3D Printing Pen Turns Doodles Into Objects

3D Printing Pen Turns Doodles Into Objects

The 3Doodler enables you to create simple 3D objects using ABS plastic just by drawing them.

Emma Hutchings

Instead of using a bulky 3D printing machine, this new device allows you to create 3D objects by just drawing them. The 3Doodler, created by WobbleWorks, is the world’s first 3D printing pen.

It uses ABS plastic (which is used by many 3D printers) to bring your doodles to life. The compact pen draws in the air or on almost any surface. It is easy to use, doesn’t require any software or computers, and simply plugs into a power socket to let you start drawing within minutes.

3D Printing Pen Turns Doodles Drawn In The Air Into Objects

WobbleWorks’ pen aims to make fun 3D creation accessible to everyone. As the 3Doodler draws, it extrudes heated plastic, which quickly cools and solidifies into a stable structure.

3Doodles can be created as flat forms and peeled off paper, as freestyle 3D objects, or in separate parts that can be joined together using the 3Doodler. 3Doodler stencil kits created by the team and the community will be made available online to help you create a wide variety of objects.

The 3Doodler is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, where it has smashed through its $30,000 goal and so far raised over $600,000. A pledge of $75 gets you a 3Doodler pen and two bags of mixed color plastic. Check out the campaign video below:
