BERLIN, September 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Launching At IFA 2016 With Accompanying Specialty Plastics, Including Wood, Copper, Bronze, Nylon, and Polycarbonate
3Doodler, maker of the original 3D printing pen, today announces the industry's most advanced, professional-grade 3D printing pen, the 3Doodler PRO. The sleek tool is designed for creative professionals such as architects, engineers and artists, and is ideal for prototyping designs, concept development, and communicating their creative vision in unique 3D form.
Unlike other pens on the market, the new PRO plastics include wood, copper, bronze, nylon, and polycarbonate, complementing the 65+ compatible varieties of plastic from the 3Doodler Create range. The PRO is the only 3D printing pen that can use these new materials to their full potential.
Maxwell Bogue, Co-Founder & CEO said: "Beyond the numerous upgrades, what really makes the PRO so unique is how the device and materials come together to answer the needs of professionals. When we started the 3Doodler journey back in 2013, we had world-leading architects telling us "I want to do this". "This" was a quick wave of the pen in the air, with plastic solidifying in its wake. With new materials like polycarbonate that dream is a reality. The high-performance PRO can be used for the most advanced of purposes to bring concepts to life, and become an integral part of the creative process."
The PRO boasts new features including tactile adjustable dials for temperature and speed, an adjustable fan for user control over the cooling of the plastics, and an LCD display to show the pen's settings. Encased in a lightweight carbon fiber shell, the pen's radically re-engineered drive system is designed specifically for the range of new materials exclusive to the PRO. In combination with the high-speed fan, polycarbonate plastic can be used to create a solid structure in one swift gesture, making it ideal to quickly sketch out blueprints, either on a surface or in the air.
Daniel Cowen, Co-President, said: "The 3Doodler has outsold any other 3D printing device on the global market. We now have pens specifically designed for crafters, adults, children, and with this, the most advanced pen ever, professionals. Whether you're eight or 80 years old, hobbyist or professional, the 3Doodler range of products has never been more inclusive. After being first to market, we are now pushing the boundaries of 3D creation to ever more users and use-cases."
The pen is packaged in a premium storage case, together with accompanying accessories, ensuring the professional user has everything they need to create their masterpiece, including a portable battery pack, Nozzle Set, DoodlePad, and 100 strands of specialty plastic.
