The first are devoid of heating elements and are filled with a photopolymer resin. The second for drawing uses the so-called ABS plastic, which heats up to 245 degrees. The full name of the plastic sounds very difficult - Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. In other respects, the principle of operation of both pens is practically the same. 3D pen is a modern idea of what to give to a future architect.
