3Doodler in selected retail outlets around the UAE today
DUBAI– The 3Doodler, the world’s first 3D drawing pen, will be available from 01 May 2014 in Virgin Megastore Mall of the Emirates, Jumbo Electronics stores in Mall of the Emirates, Al Ain Mall, Sharjah City Center and Dalma Mall Abu Dhabi with demonstrations taking place from Thursday 6-8pm, Friday 1-9pm, and Saturday 1-9pm.
Appealing to hobbyists, artists, designers, architects and educational establishments, 3Doodler allows the creation of amazing 3D objects without the restrictions of complicated software or advanced artistic abilities or design training. Limited only by the user’s imagination, the 3Doodler requires no technical knowledge or specific skills.
Already launched in the USA and Europe, and soon in Singapore & Japan, the UAE is the 5th country globally to introduce the pen to market.
The 3Doodler was developed by Peter Dilworth and Maxwell Bogue of WobbleWorks Inc. Launched in February 2013 on the crowd funding platform Kickstarter, 3Doodler became the 3rd highest funded technology project of all time.
Using patent pending technology it utilizes sticks made of organic PLA or standard ABS plastic– all BPA free. The plastic feedstock is melted inside the 3Doodler and solidifies instantly when extruded from the tip, allowing users to create unique 3D objects by hand. The plastic feedstock has a 10:1 ratio, meaning for every inch placed inside the pen you get 10 inches of 3Doodles out of the pen. The 3Doodler has a metal tip that reaches high temperatures and which should not be touched, although the plastic extruded from 3Doodler is safe to touch almost immediately after leaving the pen.
Compact and easy to use, the 3Doodler can be plugged into a power socket and used immediately. This makes it ideal for freestyle 3D sketching, tracing shapes from templates to make larger architectural structures, the development of spatial skills for educational purposes, or simply a fun tool for arts and crafts enthusiasts wishing to bring 3D printing into the home.
