3Doodler Helps You Forget Those Pricey 3D Printers

Thursday, February 21st 2013. | Miscellaneous

Normally, you will have to design a 3D object or find the already complete model and edit it using a CAD software or sort of before you can start 3D-print it. However, with this 3Doodler 3D pen, you can skip the designing and editing steps and get down to the printing right away. What’s more exciting is that this thing only costs $75. Mind you, a well-built desktop 3D printer, like the DeltaMaker 3D Printer can easily cost you $2,000.

3Doodler : The World's First 3D Printing Pen by WobbleWorks

Basically, 3Doodler is the extruder or print head of a 3D printer disguised into the shape of a pen. That said, even though you can save the cost and time to design the models, you must not expect the same precision as those expensive 3D printers can give. The end result is entirely dependent on your art talent. Still, it looks quite fun in the pitch video. Check it out below!

For beginners, the Wobbleworks team recommends that you start by using the 3Doodler with the guidance of stencil kits or any prints. The plastic layers can be peeled off of the paper and combined later using glue to make a better developed object. Wobbleworks are currently working with Etsy to provide the downloadable stencil kits for all of the backers. Once you feel that your talent has gotten much sharpen, you can dump the prints and draw directly on the air like a maestro.
