Reverse Space – Build, Create, Collaborate.
“Weekly Meeting and the new 3Doodler 3D pen”
This week ReverseSpace will be opening the box for the new 3Doodler 3D pen. This croudfunded Kickstarter project rasied more than 2 Million in pledges to bring this new concept to the Makerspace community. People are also trying to use this 3D pen to weld together two different prints without leaving a seam.
Below is a description of the pen from their croudfunding campaign:
3Doodler is the world’s first and only 3D Printing Pen. Using ABS plastic (the material used by many 3D printers), 3Doodler draws in the air or on surfaces. It’s compact and easy to use, and requires no software or computers. You just plug it into a power socket and can start drawing anything within minutes.
As 3Doodler draws, it extrudes heated plastic, which quickly cools and solidifies into a strong stable structure. This allows you to build an infinite variety of shapes and items with ease! Most people will instantly be able to trace objects on paper, and after only a few hours of practice you will be able to make far more intricate objects.
3Doodler is a brand new way of creating objects and artistic works. Whether you are an artist, hobbyist or 3D printing fanatic, we can’t wait to see what you 3Doodle!
