Nib Tipping Sizes for Fountain Pens

Nib tipping is the surface area or actual portion of the fountain pen nib that makes contact with paper. It is also the portion of the nib used for writing. With many nibs you can actually see a small amount of material that may look like a bubble on the very end of the nib. Different nib sizes have different widths of tipping material. This width is what we refer to as the nib tipping or size. The larger the surface area of the tipping the broader the line the pen will lay down. Wider nibs such as a broad or stub will have a wider tipping than finer nibs. There is no standard in the industry for what width of the nib tipping constitutes a particular nib size. Different brands have various sizes for the same size nib and even nibs within one brand may vary slightly. For the most part Japanese nibs run finer than their western counterparts.

We have compiled a tipping size chart for the most popular brands we carry to give you an idea of the sizes. This may help you when selecting a nib for a new brand you have not used as you can compare one brand nib size to another.

Gourmet Pens: Review: Pilot Hi-Tec-C 0.3mm Gel Ink Pen

This is a pen that is long overdue for review. Given how many I own and how popular it is, I’m not sure why I haven’t already reviewed it! In this post, I’ll be reviewing the Pilot Hi-Tec-C in 0.3 mm.

Top to bottom: Mauve, yellow ochre, venet, khaki brown.  A simply designed pen.

This pen is one that a lot of Japanese stationery lovers (in other words, JetPens fans) are familiar with already. What others (and haters) probably wonder is, what’s so great about this pen?

Easy color identification.
And easy tip size identification!

The pen’s design is very simple and straight forward. It has a hexagonal clear plastic barrel and a clear cap. The pen can be posted and the cap is very snug both posted and closed. The tip of the cap and the end plug are color matched to the ink, a feature I find very useful. Especially when one has many Hi-Tec-Cs…The color plug in the cap also is labelled with the nib size, which is very convenient, given that you can get multiple nib sizes in the same color! I love the clear barrel because I can see how much ink is left in the pen. I don’t care much for the body besides it being clear. It’s not outstanding and it’s not that comfortable to hold.

There is no real grip to speak of. The area where a grip would normally be placed is ridged in rings. Some people love this, some people hate it, some are indifferent. To me, I think it’s more useful than no grip at all, so I won’t complain much. It could certainly be softer though.

The part about the pen that I enjoy is the ink and the writing experience. Even the micro tip 0.3mm can write smoothly and consistently. It is certainly a sharper writing experience than when you pull out a gel pen with a 0.7mm tip (like a Uni-ball Signo RT 0.7mm, for example). But surely, you don’t purchase a 0.3mm pen with the expectations of a butter tip!

That’s a tiny tip, yessir.
Top to bottom: a 0.3mm tip, a 0.4mm tip, and a 0.5mm tip. 

The 0.3mm micro tips are fabulous for intricate details, tiny lines, and crisp, precise writing. I prefer writing on normal paper, not glossy/coated papers or papers that are fibrous/textured. This is because the tip is so thin that it can scratch up fibers, and stop ink flow. Normal paper works best for me – like the Leuchtturm 1917 notebook. I have found the Pilot Hi-Tec-C in 0.3 mm is less scratchy than the Pentel Slicci in 0.25mm but that’s just my opinion.

Seriously. Look at the detail on that.
MAMA MIA!

I have had some of my 0.3 mm Hi-Tec-Cs in my pen cup since 2010. Some have been sitting horizontally, some vertically, some a combination of the two over time. I began to worry that they would dry out and stop writing sometime last year. Surprisingly, they all still write. For the ones that have never been used, it only takes a few scribbles to get them going, and then they write as though they’re brand new. For the ones who have been used before but were then shelved for a little while – same thing – they write perfectly once I scribble a wee bit. And having to “get the ink going” is not abnormal. And the fact that these pens have been shelved for two years but still write like they’re new is pretty awesome and impressive. And a relief for me, because I have like…thirty Hi-Tec-Cs. At least. And the ink lasts a good long while for normal use.

