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
Other tools are being sold (separately) like accessories + books, plastic strands:
- 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? 😊
P.S. Photos aren’t mine.

I think I might want to share this post to my friends who are also an artist. The problem is the price though. But it’s really good if you can have a pen which can also be a challenge but brings out good result.

It’s a good thing you posted a video otherwise hindi ko talaga ma visualize. Cute siya. I suppose ito ang moments when I know I am not into creative arts pero at the same time, appreciated seeing work in progress and results, especially from familiar people like you. Keep it up!

Were you able to do a doodle upwards and not tracing your name? I’ve been very curious as to how it really works and what other things it can do. I’ve seen videos of this 3D Doodle pen and what it could do but not much from a local review. Looking forward to more of your artworks using this great tool.

was about to ask the same question myself.. because if this 3D doodler pen can doodle ‘upwards’, then I think we have found a more cheaper alternative to the 3d printers! 🙂 I’m looking forward to the crafts that you can create with this 🙂

YES! For a few seconds only since it was just an attempt to do it. Sadly, I was not able to capture it on video because it was more of a spur of the moment when it happened. Maybe next time, if I could set up my phone properly so I wouldn’t keep on holding it while I do it. 🙂 3D printers are way expensive. 🙁

Wow.. that’s look new to me, I know 3D painting is slowly gaining popularity, and a 3D pen looks so cool. Although I really suck at my penmanship, I really want to try this.. someday, when my penmanship is worth to 3Doodle .. Lol!

Oh , wow , amazing , a3D pen ?! 99,- dollar is not really a bargain , it is pretty expensive, but as I see it is so worth investing the money if you want to create some amazing designs. Great to see the progress you are making !

Wow! This is really cool! I think I saw a video before on FB about a pen like this one. I’m sure soon masasanay ka din gamitin yan! I would love to buy that one but I don’t think I can give justice to the pen! haha. Not a good artist/doodler here.

That’s cool! It would be fun to doodle on air even though I’m not good at doodling. However, I don’t think I would be purchasing one since I’m not an artsy type. I don’t think I would have the time to fully maximize using it. It was nice of you to think of making a bag hook. I can imagine the possibilities. Looking forward to your refined creations in the future.

I don’t know much about 3Doodler and I just heard it a couple of time max. Even though it sounds quiet cool and fun to try. $99 with everything that comes with is worth it I think. How long does the pen last? Also, is it instant to take it in your end or do you have to wait some time?

This one is cool especially to those people who are into arts. I can share this info with my sister inlaw she will definitely love this one.

wow this is so cute, you just took calligraphy to a new level… it could be literally as well haha… but I’m sure it takes a lot of time to master this kind of tool.. but how rewarding it would be when you see the final results.. i think I so a similar tool online but the guy created a scaled version of Eiffel tower… this is really amazing
Orana VelardeDecember 14, 2016 at 12:50 PM
wow what a weird pen! But it must run out of ink right? Is it work a hundred dollars you think? I don’t know it seems like a novelty thing. Ok who am I kidding I’m sure I would love some querky thing like this. jajaja.
