If you didn’t hop on the initial bandwagon, then it may be of interest to you that a new and improved version of the original is on the horizon.
Being able to think up an idea and draw it into a 3D form seemed crazy years ago. Pens like the 3Doodler coming onto the market changed all that, and plenty of different versions have popped up since then. As always, some are more successful than others.
