It's been sitting on my desk ever since, waiting until I had the time and energy to focus on it (and the clear space to photograph it). Having had a whole weekend at home, I made the time to clean up at least part of my studio so I have space to work again. Which also meant space to unpack the IDO3D pen set and see what it's all about.
For such a large box, there's not very much in it:
instruction and tracing sheets, plastic forms to work on, two pens and pen tips, and a spotlight.
I start with the bits that need putting together before use.
The pens come with caps for shipping: unscrew these and screw on the tips that come with the kit.
I was a little surprised that the pens seem to be full of liquid plastic. I expected them to have some sort of extrusion instead: probably through my familiarity with 3D printers.
Next, insert three AAA batteries into the spotlight.
(Unless they're not charged, in which case pop them in the charger and write a blog post while you wait for them to charge. *sigh*)To be continued...
