The Weekly Envy highlights one piece of cool tech that we’ve come across lately and really wish we could buy!
The 3Doodler (2.0) is the world’s first 3D printing pen. Starting out as a Kickstarter campaign, the pen got plenty of support seeing as it was a cheap way to 3D print that also got rid of the need for CAD skills.
The original 3Doodler was a huge hit, heating and then rapidly cooling ABS, PLA, and Flexy plastic. Version 2.0 is much more sleak and has a couple more convenient functions like a special click for a continuous flow of plastic.
When you think about it, the 3Doodler is really just a hot glue gun but with awesomely colored glue that doesn’t leave strings everywhere. See it in action in the 2.0 launch video below:
There are lots of cool nozzles and different colors of plastic that you can buy for the 3Doodler. You can even get a sewing machine-esque pedal for your pen so that your fingers don’t get worn out!
The 3Doodler is awesome for educational projects and would just be plain fun to have around the office.
$99.99 will get you 3Doodler 2.0 and plastic sets of 25 run around $9.99.
