The 3D printing revolution took an unexpected leap forward this week entering the world of the pen with the 3Doodler, the World’s first 3D printing pen. 3Doodler promises to add an entirely new dimension to sketches, art can now literally jump off the page.
3Doodler burst onto the scene as a brand new Kickstarter project, passing it’s $30,000 funding goal in just a few hours. Now a little over a month later it has collected nearly $150,000 in pledges. Currently just over 1,000 pens are still available for advanced order, they will sell out with days. The first production run of 3Doodlers will ship in September while a second shipment in October will be required to complete the Kickstarter orders.
Like a hot glue gun with a 3D printing head installed the 3Doodler uses a string of ABS or PLA plastic that is fed through the back, heated by the 3D print head, coming out of the pen pliable allowing anyone to draw any object that comes to mind.
