Hello there. I'm not totally new (still inexperienced) to the fountain pen world as I have some Lamys, mostly Safaris, and a CP1, Logo. I use fountain pens since I was a kid, and I started with a Lamy. 

 

So, I decided to make my own fountain pens, this is my first try with a 3d printer: https://www.thingive...m/thing:3812007

 

I'm here because I need info, especially suggestions about books to read (PDF, ebooks...). I need to know how a fountain pen is made, how the feed works, so that I can attempt to replicate one. 

 

Currently I'm following this blog: https://fountainpend....wordpress.com/ I found a lot of useful stuff in there.

Yes, read his blog. It totally worth the read. At least for me, as I am not an experienced enthusiast. 

 

Thank you for the report.

I received a 3D printed FP from a Kickstarter campaign today. It's definitely a unique piece and writes well so far.

I'm not going to sell anything, just sharing 3D customizable pens. But can you please tell me what pen you bought? I'm just curious to see it. If some rule don't allow you to post here the pen you bought, can you send me a private message? Thank you.

Welcome, glad to have you here.
