3Doodler – Drawing in 3D
They say that art is good for the soul, and if that’s supposed to mean it’s good therapy, then I guess I’m on board. I don’t know how many times I’ve involved myself in painting, drawing, heck, even coloring, in order to calm myself, or simply as a distraction from some “less than stellar” life events. If you’d like to get your creative juices flowing, you might love this next gadget.
Check out the 3Doodler, a nifty, new artistic tool that let’s your imagination be your limit. The 3Doodler lets you create your designs in the air, where they magically transform into handheld art that you can put anywhere. By using melting ABS or PLA plastic the 3Doodler draws in the air, or on surfaces. It’s compact and easy to use. You simply plug it in, and as the plastic flows, you can start drawing almost anything.
The process works like this; as the 3Doodler draws, it extrudes this heated ABS or PLA plastic, which cools and quickly solidifies into a strong and relatively stable object. So if you’ve ever dreamed of having your drawings lift off the page and take their place on your bookshelf, this is the tool for you. As with anything else worth doing, there seems to be a bit of a learning curve, but with practice, you should be able to make some amazing creations. Check out the videos HERE.
We have reported on the 3Doodler before, when it was an especially noteworthy Kickstarter project, but now, refinements have been made, and with the addition of PLA, even more artistic applications can be discovered. The awesome 3Doodler pen is a reality, and if you’d like to have one, they are available for pre-order from 3Doodler.com for only 99 bucks.
