3D printers are a cool concept, but who really knows how to use those things? If your income is as low as mine, they’re really expensive, and you have to use engineering software, in most cases, in order to design the 3D object that you’re going to print out.
The bottom line for 3D printers? Sounds like a lot of HOOPLAH! Sounds like a lot of HOOPLAH! I SAID, IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF – HOOPLAH! *Hit with a flying brick*
3D Printing Pen
The 3Doodler is for those of us who enjoy the simpler things in life: basically, this 3D printing pen lets you make 3D drawings just as easily as you make 2D drawings. Want to have some plastic stick figures to play with? Just draw them on a piece of paper, pull off the dried plastic, and voila! The 3Doodler dries plastic so quickly that you can just move your pen vertically in order to create lines that jump into the super trippy zone of being three dimensional.
Recommendation: watch the video, because it’s awesome, and because my explanation skills are, on a scale of one to ten, terrible.
The good news is that the 3Doodler is already almost 8,000% funded, so this thing is going into the markets whether or not you support it, which is great, because I have no faith in you.
The bad news is that you probably aren’t one of the 25,000 backers that the 3Doodler pen has, which means you won’t be getting one anytime soon. Pledging $50 would have gotten you one of these 3D printing pens, but now you will have to pay at least $75 because people already snatched up those deals like some delicious texas hotcakes.
The 3Doodler is awesome, and there’s no way that I’m not going to support these guys in their efforts to be amazing – I suppose I can just write some more checks and watch them bounce like basketballs…
