3D printing Pens can be divided into 2 groups, this classification depends on the material being used. The first group uses regular plastic PLA or ABS filament with the second group printing with resin. The Polaroid 3D printing pen belongs to the first group using plastic materials/filament.

The Polaroid 3d printing pen review
As mentioned, the Polaroid 3D printing pen use plastic material. Therefore, you can use either PLA or ABS and only have to pay attention to the appropriate material thickness. However, this is not an issue as this is the market standard used for other 3D pens as well. If you really want to play it safe, you can also buy the regular priced filament/material directly from Polaroid. Getting started is also similar to other pens which we explain in more detail in our MyGuru 3D printing pen tutorial below.
Advantages & disadvantages
- Good 3D printing pen
- Cheap price
- Additional features as the app
- Unhealthier than resin 3D Printing pens
- No material cartridges (material hangs off the back end compared to resin 3D pens)
The Polaroid 3D printing pen is a mid-range device within the plastic filament 3D pen category. The 3D pen scores with a relatively low price for the good quality. Alternatives are the healthier Polyes Q1 Futurmake (no plastic fumes when in use) or 3Doodler with its filament cartridges (no material roles hanging off the back end).
