Pen enthusiasts looking for a sturdy desktop pen stand to display their precious writing implements might be interested in a new CNC-milled design from the AltDynamic team in the form of the Isobrick pen stand. Designed as the “ultimate home for your pens” and inspired by the Isogrid grids used in the aerospace industry, the unique pen stand is available in a variety of different styles and is now available for repurchase through Kickstarter. Early booking confirmation at a special price are now available for the inventive project starting at around $ 74 or £ 56 (depending on current exchange rates).
Isobrick pen stand for enthusiasts
“Welcome to our 14th Kickstarter campaign! We have a track record at Kickstarter for providing unparalleled customer service and delivering quality products. We have had the privilege of sharing our products with over 7,000 supporters around the world. This AltDynamic campaign will be our best yet. This CNC machined aluminum pen stand is designed for those who want their favorite writing implements organized and kept close by, and who want a distinctive receptacle to house them. “
If Isobrick’s crowdfunding campaign successfully achieves its required commitment target and the project completes smoothly, it is expected to ship worldwide sometime in March 2022. To learn more about the Isobrick pen stand project, watch the promotional video below.
“Iso” comes from the Greek isos, which means equal or equal. So isochromatic would mean “monochrome”. Isogrids would therefore mean “same lattice” and got this name because isogrids retain isotropic properties (with the same physical properties). The Isogrid, as it is known in the aerospace industry, is a triangular lattice formation made of ribs, which offers an ideal opportunity to increase the strength-to-weight ratio. Creating these triangular cutouts (NASA sometimes calls them “pockets”) is usually an intensive process, but this whitening method is used on many spaceships, jet engines, racing cars, and other high performance applications. NASA began using isogrids in the early 1970s. The isogrids are predominantly triangular in order to preserve the isotropic properties as well as possible. (Isotropy is not perfect) “
“We offer two versions of the Isobrick. The first is the Isobrick pen stand. This is designed for 6 pens. The second version is the Isobrick Mezzo, which is not designed for pens. It was made upon request and is just a neatly edited piece of desk art. The Isobrick pen stand incorporates an isogrid pattern that is ubiquitous in the world of high performance aerospace applications. The Isobrick pen stand made from a solid block of aluminum is more like a component intended for a Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor than a mere container for your writing utensils. “
