3D printers can be a lot of fun, but unless you have a technical understanding of often-complex modeling software, you are restricted to templates you can only load and print. If only it were as easy as picking up a pen and drawing in 3D space with some kind of 3D pen printer.
That’s the thinking behind the 3Doodler 3D pen printer. It works like any additive printer, material is fed into the device, and it is heated to a melting point and then layered creating a 3D model. Unlike other 3D printers, this one is freeform and held in your hand allowing spontaneous expression of any idea in 3D Space. If you can think it, you can draw it. I can see this thing being perfect for arts and craft time in business meetings, allowing anyone to express a new idea in minutes. If you want to do multiple colors, just change the material and keep going.
The 3Doodler 3D pen printer can also be used to decorate other stuff like cell phone cases and even make small repairs on plastic objects. They have several stencils planned to get your ABS plastic juices flowing and are even collaborating with Etsy wire artists. While this sounds like an amazing evolution of doodling and fun for the entire family, they are warning that this is not a toy. The tip can reach 270 degrees Celsius and cause bad burns, so parents; absolute strict supervision is probably a good idea.
The 3Doodler will be coming out this fall and their Kickstarter goal has already sailed more than four-thousand percent over their target.
