"Interesting video, but to me it falls into the category of just because it is possible, would you want to do it that way? It looks like sculpting with a soldering iron, and there are easier ways to get a better finish, such as Sculpey. The joints…"

"Here's a video where an artist is indeed making a poseable figure using a 3D pen. Starting around the 3:30 mark you can see them build a working armature with filaments. Whether this would stand up to the rigors of animation, I can't…"

"The pen instructions just mention PLA and ABS as the plastics it can melt and extrude. The filament does not describe itself as flexible, just 1.75mm PLA. The big reel I bought is the same flexibility as the sample stuff that came with the pen. If…"

"Simon, the filament you have doesn't call itself "flexible," does it? I think there are different brands of filament and some of them are specifically flexible. My hope is that that stuff could be used for making hands and stuff. It…"

"Hi there. The pen I have, which is not the most basic, has an adjustment for flow, so the plastic extrudes faster or slower. Haven't played with this yet, but I expect it will afford more control. The filament I am using is PLA, and this is a…"

"Simon, in the videos I've seen they talk about the pen point being adjustable, so you can get thicker or thinner streams of filament and do more detail. Does your pen have this capability? Also, are you using flexible filament? In some of the…"

"I got a 3D pen for Christmas, with the intention of making things like tree branches and little props, and although I have not used it much so far, it looks to be very good for that. I did some nice rough branches for the inside of a thatched roof,…"

"Those pens are interesting and that video is crazy. I'd guess that the armature and puppet made with the pen is more a demo to show off what the pen can do. I think aluminum armature wire and latex, foam, epoxy putty, and sculpy is a cheaper…"

3D pen with flexible filaments to make puppets?

Pardon me if this has been covered on the forum before, but I did a search and don't see anything about it. I've become curious about 3D pens, particular using the flexible filaments, and I've wondered if anybody has used them in puppet creation. It seems like there might be a lot of potential. Here's a video where a gent uses flexible filaments to make a seahorse, and at the end it looks very flexible indeed.https://youtu.be/38dmWDzRlxMI've also seen…See More