Things To Think About
Obviously, the tip is tiny. If you are a heavy handed writer, you will have to be careful and make conscious effort not to write too hard or press too hard because you can certainly bend the tip. The tip is a thin needlepoint type (still a rollerball, just very skinny), not a tapered rollerball type like that of the Uni-ball Signo DX micro tips (which tend to be sturdier).

Some people have raised the issue of getting the pen to start writing. I don’t doubt that this could be a problem but it’s never happened to me. A few scribbles and mine always work. I bought these pens expecting I would need to get them started for writing and this doesn’t bother me.

Overall
The Pilot Hi-Tec-C in 0.3 mm is a pretty classic pen. If you are totally unfamiliar with micro tips, or you are a heavy handed writer, you may want to think about a different micro tip pen (for example, the Uni-ball Signo DX micro tips). If you only like really smooth, wet, buttery pens, this pen is not for you. If you are comfortable with writing with fine tips, or you want outstanding precision lines, or you just love the array of colors, I highly recommend the Pilot Hi-Tec-C in 0.3 mm. In fact, what initially won me over and made me order these was the array of colors because no other micro tips come close to this rainbow!

[User Guide] Top Six Questions about the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G – Samsung Newsroom USA

Many people want to test the new Galaxy Z Fold3 with its immersive screen, S Pen, reliability and wide functionality.However, the doubts of individual users who have never worked with folding devices before can also be understood: the new smartphone has a number of advanced features that are unusual for many.

For those who do not yet know how to use such gadgets as efficiently as possible, the Samsung editorial team has studied the new product and scenarios for working with it in detail. In this article, we will tell you how the Galaxy Z Fold3 is in business, how comfortable it is in the hand, what innovative features it has and what the S Pen, which is included in the package of a foldable smartphone for the first time, is capable of.

Question 1: Is it convenient to use Galaxy Z Fold 3 taking into account the “non-standard” dimensions of the device?

The

Galaxy Z Fold3 is lighter, thinner and already the previous model of the series, so the new smartphone has become not only more portable, but also more comfortable in the hands of users. The folded width of the device is 67.1 mm, which is 0.9 mm less than the previous generation.This means that the smartphone will be comfortable to hold even in a miniature palm.

The Galaxy Z Fold3’s fingerprint reader is located just under the thumb for added convenience when working with the device’s large outer screen. Thus, you no longer have to touch the screen with your fingers to unlock your smartphone. Smooth top, bottom and side edges of the case also make working with the gadget more comfortable.

Question 2: How strong and durable is the smartphone Galaxy Z Fold 3 in everyday use?

With the Galaxy Z Fold3 water resistant, users can confidently use their smartphone wherever they are, in any weather. The device has a water resistance rating of IPX8 1 , which means that it can withstand immersion in fresh water to a depth of 1.5 m for up to 30 minutes.So you can safely use the Galaxy Z Fold3 to find a route and study the map on a rainy day, or browse recipes without wiping your hands after washing.

Galaxy Z Fold3 makes life easier for the owner thanks to its durability and reliability. In particular, new screen protectors on the main display increase screen durability by 80 percent over its predecessor. It also features Armor Aluminum and improved Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus ™, some of the toughest materials ever used in a smartphone.

With such protection, you no longer have to worry about scratching your phone when you put it in your purse or pocket with other items, and the gadget will always be at your fingertips when you need to call or take photos.

Question 3: Is the large main screen really that convenient and useful when browsing content?

The 7.6-inch main screen of the Galaxy Z Fold3 is fully unlocked when watching videos.By placing the camera under the surface of the display (Under Display Camera), you can fully immerse yourself in your viewing without being distracted by cutouts and other unnecessary elements. A similar design was achieved by installing light-absorbing pixels above the camera to increase light transmission, and accurately calculating the distance between the points. And since the smartphone’s screen is about 29 percent brighter than the previous model, the novelty provides high-definition images in direct sunlight, without the need to block the screen from the sun.

