When doodling meets modern day innovation, it kind of blows your mind. Introducing a new 3D printing pen aimed specifically at creative professionals.
In 2013, 3Doodler created the world’s first 3D printing pen with the help of a campaign via Kickstarter. They upped their game in January 2015, with an improved version with 3Doodler 2.0. Subsequently, just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, 3Doodler Create and 3Doodler Start were released.
Now with the launch of 3Doodler Pro, it seems they have aimed way higher taking things to the next level. At this moment in time, it is the world’s most advanced 3D printing pen aimed at professional designers. Its makers hope the pen will be more cost and time effective than a traditional 3D printer.
The 3Doodler Pro has additional features than its predecessor. Its wide range of materials and applications have been intended specifically for product designers, architects, engineers and artists. The user can now design with a range of plastics, including those replicating wood, copper, bronze and nylon. Moreover it includes temperature control ranging from 100°C to 250°C with additional speed dials and a fan so users can control the rate of cooling plastic.
“Imagine being able to draw furniture prototypes in wood, hand-draw custom jewellery pieces in copper or bronze, add detail to material in nylon, or create instantaneous 3D models in polycarbonate,” says Faraz Warsi, creative director at 3Doodler.
The groundbreaking pen comes fully equipped with a storage case, portable battery pack and a custom nozzle set including 100 strands of plastic. The 3Doodler Pro is now on sale in the U.S retailing at $249 (£187) from the Museum of Modern Art in New York. By the end of the year, they should be available worldwide from the official site.
Some may think $249 is a chunk of money, which it may seem like it is. However the 3Doodler Pro is still cheaper compared to a 3D printer and only a fraction of the size!
