3Doodler - The World's First 3D Printing Pen
« on: October 03, 2014, 07:10:44 AM »
3Doodler The World's First 3D Printing Pen.  Never heard of this until Barry Snell (aka John Howling Mouse) sent me an eMail with a flyer from Michael's advertising this new tool. 

Reminds me a bit of a glue gun but with so much more potential. 

Here is a video from YouTube describing the tool and how to use it:

Sounds like a very interesting idea

To me it's aboot as accurate as using cake icing.

Colour me skeptical as to any serious applications for modelling...but I've been known to be wrong before.

Useful for artists, also skeptical 'aboot',  ;D, it's usefullness in the word of 'scale' modelling.
Anyhoo, it aint' a '3D Printing' pen, it's a free-form plastic extrusion device, which has loads
of possibilities when freed from the limitations of terminology.  ;D

Wonder how useful it would be for gap filling or creating raised detail to shape after, I have one I bought for the kids that no one has used yet so should give it a try.

I have one that came with my UP3D 2 years ago as a promotional item. Two modelling applications I have for it are making "gizmology" wiring looms from point A (usually the back of an instrument panel) to point B (a bulkhead near the instrument panel ! ) and more often the manufacture of small trees for diorama/wargaming purposes.  In fact the cherry blossom and garden shrubs on my Zen Gunboat were done using a 3D pen.

With reference to gap filling and raised detail - I have tried this and it works well for freehand addition ( I made some shield crests for some wargaming figures ) but ofr gap filling it gets a little.... melty...

Cool, but the issue, as always, is you are talented and skilled while I, sadly, am not.  ;)