Plus, the Galaxy Z Fold3 has a 120Hz refresh rate for both the main and external screens, making scrolling and media playback incredibly smooth. In conditions where it is more convenient to use an external screen, for example, in public transport during rush hour, the user can read news and watch videos, enjoying smooth transitions and scrolling of pages.

Question 4: What’s the best way to use the Galaxy Z Fold3’s productivity features?

Foldable Galaxy smartphones have long been helping users to work more efficiently with Multi-Active Window, which allows you to split the screen between different applications.For example, you can view your schedule while working with e-mail or build a route to the place of the next meeting, while communicating in the messenger.

The Galaxy Z Fold3 now has a taskbar that helps you quickly and easily switch between apps. From it you can not only launch one of them without going to the main screen, but also open several programs at once.

Another new feature in the Galaxy Z Fold3 is the Flex mode panel, which is available when the smartphone is tilted at an angle.Open the Labs menu (Preferences → Advanced Features) and select the Flex Mode Panel option. After that, when launching applications compatible with the function, a panel will automatically appear on the screen to control the recording of the image on the screen, adjust the brightness and volume settings. Thanks to this, users do not have to fully open their smartphone for full access to the settings, which is especially useful when you need to turn down the volume, take a screenshot or increase the screen brightness.

Question 5: What camera functions are available exclusively on Galaxy Z Fold 3?

A Galaxy Z Fold3 camera that lets you create true masterpieces. In Capture View, users can view, delete, and share the footage they just captured without having to go to Gallery.

After launching the camera, click on the image viewer icon in the upper left corner of the screen.If it is highlighted, the photos you just took can be viewed on the left half of the screen. By pressing and holding a finger on the image, users can easily delete bad shots or send good ones to friends. It also helps a lot when you want to capture high-quality fast-moving subjects such as children at play, pets, or people playing sports.

Question 6: What are the advantages of the S Pen when working with a large screen?

The

Galaxy Z Fold3 is the first foldable phone to support the S Pen.Users can use the S Pen to draw or take handwritten notes on the screen.

To jot down your ideas while watching online lectures in Flex mode, simply launch the Notes app by double-tapping the bottom half of the screen while holding down the button on the S Pen.

In addition, the S Pen allows you to easily enter difficult-to-type characters such as Chinese or Japanese characters. What’s more, if you click the convert text button before you start writing, your handwritten notes will automatically be converted to typed text.Samsung plans to release two types of S Pen for foldable devices: the S Pen Fold Edition exclusively to work with the Galaxy Z Fold3 and the Bluetooth-enabled S Pen Pro, which can be used with select 2 tablet models.

The advanced functions of a smartphone do not end there. To provide users with the best folding experience, Samsung Electronics is constantly working with a number of partners to develop apps optimized for the Galaxy Z Fold3’s large screen, including Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Office and Google Duo.

Do you want to improve your efficiency, take advantage of unique features and fill your daily life with pleasant emotions? Galaxy Z Fold3 can help you with that.

1 IPX 8 rating was assigned based on the results of tests with a smartphone immersed in fresh water to a depth of 1. 5 m for up to 30 minutes. Devices with this rating are not recommended for beach or pool use and are not dustproof.

2 S Pen sold separately. The S Pen is only supported on the main screen of the Galaxy Z Fold3, the screen is only compatible with the S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro. All other S Pen models and other devices not designed to work with the Z Fold3 (including models from other manufacturers) may damage the screen.
S Pen Pro is compatible with S Pen-enabled devices (Z Fold3, S21 Ultra, Galaxy Note series, Tab S7 FE, Tab S7 and S7 +, Tab S6 Lite, Tab S6, Tab S4, Tab S3, Tab Active Pro, Tab Active3, Tab Active2, Tab Active, Tab A 8.0 2019 with S Pen, Tab A 10.1 2016 with S Pen, Tab A 9.7 with S Pen, Tab A 8.0 2015 with S Pen, Note Pro – 12.2, Note 8.0, Note 10.1 2012/2014, Galaxy Book Pro 360, Galaxy Book Flex2, Galaxy Book Flex S Pen, Galaxy Book Flex 5G, Galaxy Book Flex α S Pen, Galaxy Book 10.6, Galaxy Book 12.0, Chromebook Plus V2, Chromebook Pro, Notebook 7 spin, Notebook S51 Pen, Notebook 9 Pen, Notebook 9 Pro ).

