears to be the same basic principle as a 3D printer minus the automatic systems.
As a craftsman I see this going right alongside many of my other specialty tools like the glass saw for stained glass or high density grinder for steel.

Oh jeez, I can't wait for this 3d printing hype bubble to burst.
Gimmicky rubbish!

It is a toy, and like any toy that has no rules, it will find a space in niche art as a media to produce it.

I'm loving it, and I don't need it to be useful past providing me with doodling entertainment for it to be worth buying.
I can't wait to see what crazy massive scale ridiculous crap people will figure out a way to make with this.

And how is this a consequence of 3D printing Hype? People have been wanting to do this, and doing it with other shoddy means, for the longest time.
This is something becoming possible, not a new facet of a fad being exploited.

Not that I would consider 3D printing a fad or over-hyped anyway, but I'm sure Gutenberg heard something about his work being a fad back then too

If they could put some serious pressure power on it, it could give a real nice spider man web shooter

That's seriously unreal, like some kind of awesome Harry Potter magic apparatus. Draw your dreams in the air and they will become a reality.

Cool how it starts all 2D and then suddenly they pull a 3D sly one on us. Damned impressive.

I'd be more excited about it if the results didn't look like they'd been set on fire and put out with a horse.

Thats the 3D drawing skills part... Not everyone can make much out of 2D drawings either. It takes time and patience to learn the craft.
