Pulling our illustrations out of the two-dimensional world and lifting them above the paper they were once confined to, LIX has developed at 3D-printing pen that enables you to create rigid freestanding objects through the process of heating and cooling plastic.

Measuring 6.45 inches long, 0.55 inches in diameter, and weighing a mere 40 grams, its sustainable aluminum body heats plastic to over 300°F forming a hot liquid that solidifies once exposed to the air.