90,000 I have been walking for two weeks with the new Samsung Galaxy Fold 3. Contradictory impressions, just like two halves

Samsung’s line of flexible-screen smartphones cannot be dispassionately evaluated.It’s still an overly odd form factor for a gadget, and the Galaxy Fold 3 is catching all the money. My test copy was groped by all my friends, because as soon as you get this smartphone out of your pocket, you immediately hear: “ oh, is this that new Samsung? Let me have a look! “.

In two weeks I even got used to Galaxy Fold 3. I got used to using only the external screen, I got used to carrying a cloth for cleaning the screen and I got used to not using a smartphone in a branded case.

Samsung has released a gadget that you are not ashamed to take out of your pocket and become the center of attention of others for a few minutes.If this is not enough for you, I sincerely recommend Galaxy Fold 3. And for everyone else, I will tell you a little more impressions, summing up which I can make a verdict: Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 is an excellent innovative smartphone, but most ordinary users simply do not need it.

How the Galaxy Fold 3 differs from the Fold 2

Left Galaxy Fold 2, right – new Fold 3.

At first glance, you will not notice any changes, but they are. And very significant, I must say:

▪️ Added full protection against water according to IPX8 standard
▪️ Aluminum frame around the case and hinge element became stronger
▪️ Protective glass updated with Gorilla Glass Victus
▪️ New protective film on flexible screen, 80% stronger
▪️ Added support for 120 Hz , and both screens operate at this frequency
▪️ New Qualcomm Snapdragon 888
processor ▪️ Front camera hidden under the screen
▪️ Added support for S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro stylus

These updates show the honest work of the engineers, but in terms of the custom experience , almost nothing has changed. Although I’m lying, has become a little worse than : now it is more difficult to open the gadget, because there are no serifs or corrugated zones on the edges so that your fingers do not slip in the process of opening the halves.

But in the new “Fold” there is one important improvement : the external screen has become larger and it is more or less usable.

On the rear panel, the design of the camera unit has been changed. They stick out from the body, so that on a flat surface the smartphone turns into a “swing”.

A branded flip cover will help to cope with this, which can be purchased separately in different colors.

The dimensions of the Galaxy Fold 3 are 67.1 x 158.2 x 16 mm when folded and 128.1 x 158.2 x 6.4 mm when unfolded. Weight – 271 grams.

A “sandwich” made of folded halves is quite difficult to store in a jeans pocket, as well as in any other. Learn to get used to the discomfort at first.

For several days I shifted the smartphone from one pocket to another, trying to find the best option, and by the end of the first week of use, I was surprised to notice that I had completely abandoned some things, because wearing the Galaxy Fold 3 in them is banally inconvenient.

As in the previous generation, the “third fold” in the closed state has a gap between the halves of the screen, which gets dust. Even if you put on brand new jeans, whose pockets saw no keys, no change, no pellets.

That is why carrying a cloth for cleaning the screen in two weeks has become a habit.

But all these inconveniences are forgotten, one has only to settle in a quiet place and open the gadget, showing the world a magnificent screen.The next few paragraphs are about him.

Two screens in one smartphone. How to use it?

Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 has two screens: an external 6.2-inch HD + Super AMOLED matrix with a resolution of 2268 × 832 pixels and an internal flexible 7. 6-inch QXGA + Dynamic AMOLED matrix with a 2208 × 1768 pixel resolution.

Both screens are non-standard: the outer one is too narrow for full use, and the inner one is too wide. You have to constantly choose from which screen it is more convenient to reply to a message in Telegram, which screen to access the Internet, watch a video, open a game, and so on.Any interaction with a smartphone poses a dilemma for the user: how will be more convenient for me?

