Exlicon Multi Shape: A Needle-Free Drawing Tool

Revolutionizing Precision Drawing with Innovation and Practicality

Exlicon Multi Shape, designed by Lee Pik Shan, is a groundbreaking drawing tool that combines functionality, precision, and ease of use. This needle-free compass and drawing tool offers a new and improved way to draw circles, ellipses, and other geometries without damaging the drawing surface. With its unique features and versatile design, Exlicon is set to revolutionize the world of precision drawing.

Traditional compasses have long been used to draw circles and other shapes. However, their sharp points can puncture the paper, leaving unwanted marks. Exlicon Multi Shape addresses this issue by eliminating the sharp point, making it safe to use on any drawing material. The tool also prevents the circle's center from slipping, ensuring accurate and precise drawings.

Exlicon Multi Shape consists of a base, long/short ruler, and water drop-shaped ruler. These components are connected by magnets, allowing for seamless and effortless attachment and detachment. The tool can be easily adjusted to draw circles, ellipses, pentagrams, hexagons, and other geometries with a golden ratio. With over 50 dimensions for circles and over 100 sizes of arcs, Exlicon offers unparalleled versatility.

One of the key strengths of Exlicon Multi Shape is its ability to draw ellipses with precision and ease. Unlike traditional ellipse templates with fixed shapes and dimensions, Exlicon allows users to alter the eccentricity and dimensions of the major and minor axis of the ellipse. This flexibility enables artists, architects, and designers to create intricate and customized designs effortlessly.

The design and realization of Exlicon Multi Shape involved the use of aerospace-grade aluminum and stainless steel, ensuring exceptional durability, strength, and lightweight characteristics. The magnetic wings are constructed with high-grade N58 neodymium magnets, providing a sturdy and secure connection to the base. The tool's design incorporates advanced fluid dynamics principles, making it suitable for both left and right-handed users.

During the development process, the design team faced several challenges. Creating a needle-free tool that could draw precise shapes without damaging the drawing surface required extensive research and prototyping. The team also had to ensure that the magnetic wings were easy to attach and detach, while maintaining the tool's precision and ease of use. Through meticulous testing and refinement, these challenges were overcome, resulting in a tool that offers a new and improved drawing experience.

Exlicon Multi Shape has already garnered recognition for its innovative design. It was awarded the Bronze A' Design Award in the Art and Stationery Supplies Design category in 2023. This prestigious award recognizes designs that exhibit strong technical and creative skills, contributing to quality of life improvements. With its practicality, precision, and versatility, Exlicon Multi Shape is set to become an essential tool for artists, designers, and architects worldwide.

Experience the future of precision drawing with Exlicon Multi Shape. Whether you're a professional artist or a hobbyist, this needle-free drawing tool will elevate your designs to new heights of accuracy and creativity.
