The creators of the MAGIGOO 3D printing adhesive for PLA and ABS filaments have released a promotional video also showing the product in action how it helps the 3D printed part to stick while the build plate is hot and how easily it is removed when the build plate gets cold. MAGIGOO is supposed to work with both ABS and PLA materials (as well as others most likely) and has been specifically designed to keep the 3D print firmly stuck to the bed while printing thus resolving the “first layer not sticking” problem. We are expecting to see the product very soon on the market and to be able to test it personally and share our experience with you as well.

lix-3d-printing-pens

The smallest and coolest looking 3D printing pen called LIX is now available for pre-order with a price set at $139.95 USD with $10 USD off the regular price. For that price you will get the Lix 3D pen, External Power Adapter, 1 bag mixed color ABS filament and 1 bag mixed color PLA filament (bag contains 40 rods refills). The LIX 3D printing pen is available in either black matte color or white matte color, and you can get additional bags of ABS and PLA filament each of which contains 40 straight rods 8 inches long (20cm) for $10 USD. There is no exact delivery date available yet, but the pre-order website says “delivery in autumn 2015”, so it seems you ill not have to wait much. We are very much tempted to pre-order one just because it looks so cool, not that we need a 3D printing pen or are going to be using it much if we get one.

Magigoo is an upcoming easy to use 3D printing adhesive designed to address “the first layer not sticking problem” – pretty much the most common problem found in Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing. This problem occurs when the print does not stick well and detaches itself from the printing platform ruining itself, that is why perfecting the first layer is vital to get a great foundation for the rest of the print and prevent issues like warping on the edges or failed prints. This will save you valuable time and filament and there are quite a lot of products designed to help you in that, but most of htem are either not universal enough or do not work as well as you’d expect them to.

Magigoo is a product deigned to get the perfect first layer thus assuring perfect prints and it is universal enough to support both PLA and ABS filaments and most likely others as well. But it is not only about having the 3D printer part stick well to the build plate, but also to be easily removable after the print is finished and Magigoo should help with that as well. It has maximum adhesive properties at the operating temperature of both PLA and ABS filaments and allows for the print to be easily detached upon completion once the print has cooled down making 3D printing a lot easier and problem free.

The Magigoo 3D printing adhesive should come in an easy to use applicator making it very straightforward to apply onto the build plate for a hundred or so prints. Note that the adhesive paste must be allowed to dry completely before starting to print and it can be easily cleaned with water after the print is finished. An applicator bottle of Magigoo should be compatible with various printing surfaces and should be at an affordable price when it becomes available very soon.
