3Doodler, the 3D Printing Pen!

February 27th - via:
By now, many of us all know what 3d printing is. It is a form of rapid prototyping using additive manufacturing (layer by layer). In order to use a 3d printer, you need to know how to use a 3d modeling program such as Autodesk Inventor, which is a complex program not usually used by the everyday people. There are websites such as Thingiverse that offer models to be submitted and used by users, but what if you just want to unleash your creativity and go freehand? Until now, that hasn’t been a possibility, but the 3Doodler has arrived at Kickstarter! (Read More)

3Doodler crushes Kickstarter goal in hours

February 20th - via:
Currently the cheapest pledge that will get you a pen via Kickstarter is for $75 or more. That pledge will get you the pen and two bags of mixed color plastic along with a Hall of Fame mention.
