LIX explains how it device functions like 3D printers to quickly melt and cool LIX colored plastics to create rigid, freestanding structures. By using the ABS filament, the LIX 3D pen promises to offer greater strength, flexibility, malleability and higher temperature resistance. The ABS filament has a hot plastic smell due to its petroleum-based plastic and begins to melt at 356 °F and works at 446 °F. The PLA filament comes in a wide range of colors and levels of attractive glossy translucency and due to its plant-based origins provides a desirable semi-sweet smell when in use. The PLA filament has slightly less strength and flexibility than ABS and is also sensitive to moisture. Begins to melt at 320 °F and works at 356 °F.

The pen sells for $139.95 with pre-orders scheduled for delivery in May 2016. For more on LIX, visit: http://lixpen.com/
