Joynt: 3Doodler pen lets you draw 3D objects

Jordan Joynt

A Kickstarter page has been created for the 3Doodler, the world’s first 3D printing pen, allowing for the creation of 3D objects.

The pen uses hot plastic extruded at around 270C and then cooled by an integrated fan, solidifying on impact. The 3Doodler works as a hot glue gun, you can draw on any surface and lift designs into 3D objects.

The pen uses ABS plastic, the same material used in several 3D printers. Designs can start off as flat forms and peeled off a piece of paper, as freestyle 3D objects, or in separate parts, ready to be joined together.

The company also provides stencils, printable designs for more intricate objects. The 3Doodler community will eventually be built up to include hundreds of stencil kits that can be shared online.

3Doodler lists some of the items that can be created including basic 3D models, decorative art and personalization for everyday items like iPhones and laptops.

The 3Doodler can also be used for repairs, mostly for plastic welding purposes or broken iPhone cases.

3Doodler was created by Peter Dilworth and Max Bogue, co-founders of WobbleWorks LLC. WobbleWorks is a toy and robotics company, creating items such as life-size robotic dinosaurs for museums and theme parks.
