3D-printing pen turns doodles into sculptures

9 posts in this topic

Free yourself from the tyranny of paper and boring 2D. With a $75 pen you can draw in thin air.

The 3Doodle pen, developed by US start-up WobbleWorks, works much like a handheld 3D printer. It contains a mains-powered heater that melts the plastic beads used in such printers.

You can draw normally using the colourful plastic as your ink – but with a fantastic twist. Lift the nib in the air and a length of plastic exudes from the nib and solidifies, allowing you to create 3D objects by building up multiple wispy strands of plastic.

That looks like fun. I think I'll wait and see where the technology is in a couple of years.

That will create some brand-new hobbies. Imagine collecting 3-D signatures of celebrities.

Its just a hot-glue gun with plastic sticks inside(I think) instead of glue.

What I am thinking right now is that why didn't anyone come up with this for the consumer market earlier?

It sounds like a good consumer product.

They just need to find some way to make it edible with different flavors :P
