Ciao. From Italy.



Recommended Posts

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.thingiverse.com/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://fountainpendesign.wordpress.com/ I found a lot of useful stuff in there.

Sorry, that is Pen_Ingeneer, not peningeneer. Someday I have to read through his full blog.

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.

had a while ago a mental exploration on producing an FP on a 3D printer and had a longish discussion with some guys on reddit. As a play and just copying ordinary FPs it works. I wanted to use the peculiarities of 3D printing to get rid of a feed... and make the whole pen out of one piece (excluding the cap, of course). If you are interested, I'll have a look if I can find it again. :rolleyes:

with kindness...
