Imagine a pen with which you can draw things in 3G form. Well, WobbleWorks limited is going to help you do just with the 3D Doodler, a 3D printing pen.
The project has already managed to reach its funding goal of $300,000 on Kickstarter.
So how does it work? The pen has a button on top and when you press this, a thin string of plastic comes out and almost instantly hardens. 3D doodles can then be created via the pen as flat forms on paper and then peeled off in one go as a complete 3D object, or you can peel them off in separate parts, ready to be joined together using the Doodler.
The pen uses ABS plastic which is commonly used in 3D printing. The device draws in the air or on surfaces.
The founders of the project are Peter Dilworth and Max Bogue, who are both experienced toy designers, according to this TechCrunch report.
The 3Doodler will let you create basic 3D shapes and 3D models, jewellery, pendants and hanging ornaments
and decorative art and fridge magnets, among other things.
