For Those Who Got the 3D Pen...
I ran across this while looking for something else. Does this look familiar?

Amazon Pen

Nah, the buttons are totally different.

Fortunately the pen is very easy to disassemble, it jammed on me very easily.

Yes, futile, that is the correct pen. I searched for YaYa 3D but didn't find that. You, obviously, did better.

After reading that description, I thought, "the description says ABS plastic. I have some of that - I'll give it a try."

I have some Army Green ABS courtesy of one 3D Geek Box that I got. And I am amazed... The pen works very well with ABS. PLA was a problem because it came out hot enough that I couldn't do a vertical loop (up, over and back down) - it just collapsed because the plastic was too hot - even with a fan blowing across the work surface. But with ABS - no problem - even without the fan. Almost no oozing, either.

Only con I have is that after about 2 minutes of continuous extrusion, it stops. Give it about 15 seconds to come back up to heat and it works well again.

I think it might get a bit too hot in there, and the heat can creep up into the extruder motor. I had some filament get stuck in there, had to dismantle it (fortunately not too hard).
