We created three different pens inspired of the city of Athens. All of the pens in this collection are informed by the Greeks' love of a reciprocating, continuous patterns and textures that weave their way through our ancient home city.
1] 'The Column' This is pretty self-explanatory. This pen is inspired by the columns that can be found all over the cities temples and buildings.
2] 'The Link Fence' The shops in Athens have a variety of ornate security fences to protect their shops when they are closed. This pen was inspired by one of these chainlink designs.
3] 'The Triangle Mesh' Triangular patterns can be found all over the cities ornate buildings both new and ancient.
These pens all feature screw caps to avoid leaks! They are thick, providing a good grip for both left and right handed adults and children.
They have been designed for the Parker Rollerball refill which is a pleasure to write and draw with!
We used an Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer and the models in the photos are printed with 0.4 mm nozzle (you can also use a 0.6mm).
We would love to see your prints! ☺️
3D Print Project Athens (3DPPA) is a new startup that aims to bring a more personal touch to its customers via the manufacture method of 3D printing. The company saw the burgeoning craft scene in Athens and saw an opportunity to use 6+ years of 3D printing experience to give people the chance to own unique, locally inspired and manufactured designs. Happy printing!
