3Doodler is the world's first 3D printing pen. If you can scribble, trace or wave a finger in the air you can use a 3Doodler. As you draw, plastic comes out of the pen, is cooled by an integrated fan, and solidifies right in front of you. You can draw on any surface and lift it up into the air to create your own 3D objects.

3Doodler is the brainchild of Peter Dilworth and Max Bogue, co-founders of WobbleWorks LLC. The 3Doodler, the world’s first 3D printing pen.

They wanted to design a 3D printing device that could be used within minutes, without needing any technical knowledge, software or computers. They also wanted it to be affordable as well as fun, so that anyone could 3Doodle!

3Doodler is nearing production now. It's a pen that can draw in the air! 3Doodler is the 3D printing pen you can hold in your hand. Lift your imagination off the page!

“We wanted to design a 3D printing device that could be used within minutes, without needing any technical knowledge, software or computers. We also wanted it to be affordable as well as fun, so that anyone could 3Doodle!” said Peter Dilworth, Co-Founder & CEO of WobbleWorks.

The 3Doodler has been in development for a year, with early prototypes in production for the first time this month. When WobbleWorks reaches its modest funding goal of $30,000, the team will start an initial commercial run, with the first 3Doodlers delivered to backers before Fall 2013.

    Very cool- Clearly this tool is the best panoptic invention of the creative nature of mankind since the mother-of-all design instruments the #2 lead pencil. I'm looking forward to trying this out. It's ingeniuos!
