Yes, Ralph Boy, that about how it went!  I'm a bit amazed at how quickly the material hardens and doesn't immediately collapse on itself - such as at about 0:33 when they did the upward spiral.

 The glue gun connection was probably made in an instant by lots of us on seeing this 'pen'... Then comes... 'That's great!'

And my third thought was quick too... "Darn. Why didn't I think of that?"

Nice call by these guys.

Excellent point, Al. This system could use the same business model that conventional printers now use: sell the "printer" for break-even or even a loss, and make the money off the sale of the printing material.

Apresher, then there will be a more subsidiaries for the materials. That's what happens to the inkjet printer market, now there are many refills to the HP branded printers with the half of the cost of a new HP cartridge.

Yes Elizabeth, A good example for a "Think out of the box"

Any way I believe that because of the marketing, new things will arrive to the market.

Yes AnandY in the future there will be a instant tailor-made chocolate and sweets. And also we will be able to see new innovative designs for eat.

Thanks Laure for the inspiring article,

When doing it by hand without computers I feel that the chance for the mistakes are high, So is there a any possibility of removing a part (Delete). At least before it gets dry.

A new medium for expression, indeed.

It will be interesting to see what artists do with this. (and kids)

We all tend to think about innovations like this as engineers.  Try thinking like an artist about this product!  It allows an artist accomplished in drawing, painting, etc. to readily transfer those skills to scultpure.  To revert to engineering thinking, that's really just moving from a 2D world to a 3D one! My daughter-in-law, the graphic designer, would LOVE one of these toys!

This technology has all kinds of potential, especially if they are able to reduce the cost (maybe $59 for the pen) and then sell the material at higher prices. Not sure about the cost of the material itself but this is really cool stuff.  Excellent post.

Latest Analysis
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
