Here are some snippets of my scribbles with the 3Doodler pen. It is really a powerful tool that maybe used to build and create. Read more here.
This is originally a present for my Sam but it ended up in my possession. I am the one in-charge of keeping it. Next, I use it for practice. The pen was bought from an online shop, Pen Master PH. It is also being sold on their website.
What we have is the 3.0 which is the updated version of the 2.0 pen.
Customers can buy this for $99 (roughly Php 5000) from their website. The set includes the:
- doodler pen
- ABS and PLA filaments
- extra nozzle
- cleaning tools
- screw driver
- extra parts
- Doodle pad
- Doodle stand
- Nozzle set
- Jet Pack
- Project book
Using the Pen
At first, we found it hard to use it since you have to wait for quite some time since the filament needs to be heated before it could be used. It’s been more than a year since we had it but it still feels like it’s a new thing for us. The guide was available in various languages to be understood easily.
So, here is how I used it to be able to write letters:
- I wrote what I wanted to 3Doodle on a sheet of vellum board. I used a Platinum brush pen for scribbling.
- When I finalized what I really want, I started doodling with repeated strokes. (You could see this on the video)
- After letting it cool off and dry, it will detach if you peel it off carefully.
I have scribbled:
- MQ (my initials)
Not only that I scribbled those but I also tried doing a bag hook so I could be able to hang some of my wires or cords for my phones. The site also has stencils and projects wherein you could use and print for your own projects. Of course, having your own designs is highly suggested!
Here are my thoughts and realizations:
- It is really a challenge to use at first since it is the first I used it to write letters.
- Everything has a challenge to be conquered and each challenge teaches us to be tougher, braver and stronger.
- With practice, everything will be easier.
Therefore, we highly suggest that designers/artists/enthusiasts should try this out. It’s another alternative for 3D printing as well since you could just doodle it.
What do you think about doodling on air? 😊
