What is crafting without a little creativity? With the 3Doodler from WobbleWorks, creativity takes center stage. If you can imagine it, you can build it in minutes.
This is the very first 3D pen of its design. This compact and easy to use gadget allows you to literally draw in air. But, how does it work? And, what can you create with it? Learn more about all the excitement around this new gadget.
How does 3Doodler work?
Basically, you pick a plastic, insert it and start crafting. The 3D pen allows you to easily create rigid three-dimensional art from strands of quick hardening plastic.
The hollow tip at the top of the 3D pen serves a similar purpose as the hole in a glue gun. You simply insert a tube of PLA or ABS plastic into the chamber. The plastic will be heated to its melting point and is then ready to use. There are two speed levels for you to choose from, and when ready you press one and the melted plastic comes out and then will rapidly harden.
What can you create with it?
Anything! From 3-dimensional words to a replica of the Eifel Tower, the doodles you can craft with 3Doodler are limitless.
Just as a 3D printer creates an object layer by layer, you can use this 3D printing pen to do virtually the same thing on your own. With a little practice, your designs can become more and more intricate. 3Doodler fans have already created a 3-D model plane that actually flies, jewelry, key-chains, and a life-size humanoid skeleton.

What are people saying about it?
Since the 3Doodler was supported by a little more than 25,000 backers on Kickstarter, there has been a lot of buzz around the release of this innovative tool.
According to 3DPrint.com, “3Doodler is probably one of the more successful gadgets to emerge from Kickstarter in the last 18 months.”
Justin Mattarocchia, the visionary behind the 3D printed skeleton said, “I love the freedom the 3Doodler offers me in creative design.”
