New work with 3D pen in progress

Working with the 3D pen is addictive. You can create actual objects, and that is much different as to drawing.  I don’t need samples, I  just like to create objects, and it is always currious do discover what comes out.  The techniques I know now make it easy to make any object. Also the in-between are fun to watch. I made a few photos of the new work I am.. Read More

3D pen : New work in progress – by Ruud Janssen – December 2016

I am currently working on a new object with the 3D pen from MyRiwell. It is again a larger object, so these take some time. I am using two new colours now. Perl-white and gold. Gives a special effect with the object for sure. Will make some good photos’s later too when it is finished and will get a name. Probaly the objects will be exhibited somewhere soon…… Bewaren

a FaceBook Dicussion – drawing by Ruud Janssen

A FaceBook Discussion is a drawing i made in July 2010 when I was working in Athens. The theme has to do with several discussions on facebook where people sometimes crossed the lines and some friendships were broken. When not talking Face to Face but sitting behind a computer some people tend to overdo it with their words and emotions. When respect is lost, the friendships are lost too.

Video 3D Pen object by Ruud Janssen

New object made with the 3D pen on 7 till 9 October 2016. I used 4 colors ABS plastics to create this larger object. A video is made to show how it looks from different angles. It is an abstract work that is still in progress. So after adding some minor details it will be ready and will get a title too. Not sure yet. Ruud Janssen, Breda, Netherlands

Today I made “The Eyecatcher’s Friend”, another object made with the 3D pen, this time black, grey, white, brown, gold and Beige PLA plastics. The connection is there since the first object has the nodes to detect, and the other object is.. Read More
