3Doodler – the world’s first 3D printing pen
The 3Doodler, the world’s first 3D printing pen, launches today on Kickstarter. Created by the co-founders of WobbleWorks, the patent-pending 3Doodler pen is a brand new way of creating 3D objects and will be the most affordable 3D printing device on the market. Priced from $50 for early backers on Kickstarter, the 3Doodler has been designed to be compact and easy to use, you just plug it into a power socket and can start drawing anything within minutes.
“We wanted to design a 3D printing device that could be used within minutes, without needing any technical knowledge, software or computers. We also wanted it to be affordable as well as fun, so that anyone could 3Doodle!” said Peter Dilworth, Co-Founder & CEO of WobbleWorks.
The 3Doodler has been in development for a year, with early prototypes in production for the first time this month. The first 3Doodlers are expected to be delivered to backers before fall 2013.
“Everyone knows how to use a pen, so we designed a 3D printing pen! If you can scribble, trace or wave a finger in the air you can use a 3Doodler. As you draw, plastic comes out of the pen, is cooled by an integrated fan, and solidifies right in front of you. You can draw on any surface and lift it up into the air to create your own 3D objects,” said Maxwell Bogue, Co-Founder & CTO of WobbleWorks.
