3Doodler 3D Printing Pen Smashes Funding Target on Kickstarter

3Doodler 3D Printing Pen Creations

With the $75 3Doodler 3D printing pen you can create things like this.

3D printers are expensive, at least at the moment, and you also have to have some sort of computer design skills to be able to create a 3D object to print. But what if it could just be as easy as just “drawing” a 3D printed object with a pen?

That’s what the 3Doodler is, the world’s first 3D printer in a pen. The 3D printer extrusion head has been put into a pen-like device and it allows you to print ABS plastic in thin air. Just plug it into a power socket and you can print straight away.

A 3Doodler kickstarter project has just been launched and has already raised over $200,000 for WobbleWorks LLC, out of Boston MA. The 3Doodle is priced at $75 and should help bring 3D printing to a much larger audience than is currently achievable with $1000 plus 3D printers.

The 3Doodle looks like it will be a boon to those who have an artistic temperament as you can draw your creations onto a flat piece of paper or in the air. These 3D prints can be combined to create a larger object, like the Eiffel Tower above.

Here’s a video of the 3Doodler in action.
