General

Yes you can! You can do so almost immediately, as the filament cools and hardens very quickly after leaving the pen. As long as the paint can adhere to plastic, it can help to beautify your doodles. Spray paint can also be used. We recommend testing your mediums on a small doodle first to ensure you will get the desired effect!

We do not recommend drawing on skin with any of the 3Doodler devices.

The 3Doodler PRO and Create can cause burns if a user attempts to draw on skin.

The 3Doodler Start is designed to be kid-safe with no hot parts. That being said, we don’t recommend drawing directly on skin, as the nozzle of the pen is warm and may be uncomfortable for some. However, the 3Doodler Start Eco-Plastic is completely safe for skin contact, making it the perfect tool for creating wearable creations such as jewellery, masks, glasses, and even earrings! Please take care not to get the warm plastic in your hair as it will be very hard to remove.

PLA melts at a lower temperature than ABS, so we have designed the pen to have two temperature settings, to accommodate material in use at the time of 3Doodling. Please be sure to use the correct setting with the plastic you are using! If you have any questions about it, please feel free to email our friendly customer service team at help@the3doodler.com.
