UNBOXED: Reviewing da Vinci 3D Pen by XYZprinting
There has always been a soft spot in my heart for art. That is not to be confused with any notion that I am creative, with most of the artistic abilities fully developed by age eight or nine.
However, my truncated art career was actually very useful when I got my hands on the da Vinci 3D Pen by XYZprinting. The $50 neon orange pen gave me the ability to hone in skills I truthfully never had. Equipped with a few sticks of PLA filament, it's a good idea to go the extra mile and grab the extra six spools for about $30 more because this toy really is addictive once you know what you are doing.
Being completely honest, I've been enamored with the entire 3D pen idea for a while now. People creating realistic homes and lifelike animals instantly stirred up nostalgic feelings of being a kid again. I anxiously awaited for the pen to arrive and tore it open instantaneously. XYZprinting's pen was easy enough to figure out. Plug it in, push plastic into the only feeding hole, and press the down button.
