CreoPop, a Singaporean developer of a 3D pen “with cool ink“, raised a funding of undisclosed amount.
The round was led by 500 Startups with participation from Singapore-based venture capital firm Ruvento and number of private co-investors.
The company has also been selected as a finalist in the Innovative World Technologies Category for the 7th Annual SXSW Accelerator competition.
Led by Andreas Birnik, CEO, CreoPop is advancing a 3D pen using light-sensitive ink called photopolymers previously used for professional applications within the 3D printing industry. When CreoPop is operated, the ink is immediately solidified by LED diodes surrounding the nozzle of the pen.
Since no heating is required, CreoPop is safe in a home environment with children and pets around.
The company also offers a large selection of inks available including different colors, elastic ink, magnetic ink, glow-in-the-dark ink, temperature sensitive ink and body paint ink.
