The future is right within our reach, and it’s as easy to reach as picking up a pen and drawing.

We’ve probably all heard by now about the fascinating “Makerbot Replicator 2”, a 3D printer that once it receives an image file from a computer, it melts down a whole lot of plastic, and starts painting the image it received in 3D. Well, 3Doodler is just a little bit similar to that. It also uses plastic as a raw material for the designs, but it is a lot less precise, as you can see from the doodles in the pictures.
How to Use 3Doodler?
The 3Doodler lays hot plastic strips onto a surface, and from there on, you can do whatever your imagination tells you. The official instructions from the founders of WobbleWorks say that:
“If you can scribble, trace or wave a finger in the air you can use a 3Doodler.”
You can also use it to repair any plastic materials, and if you go to any online big retailer, you can get kilos of 3 millimeter plastic strips and doodle for the rest of your life, cause it uses very little plastic.
