Occasionally we earn some ink. Here's a small sample of what people think about the latest version of the world's first 3D printing pen.
"If there was a definition of a ‘crowdfunding success’, this would have been it."
"Its much more crisper, tiny and neat."
"I held the 3Doodler 2.0 in my hand and was impressed with how much WobbleWorks managed to slim it down."
"Among the highlights from the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show."
"The makers of the first popular 3D-printing pen 3Doodler have unveiled a smaller device, which weighs just 50 grams."
"Work from a template or free sketch like a modern-day Michelangelo."
"We’re sure we’ll be 3Doodler daVincis by the time the device ships."
"(It) has been used by Prince Harry and David Cameron. I use mine to draw dinosaurs."
"Ready to take the nascent creative platform to the next level with a smaller pen that works better."
"It's not a huge surprise that it's back with version 2.0"
"It allowed 3D designs to be effectively sketched into creation directly from the table-top."
"3Doodler is the 21st century's newest tool for your toolbox"
"3Doodler 2.0 is a dramatic 75% slimmer, lighter and stronger than its predecessor"
"(A) product that appeals to a mass market and has sold plenty."
"3D printing pen reaches Kickstarter funding goal in hours"
"The 3Doodler [is] downright affordable—and better yet, it works."
"Think of it as rendering shapes in the air with sparklers on Bonfire Night come to life. Brilliant."
"The newest incarnation of the world's first 3D drawing pen."
"Imagine if you could make three-dimensional drawings by moving a pen through the air."
"We continue in our pursuit to create the world's first and best 3D printing pen."
"According to Rachel Goldsmith, [...] its smaller size will expand the possibilities of what you can do."
"There are companies with real products solving problems worth tackling."
I myself, was even a skeptic when I initially purchased my 3Doodler, but slowly and surely I found that the ‘glorified hot glue gun’, as I called it, actually was an incredible tool for artists, makers, and even designers.
The new and improved 3Doodler is a huge upgrade from its predecessor. It is more compact, about the size of a large marker pen, while the original handheld printer was the size of a nice healthy chicken roll.
While I'm not an artist (I can barely doodle a picture), I expect my creative friends will have a blast drawing with this. It's now possible to make wallets or outfits with a more flexible plastic as well.
So we've all heard of 3D printing, but how about 3D Doodling? A company called 3Doodler has been showing off a dress that they basically drew in thin air, using a 3D pen on display here in Las Vegas.
Now drawing in the air just got even better. As we continue in our pursuit to create the world's first and best 3D printing pen, we're excited to see how our community pushes the boundaries of 3D art and creation.
Manual temperature controls even allow you to make minute adjustments as you see fit, giving you greater control whether you decide to work from a template or free sketch like a modern-day Michelangelo.
Remember the 3Doodler? Odds are plenty of you do, seeing as how the company managed to nab a staggering $2.3 million for its $30,000 Kickstarter campaign... It's a bit like a hot glue gun for plastic -- simple and ingenuous.
That's when I get it. Everything else on this stand was hand-drawn too. The dress. The boat. The diving dolphin. Everything. With melted plastic. My jaw drops at the skill and invention on display.
3Doodler works much like a handheld 3D printer. The pen pushes PLA (or ABS) plastic through a super-heated nozzle at pen's end, which then instantly cools. The shapes you draw in space with 3Doodler then become real things.
3Doodler 2.0 is a slimmer, lighter version than its predecessor coming in at less than quarter the size at just 50g in weight.
3Doodler 2.0 is a complete rework of the original, swapping the plastic casing for a trimmer aluminum form-factor, dropping its weight to 50g, and running longer than before with the promise of more precise plastic ink extrus
3Doodler is the 21st century's newest tool for your toolbox and the latest smash hit on Kickstarter, set to break the US $2 million barrier on the crowdfunding site with 25 days still on the clock. That's faster than the Pebble smartwatch managed.
Debuted at CES, the pen allows users to draw plastic structures in the air using ABS or PLA plastic filament. It works by heating the plastic then rapidly cooling it, and all it needs is some charge to get up and running.
What do you do when you’ve created a multi-award winning product that appeals to a mass market and has sold plenty? Rest on your laurels? Not on your nelly! 3Doodler has made a host of improvements.
I saw a prototype of this thing last week and it’s very compelling. It’s a fun toy and actually quite useful for very simple prototyping of plastic objects. In a few minutes we were able to build a little wireframe cube and draw a TC logo.
One 3D printer, however, aims to differentiate itself with its unusual look. It's called the 3Doodler, and instead of the typical box-like structure, it's a hand-held pen that allows you to “draw” your 3D-printed object.
Now the 3Doodler 2.0 has arrived, debuted at [...] (CES) in Las Vegas. The new model of 3Doodler works in the same way to the original but is 75% smaller than the first generation model and half the weight.
Superhero and star of Guardians of the Galaxy Groot and the Leaning Tower of Piza were created using 3Doodler 2.0, the newest incarnation of the world's first 3D drawing pen.
Imagine if you could make three-dimensional drawings by moving a pen through the air. That's the gist of the 3Doodler, a sort of pen-meets-3D-printer device that extrudes fast-drying plastic to create 3D constructs.
The idea is to prioritise the community that supported the original campaign by giving them early access to buy the product through Kickstarter at a reduced price.
Last week, while we were running around like beheaded chickens at CES, 3Doodler announced an update to its 3D-printing pen. Its Kickstarter campaign is already astonishingly overfunded.
A bunch of crowdfunded 3D printers (including the popular 3Doodler) were at CES 2015 en force as part of the new 3D printing pavilion at the show.
