The World’s First 3D Printing Pen Gets Even More Education Friendly
Earlier this year our 10 year old edtech reporter Tatum F enjoyed a visit with the folks from 3Doodler at SXSWedu. 3Doodler is the world’s first, only and best 3D printing pen that puts the creativity and productivity of a 3d printer, literally in the palm of your hand.
It was first introduced to the world via an over-subscribed Kickstarter campaign in 2013. It was then that the founders, Maxwell Bogue, Peter Dilworth and Daniel Cowen realized they were onto something far more than a niche item for creatives. Because it’s a pen, versus a traditional 3D printer, users, artists, creatives, students and teachers can make far more intricate designs. On the flipside they can make far more artistic and abstract designs as well. And everything in between.
The company went from the original 3Doodler pen to now offering three different models: 3Doodler Start, 3Doodler Create and 3Doodler Pro all have their unique use cases, but all are just about equally as easy to use. The pen format doesn’t just make it easier to use and create with, it makes it a lot more affordable for today’s classrooms. In many instances students can go 1:1 with a 3Doodler rather than waiting hours on end to get their turn using the classroom’s 3D printer.
The folks at 3Doodler knew they were onto something in the education market. 3Doodler caught on like wildfire in grades K-12. That’s why, just in time for ISTE 2018, 3Doodler has announced a new product line specifically for classroom use.
The new lineup includes:
- The new 3Doodler Learning Pack, featuring 12 3Doodler (Create+ or Start) pens, 1,200 strands of plastic, a host of other tech accessories, lesson plans and classroom materials. 6-pen versions of both kits are also available.
- The new sampler-sized 3Doodler EDU Teacher Experience Kit offer teachers a taste of the EDU Learning Packs at a fraction of the cost. Each Teacher Experience Kit features one 3Doodler pen (Create+ or Start), a sampler of plastic, and abbreviated lesson plans and classroom materials for a trial run into the world of handheld 3D creation.
The new 3Doodler EDU learning packs can be found on their newly revamped education page at 3doodler.com/edu
You can also see all of their eduction products at ISTE 2018 in Chicago, June 24-28th, booth #1972
