Re-engineered and optimized, the 3Doodler 2.0 from 3Doodler is the second-generation 3D Printing Pen that is slimmer, lighter, quieter, and easier to use. Improvements on the original 3Doodler Pen include a redesigned nozzle for greater accuracy, temperature control for manual adjustment and optimization, double-click speed controllers for continuous flow, and an improved drive system for smoother filament extrusion.
The 3Doodler 2.0 extrudes heated plastic, which quickly cools and solidifies into a stable structure. Suitable for both right- and left-handed use, the pen can be used to draw flat forms on paper that can be peeled off, or it can draw 3D objects in mid-air. Because 3Doodler filament adheres to other plastics, you can also use it to decorate and personalize items, weld together traditionally-printed 3D objects, or repair small plastic items.
The pen allows you to adjust the settings for either ABS or PLA filaments, both of which are supported by the 3Doodler 2.0, but require different temperatures to extrude. Two buttons also allow you to control the speed at which the plastic is extruded, which will affect the thickness and properties of the resulting doodle.
For more advanced applications, there is a three-pin control port that allows you to control the speed buttons without manually touching the 3Doodler 2.0. Users can mount their 3Doodler 2.0 to a CNC arm or something similar using tape, for example, and use the control port to control the extrusion.
The 3Doodler 2.0 comes with a detachable US power cord and can also be powered with the separately sold JetPack portable battery. Included with the 3Doodler 2.0 are two mixed packs of filament - the "Highlighter" color scheme in ABS, and "The Essentials" color scheme in PLA - for a total of 50 strands of filament, so you can start doodling right out of the box.
The 3Doodler 2.0 is not recommended for young children, as the extruder can get significantly hot. The extruded plastic, however, is warm but touchable when it emerges from the tip of the 3Doodler.
