What is the best 3D pen for beginners? Today we are talking about this new technological object that is slowly conquering our homes, and we want to know everything!
3D pen seems like a more voluminous version of a normal pen or pencil, but instead of using lead or ink, the 3D pen works using plastic.

You probably have a lot of questions in your head, how difficult it is to use or how useful it is. Well, using the 3D pen is no different than using a normal pen or pencil. You use it in the same way and there are many other ways you can use it.

Don’t think it’s some kind of weakened version of a 3D printer. While the printer only works in one direction and only with a technical drawing the pen can print anywhere and in any direction. Even in the air.
So more than a competitor for the 3D printer is a complementary object. If you have the printer and want to know how to use the 3D pen attached to the printer you can read this mini guide.

But now let’s go on to illustrate the best 3D pens for each category: enjoy reading!

3D Pen SunLu – Best value for money

The best 3D pen for beginners

SunLu says it’s made for professionals and children. This means that, although it provides many advanced features that could be appreciated by professionals and adults such as 8-level speed and temperature regulation, it also has a child-proof ease of use.

Looking at the packaging, the pen doesn’t really look like something produced for an adult, but we don’t judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a pen by its box. Taking the contents out of the box, you have the pen, some filaments and some silicone cover, anti-burn. This will make your supervising experience much easier, so less dangerous the experience of your child.

As for the user experience of an adult or a professional, it’s a little different than the children’s experience. The use of variable speed and temperature, which is not so useful for children, becomes so in case we wanted to use it at maximum performance. However considering the way the pen looks simple, there’s nothing you can ask for more at this price. Most importantly, the pen also has a screen that displays all the information.
The SunLu pen, in short, is ideal for budget-conscious users, ideal for children and with a good price-performance ratio.

Pro:
You have all the basic options at an attractive and competitive price.
It has enough features to interest experts and children.
The LCD screen is always a welcome addition.

Cons:
It is difficult to distinguish it from another 3D pen or vice versa.

Scribbler 3D Printing Pen V3 – The best-selling pen

The best 3D pen for beginners

This pen has been on the market for quite some time. Perhaps one of the best features of this pen is the fantastic build quality and perfect ergonomics that make it very easy to use.

The pen is available in various colors and you can use filaments of different colors with the pen. The 3D pen is available in 8 colours.
The Scribber pen is light and easy to use. If you are unsure how easy it is to change the filament, it is quite simple.

Honestly, using the Scribbler 3D Pen V3 I have not noticed any significant disadvantages. I did various tests and it passed all of them with flying colours. However, for people used to drawing with a pen or pencil, they may have some initial problems drawing with this pen. Just like all 3D pens, this one has a learning curve. But you can rest assured, this is a great pen.

The pen comes with its support base and several test filaments. In other words you will have at your disposal 10 sections of 1 meter filament for any test you want to do.

Pro:
Incredibly light.
Very responsive and convenient.
The pen is equipped with a large OLED screen that improves usability.
The pen can be used on almost any type of surface.

3D PEN 7TECH – the best way to get serious.

The best 3D pen for beginners

Next on our list is the 7TECH 3D printing pen. This pen is designed to be easy to use. Having said that, the company has assured us that the product will have an incredible silent operating mode. In addition, the pen is equipped with several features that make this 3D printing pen one of the best we’ve ever seen.

The 7TECH 3D printing pen has some advanced features that are welcome additions. For example, it is equipped with one of the best thermal controls we have seen. In addition, you can get information from the pen about the blockage of the filament. Also, if you hate the super-fast or super-long extrusion of many 3D pens, you don’t have to worry. The pen allows you to control extrusion based on your preferred speed.

We’ve only found two problems. Very little filament comes in the package and how hot the pen can be when it is fully operational. The thing to keep in mind is that when you use the pen, the temperature can become extremely high. Therefore the temperature can get to the point where it can cause skin damage if you touch the tip. Having said that, we realized that the filament provided was not enough.

All in all, the 7TECH 3D Pring Pen is one of the best 3D printing pens we have used and is one of the most important 3D pens in this list.

 

Pro:

Easy to use for newbies and veteran artists.
The pen is light and quite thin.
A welcome addition. The 7TECH 3D printing pen is equipped with an advanced unlocking system that prevents clogging of the filament after cooling.
There is an included aluminum spatula that protects your fingers from the hot nozzle.
The 1-year warranty is an additional bonus.

Cons:
The operating temperature can become unbearable.
This pen is not easy to use. (At least it is not suitable for a child)
There are not enough filaments in the package.
