If budget isn’t an issue, many of us would probably already have a 3D printer at home. After all, who wouldn’t enjoy printing their own figurines or toy with a personal touch? But then, 3D printers aren’t cheap and the need to have at least some sort of technical knowledge or work with a certain software makes the technology a little more intimidating.
Called 3Doodler, the 3D printing pen doesn’t require software or a computer to create fancy objects. It lets you create a wide variety of 3D shapes and 3D models, including a mini Eiffel Tower, hanging ornaments, pendants, fridge magnets, and more.
The company is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter to raise $30,000 to begin shipping the first batch of orders by August.
The 3Doodler pen measures 180mm x 24mm. And even though it looks pretty and compact, the pen should not be mistaken as a toy because it can get as hot as 270C by a universal 110v or 220v adapter.
3Doodler uses ABS or PLA plastic as its “ink.” Each 3Doodler backed on Kickstarter comes with at least one bag of plastic — each bag will contain ten 1-ft strands of plastic, and each 1-ft strand produces approximately 11 ft of 3Doodling fun.
