3Dimensions TypeONE Black Fountain Pen (LE - 3D Print)
[3D-TYP1BKFP]
Leading experts in aerospace confirm: 3D printing is here to stay. It creates tangible parts based on digital information, layer by layer, enabling engineers to produce highly complex shapes, including metal parts, in a very direct manner.
And there is the 3Dimensions TypeONE, an affordable 3D printed fountain pen that is equipped with the world抯 first 3D printed titanium nib (patent pending), a creation of Dutch designer and technologist Rein van der Mast. He came up with the world抯 first 3D printed fountain pen in 2013, followed by this totally unique nib in 2016.

Technique and manual craftsmanship combined
Although new technologies are applied, the pen's creation comes from craftsmanship. Even though most tools have become digital, they still have to be guided by human hands. In addition, the finishing and adjustment of the 3D printed nib is done manually and with great care.
Several fountain pen collectors already confirmed that the nib is very pleasant to write with. Both the slit, that is included in the 3D print, as well as the raised edges along the slit help to evenly and reliably distribute the ink. The approach towards nib manufacturing is game-changing.
The other visible parts are carefully designed and 3D printed in durable, strong plastics. The pen (total weight 30 grams) comes in two versions: Black and Silver Grey (made of plastic filled with very small aluminum particles for a modest sparkling effect). The nib in titanium is available in three grades: fine, medium and broad. The pen uses standard international cartridges or the supplied converter.



For collectors, a 3D printed display is separately available. Please click here for the display stand.

A special limited edition
To emphasize the small-series-character of the 3D printing manufacturing process only 99 pieces of both versions will be made, a limited edition for progressive pen enthusiasts as well as seasoned collectors. A special combination of a black and silver grey pen with matching limited edition numbers is also available (please click here for the combination).

3Dimensions, a powerful combination
The TypeONE is brought to the market by 3Dimensions: a partnership of designer and technologist Rein van der Mast with Dennis van de Graaf, owner of the fountain pen shop La Couronne du Comte, and Bart Koster, owner of Promo2000 and pen distributor.
