Due to their ease of use, functionality and material compatibility, 3D pens are becoming increasingly popular in the additive manufacturing market. Based on the FDM process, 3D pens are for some an alternative to desktop 3D printers, although the finishes are not as precise. In fact, they allow users to manufacture all kinds of parts giving free rein to their imagination and creativity, at a relatively affordable price. Polaroid has entered the market with its new 3D pen called “Candy Play”, which allows users to create candies from edible filaments.
With an elegant and ergonomic design, the 3D pen adapts to any hand shape depending on the manufacturer. For example, the shape of Candy Play and the position of the buttons have been designed in such a way that operation is pleasant and natural. In addition, its characteristics mean that the Candy Play 3D pencil can be used by both right-handed and left-handed people. As we said before, the Polaroid 3D pen does not use conventional thermoplastics, but edible filaments. And for those who are worried about the sugar content of the strands, it’s not a problem! Polaroid specifies that although their filaments have different flavors, they are all sugar free.
How can Candy Play 3D Pen be used?
With its 3D pen, Polaroid offers everyone the opportunity to make their own sweets. You don’t need to be an expert in 3D food printing to do this, just follow the company’s steps to get the best results and surprise your loved ones. And if you’re short on inspiration, Polaroid has put several replicable models on their website that you can then try out at home. Delivered with 6 different flavours, each user can choose their favorite filament to make candies. It only remains to be creative and make original candies.
As for the technical features, thanks to its USB C port, Candy Play is compatible with the most popular laptop chargers. Finally, to ensure safety, the 3D pen has an auto power off function after 8 minutes of use. With the design freedom that 3D pens offer, the possibilities are nearly endless. Once you have become familiar with the 3D printing technique through the offered models, you can go further and freely create your own models.
