3Doodler launches new 3D printing pen
Precise Group introduced the 3Doodler Start 3D printing pen at GITEX Technology Week.
Precise Group introduced the 3Doodler Start 3D printing pen, a follow up to its 3Doodler Create, at GITEX Technology Week.
3Doodler Start is suitable for children over the age of eight years, making it suitable for primary schools. The biodegradable filament is made from maize, and the pen does not heat the filament, making it safe for children.
Commenting on the pen’s application in primary classrooms, Precise Group events manager Madre Wilson said: “You can use the 3D printing pen in geometry lessons to show children what a pyramid looks like and to measure things like that and structural engineering.
“It’s a really great tool to support STEAM education.”
The 3Doodler Start is the second product in the range. 3Doodler Create, which launched two years ago and has been used in secondary school and university projects, Wilson said.
She explained: “The 3Doodle Create is very popular in the market and has been used more in secondary and universities for specific projects.
“Now with the addition of the 3Doodler Start, we are adding it to primary education and expect a great following.”
The 3Doodler Start website also offers 200 free stencils and projects for students to use, as well as a DoodleBlock kit and YouTube videos and tutorials.
