3Doodler: An Evolution Of 3D Pen

Developed by Peter Dilworth, Maxwell Bogue and Daniel Cowen of Wobble Works, Inc., 3Doodler is the first 3D printing pen in the world. It works by the technology of heating a plastic-like material and melting it like ink.

Thereafter, that ink quickly hardens when it gets out from the 3D pen. It allows users to create 3D objects by hand.

Disadvantage

As the pen is hand-controlled, it’s impossible to replicate some objects. The design you will try to copy will be hugely inaccurate. One object can be made once only.

Consequently, it’s indeed an expensive thing for being creative. However, technology is also remarkably unique. Though it is still not a common thing to everyone, after a few years this technology will also come with a cost-effective range of products.
