CreoPop today announced that the company has launched five new 3D inks for its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. CreoPop is the world’s first 3D pen with cool ink allowing users to create any 3D designs they want.
“We are delighted to bring five new 3D inks to the market. With the new additions, we now offer eight different ink types for CreoPop in a wide range of different colors,” said Andreas Birnik, co-founder and Marketing Wizard at CreoPop. “Other 3D pens use solid thermoplastics so they cannot offer the same exciting ink properties as CreoPop. With a collection of eight ink types, CreoPop enables users to create versatile 3D designs.”
The following five inks have been introduced for use with CreoPop:
- Aromatic ink - Create nice smelling objects
- Body-paint ink - Make temporary tattoos and henna designs
- Conductive ink - Try out science experiments with wires and diodes
- Elastic ink - Draw elastic objects
- Glittering ink - Make glittering designs
This is in addition to the existing three types of ink:
- Standard ink - Plain ink in many different colors
- Glow-in-the-dark ink - Ink that glows-in-the-dark
- Temperature sensitive ink - Ink that changes color with temperature
CreoPop uses stereolithography and light-sensitive ink called photopolymers. While this has previously been used for professional applications within the 3D printing industry, CreoPop is the first application of the technology in a portable consumer device. When CreoPop is operated, the ink is immediately solidified by UV diodes surrounding the nozzle of the pen. This is in contrast to other 3D pens that typically rely on heating ABS and PLA plastic to temperatures of around 250 degrees Celsius / 480 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition to representing a safety hazard, melting plastic also emits an unpleasant smell which is avoided with CreoPop.
“Our amazing collection of inks is at the very core of what makes CreoPop special. With eight inks, we now provide a really exciting experience for users,” said Dmitry Starodubtsev, co-founder and Übergeek at CreoPop. “Going forward we plan to develop additional inks as well as to produce inks for commercially available 3D printers to bring the CreoPop experience beyond the pen.”
CreoPop is the world’s first 3D pen with cool ink. In contrast to other 3D pens, there are no hot parts, no melting plastic and no unpleasant smell. Instead, CreoPop uses photopolymers that are solidified using UV light to let users create amazing 3D designs. Since no heating is required, CreoPop is safe in a home environment with children and pets around. The most innovative feature of CreoPop is the large selection of cool inks available including different colors, elastic ink, magnetic ink, glow-in-the-dark ink, temperature sensitive ink and body paint ink.
CreoPop is a venture-backed company based in Singapore.
