The Poyles Q1 by Future Make has been designed to appeal to adults and children alike

The Poyles Q1 is a next-generation 3D printing pen developed by startup company Future Make. Quick to form and convenient to carry, it includes numerous safety features so it can appeal to adults and children alike, letting them safely create three-dimensional sculptures out of plastic.

Other 3D sketching pens currently available work by melting plastic at high temperatures, produce a burning odor, and have large power requirements. The Polyes Q1 replaces the ABS/PLA plastic with photo-polymers that harden when exposed to the blue light from the pen tip. This is a lot safer and requires less power.
