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.

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.

Thinking like engineers!

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.
