Draw 3D sculptures with world's first 3D printing pen

Draw 3D sculptures with world's first 3D printing pen

The 3D printer has a very real role in smarter and more sustainable design and manufacturing. A designer can create a prototype on the spot and correct their design with minimal waste. Consumers can order a product and have it printed locally, minimizing the carbon footprint of manufacturing, transporting and shipping mass-produced goods. The 3Doodler, though, seems more like a glorified glue-gun, a novel toy for an artist, while piggybacking on the popularity of 3D printing. And yet, look at the interest it is generating. It has raised over $600,000 $604,000 $614,000 and rising (you can literally sit there and watch the funding amount tick up with amazing speed as the minutes go by... it raised half a million in just a day...) with a month left in its fundraising campaign.
