Basically, what you now have is a “pen” that lets you draw, with a plastic compound, a full three dimensional item.
It is worth noting that the level of precision that this pen provides is not that high, so the idea of actually drawing a gear or any other high precision item isn’t here yet. However, this brand new device opens up some really interesting new capabilities and will likely create some new CAD market dynamics. Read full article »
