Product details

3Doodler 3D Printing Pen

• The world's first 3D printing pen – a Maplin UK exclusive
• Hand-held 3D printer will unleash your creativity
• Use the 3Doodler free-hand or with a stencil
• Works with ABS or PLA printing plastics
• Mains powered
• Each 3Doodler comes with mixed ABS packs "Meta" (25 strands) & "Essentials" (25 strands)

The 3Doodler – how does it work?
The 3Doodler extrudes a thin, flexible filament of heated plastic that quickly hardens, allowing you to draw three dimensional shapes in real time – just as if you were drawing with a pen. There are an infinite number of 3D objects you can create with a little practice – start now and you’ll soon be creating your own 3D masterpieces. Practice by tracing simple 2D shapes and within hours you will be able to create stunning 3D sculptures, and so much more.

How do I use my 3Doodler?
To start with, make 3Doodles as flat forms on paper – you’ll be able to peel them away once the plastic hardens. Next learn to join these 2D shapes together to make three dimensional objects. Then, with a little more practice, you’ll be able to go freestyle, drawing in 3D to create your own fully rounded objects – the creative opportunities are endless!

Many 3Doodlers create and share stencils online – enabling you to tackle intricate structures such as the Eifel Tower. Or, why not join the community and share your ideas?

With the 3Doodler, you can create unique and personal gifts, ornaments for your home, or experiment with designing something a bit off the wall – we made a desktop catapult for all-out office warfare!

3Doodler will unleash your inner artist – the only limits are your imagination. Not suitable for the under-12s.

  • Amazing

    This pen is amazing. There is so much that you can do with it, from creating flat shapes and using the pen to 'glue' them into a 3D structure, to creating 3D structures as you draw. My daughter is currently using it for her Art GCSE final piece to create a 3D head, using a polystyrene mannequin head for her template. The pictures she has been texting are awesome. We think this is definitely worth the investment. My only criticism is that the 3Doodler has proved so popular, getting additional packs of the ABS / PLA strips is proving difficult because they are selling out too fast - Maplins HO are unable to get further stocks in quick enough - so we are having to do a 40 mile round trip this evening to get further packs so our daughter can complete her Art GCSE which finishes tomorrow. Other than that we cannot fault the product. A brilliant invention.

    Excellent fun, different and the start of education for 3D printing. Do it before everyone gets one and you will have to wait ages to have fun.

  • Fantastic fun for all

    I bought one of these from the original crowd funding offer (kickstarter I believe) It's great fun, and contrary to the instructions, my 9 year old, albeit sensible, son handles it easily. It takes a little time to get used to so buy extra plastics or you'll be running out before you even get started. I have successfully used my pen with spooled plastics, cut to length and straighted out a little. It's much cheaper than buying the small packs but does invalidate your warranty (I believe) Don't think about it! Just buy it now... you'll love it!
