The 3D printers continue to grow and expand its scope in various disciplines, however one of the main obstacles is the price, which makes its scope is still limited for some people especially freelancers.
Therefore, a proposal like 3Doodler, consisting of a pen that prints 3D freehand is very interesting for its price and scope, a proposal that is being upgraded to offer a more professional option through the incorporation of new drawing materials in the air. We know the details of the new 3Doodler Pro.
The company 3Doodler was born in 2013 when they launched a Kickstarter campaign where they sought funding to create a pen able to create 3D drawings, as if it were a 3D printer by hand. The campaign was a success but the product was aimed at a more casual segment simple entertainment.
Now the company is announcing its second product in its history, the 3Doodler Pro, which is based on the same idea of creating drawings and small sculptures hand but now under a professional concept thought, addressing engineers, designers and architects.

Among the features of this new 3Doodler Pro we have a carbon fiber body and the ability to use nylon, wood, polycarbonate and small filaments in copper and bronze to toughen our creations. Each material offers different colors and properties, since one is more flexible, another cools and solidifies faster, another aspect leaves a cloth, and so depending on the combinations and temperature we use.
The pen has its own fan which serves to regulate the drying of the material, also can choose the temperature to play with the material properties and give different aspects, plus an LCD screen where you can always see the settings that have activated.
Kit 3Doodler Pro includes 6 tips of different thickness, the price is $249, for the moment is only available in the United States through the official store of MoMA, but in the coming days will reach more online stores like Amazon, which will start with international distribution.
Although shown as an attractive and viable option for professionals, nothing is mentioned about the parts of material and its price, so we must consider whether this is a good long term investment.
