Lix 3D Printing pen was launched today on Kickstarter. The beautifully engineered and crafted pen is blasted past its £30,000 pledge goal in just 2 hours. As of writing, the 3D printing pen has raised £190,055 from its backers.

Called Lix Pen, the 3D printing pen has a sleek design and looks more like a normal ball point pen. It has the similar function as of 3D printers: it melts and cools colored plastic, letting you create rigid and freestanding structures. Claimed to be the world's smallest pen, the Lixpen is lightweight and easy to hold. It has a aluminium body and supports major materials in 3D printers today: ABS and PLA filament. The pen is only 0.55 inches thick and has a LED indicator and two speed buttons.

Using the Lix 3D printing Pen is a lot like using a glue gun. You plug in your power cable on any USB output and wait for an LED heat indicator to show the pen has reached its right temperature, which takes less than a minute. You can then start sketching your creation.

The 3D printing pen is offered in two colors: black matte and white matte. It is now available at a price of £82 ($135) on Kickstarter with an estimated delivery time in December.

According to Anton Suvorov, Co-Founder of Lix, "The most difficult problem for us was to reduce the size of the mechanical parts, reposition them and let them work together. We have met many technological limitation for the production of our parts for Lix Pen however we found successful solutions for that."
