3Doodler 3D Printing Pen: Your Sketch is Your Concept is Your Final Product

 |  |  |  |  |  February 20, 2013


If you’re a fan of the Naruto manga or anime series, you’ll be familiar with Sai, a ninja whose specialty is making ink drawings come to life. WobbleWorks’ 3Doodler isn’t as awesome as that, but it still comes close. It’s a pen-shaped 3D printer that’s as easy to use as an ordinary pen. And although it’s not quite as cheap as a pen, it’s also the cheapest 3D printer yet.

The 3Doodler works like a hot glue gun, except instead of glue it heats up ABS plastic, which quickly cools down as it exits the tip of the 3Doodler.

Pledge at least $75 (USD) on Kickstarter to reserve your own 3Doodler. This wonder gadget is one of the first big Kickstarter hits of 2013. It hit its target of $30,000 within hours and as of this writing has already garnered almost $600,000 in pledges and is still going strong. It’s easy to see why; this is undoubtedly a major breakthrough in bringing 3D printing to the masses.

With people as smart as the folks at WobbleWorks I am 100% sure that Sai’s technique will become real before I die. And that that technique will kill me.
