    Is it all 3D printed (minus the ink, of course)?

    the first pen is fully 3d printed (the spring is a separate file though, since I was afraid it would brake) and the second pen has a normal ballpoint pen spring harvested from another pen since the 3d printed spring did not fit in the model. In both cases minus the ink filling of course. i will try to upload some pictures of the parts separately next week.

    A new picture of the parts separately. a standard ballpoint pen filling is used that can be bought from most office supply stores.


    any questions remarks let me know ;)