After a few days, you get used to using only the external screen for messengers, and the internal screen for YouTube and other entertainment. But the discomfort remains: it is simply inconvenient to keep the smartphone open in the subway and on the move, the screen is too large and takes all the attention.

The external screen, on the other hand, is still too narrow for comfortable typing, because the keyboard has narrow letters that you constantly miss.And these are not the fattest fingers in the world.

Yes, if you want, you can get the hang of using swipes, but swiping on an Android keyboard is different from swiping on an iPhone: the frequency of false word definitions is too high.

And no, I didn’t make mistakes on purpose. On the iOS keyboard, I type just as quickly, but for some reason I don’t miss the necessary letters .

As for the strip at the place of the fold of the screen: it is, and you have to put up with it.

Does not interfere too much, practically does not distort colors, if you look at the screen directly – it is practically invisible.

Performance, sound

Yes, the smartphone is productive. Nothing lags or slows down, even if you launch any application or game on an external screen, and then open your smartphone so that the same application “goes” to the main big screen.

While playing the same Genshin Impact, the gadget heats up noticeably, and when the graphics settings are set to maximum, it warns of a high load on the system.

The split-screen feature, when you can run two applications at the same time, turned out to be quite convenient. I enjoyed using it several times on the subway.

The split screen function is very convenient. You can use any two programs in parallel.

The only problem is that everything that happens on the screen is seen with pleasure by others, so you shouldn’t do this in public.

Stereo sound, loud enough, there are no complaints about this point.Anyway, you immediately connect the headphones and put the smartphone into silent mode.

Verdict: you buy a smartphone with two screens, but you use one

Two weeks behind, and the last time I opened the Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 was the day before yesterday, because once again I showed this unusual gadget to one of my friends.

I am in no way belittling the excellent work of the company’s engineers who have done a lot of work on the errors of previous versions of this gadget, but unfortunately, I have to admit: not everyone can afford to use both screens.

So I’ll just repeat what I wrote about Galaxy Fold 2 a year ago:

If you have all this, you walk in a suit and decide important issues – you can safely spend 159,990 rubles. on this hybrid of a tablet and an under-smartphone. Interested glances from colleagues and girls on Fridays at the Gipsy or Icon Club are guaranteed.

Although the third generation has gotten better, the opinion about this smartphone has not changed.

Wildberries never ceases to amaze

Recently, on the well-known trading floor, the range of materials for our additive manufacturing workers has been expanded. Most of my coils are from there. Recently I came across such an interesting little thing: https://by.wildberries.ru/catalog/34767470/detail.aspx?size=72987674&targetUrl=LC

Just Petg without snot. I would like to say “Chinese noun name”, it turned out to be Russian. Already interesting. The seller has no other filaments – only PETG and women’s suits. Unusual assortment, atypical.

I ordered an ivory spool.

Unmarked kraft carton.

The reel caused a déjà vu sensation:

Looks like something … Is this?

No, not that. Maybe the legendary Guinness foam?

No, this is not about the color, but about the coil. A characteristic large hole in the center – and the logo dispelled all doubts:

That’s funny … white PETG under the Funtastique trademark also turned out to be U3print. And I was going to compare nozzle formation with him … and then it turns out that you have to compare with yourself?

I will test using http: // retractioncalibration. com /. Ender 3 Pro printer, 0.6mm nozzle from triangles. In the first figure, the nozzle was a Chinese name. White and ivory – U3print, black – Bestfilament, all petg.

In order not to overload the description, I will say that with a cheap Chinese nozzle, the snot does not go away at all, they do not rush to leave the best filament either, both U3prints go by 4 (white) or 5 mm (ivory) even at a low speed of about 20 mm / min.

And plus one good color. Opaque porcelain.Suitable for printing dolls, although the ABS-MAKER color is more transparent and “livelier” seemed. The eyes of the big doll are also from U3print – this time from the U3FAN 3D pen set. You are so many-sided …

The conclusion from the situation is this: if you see a filament with an incomprehensible name on a wildberry, it will turn out to be U3print. With no exceptions!
