The future of sketching is coming. WobbleWorks designed a groundbreaking hand held 3D printing device. A pen that can draw in the air! The 3Doodler literally puts the power of 3D printing in the hands of the creator with no need of any technical knowledge, software or computers.
The tool consists of an oversized pen device with an internal extruder similar to the ones used in low-end 3D printers. When pressing the fingertip button, ABS-plastic filament emerges to be dynamically controlled into whatever shape the drawing hand decides. As you draw, the heated plastic extrudes, quickly cools and solidifies into a strong stable structure.
The 3Doodler is way more primitive than the printers we are used to, and the outcome have a sketchy handcrafted and sculptural look, but it’s intuitive and quick to use, so whether you are an artist, designer or 3D printing fanatic, 3Doodling is one of the must trys of 2013.
