Stop Everything and check out the World’s First 3D Drawing Pen

By

20th Feb, 2013

Hey crafty people, in case you haven’t already been trawling the tech blogs of the internet this morning, your crafty lives as you know them are about to change. There’s not much to say about the 3D pen, oh, except that it’s awesome. But okay, here are your basic facts.

  • It was launched yesterday on Kickstarter and has already smashed it’s funding target of $30,000 by nearly 20 times over. 
  • The pen uses plastic as its ink just like a 3D printer. As you draw, plastic comes out of the pen and is cooled by an integrated fan, and solidifies right in front of your eyes. 
  • It’s approximately 4×2 inches and has a metal tip that can get as hot as 270C. 
  • It requires no brain power, only doodle skills. 

Okay now watch the video:

If you want to be one of the first people to get your hands on a 3Doodler, you can be part of the funding process on Kickstarter and pledge $75 for a full 3D pen with two bags of plastic ink included (limited pledges left so hurry!)

Head over to the Kickstarter page to get involved!
