This was one of the most-funded projects in Kickstarter history and 3D printing is going to change the world of crafting & manufacturing as we know it. I think it’s very important to stay on top of technology even though it might not be easy to learn new things. My goal is to create some very accessible tutorials for the 3Doodler in order to encourage everyone (especially girls who may not typically be interested in gadgets) to learn about 3D printing.

The 3Doodler 2.0 shown in this video is currently available for pre-order and will ship on May 20th 2015. Be sure to get some plastic filaments as well, I’d recommend ABS plastic for beginners. They also work with schools so you can ask your teacher to get in touch about ordering 3Doodler for art, science or technology class!
A review of my first time using 3Doodler 2.0:
The 3Doodler 2.0 has a great design and is much easier to hold and use than the first version. You just need to plug it in and it heats up in 1 minute (that’s less time than my GHD hair straightener :P)! Though once the plastic started coming out, it was trickier than I imagined…picture a combination between a hot glue gun and royal icing a cookie. My first 3Doodles were all weird squiggles and blobs, so don’t get discouraged if your attempts don’t look like the pictures on their website. I think it’s most comparable to learning how to draw an image using a permanent marker in one attempt. You would not expect to be able to do that on your first try, but it’s definitely a skill you can pick up with a few hours of practise.
To get over the learning curve, simply experiment with the speed settings, doodling surface and changing colours. One challenge I had was getting the ABS to stick to the card surface, and I found that using sellotape (some users also prefer duct tape) helped a bit. The plastic melts the surface of the tape very slightly which helps hold it down.
The 3Doodler 2.0 comes with a nozzle remover, cleaning tool and some other useful parts. However I found small pliers incredibly useful for clearing or removing the nozzle. If you make charms or jewellery then you should already have those at home. The melted plastic did give off a slight smell but it didn’t both me that much (it was like getting used to the smell of polish when painting your nails). The smell goes away if you open a window or balcony door nearby.
