It may not look like it, but those tiny comics on the side of your tax returns could one day be the next Calvin and Hobbes hit. And while you really shouldn’t be drawing on your tax returns, it just goes to show how something so small can spark a really big idea.
The 3Doodler Create+ takes your misplaced creativity and allows you to bring your doodles into the third dimension. Using a special nozzle, it extrudes hot PLA, ABS, and FLEXY plastics which harden rapidly as you draw your desired 3D object.
Two buttons near the nozzle allow you to adapt the 3Doodler for slow or fast printing. Slow printing is for more intricate prints – such as the different frames of a miniature Eiffel Tower – while fast printing is for filling-in bigger areas – such as the cheese on top of a slice of plastic pizza. The 3Doodler runs on a dual drive system to prevent jamming, so you can draw to your heart’s content without worrying about hot plastic covering your drawing hand.
Even without any 3D printing experience, the 3Doodler is user-friendly to those old enough to use it. There’s even an active community which will provide a ton of stencils in case you aren’t the creative type.
