What do your scribbles say about you? Are you the harmonious sort who likes to draw soft shapes and happy sketches, or are you more down to earth and analytical with sharp lines, boxes, and architectures? We’ve always heard that like your handwriting, your casual drawings offer up clues about your personality. So what would all those psychoanalysts say when they find out that you have a penchant for drawing in the air? The team from Scribble 3D Pen would say quite simply that you are an artist, designer, or 3D printing enthusiast who happens to be full of new ideas with a love for trying out new technology.
Just launched on Kickstarter, the Scribble 3D Pen is unique in its ability to offer high resolution in a small and portable package, as well as great affordability. In hopes of raising $5,000 by April 16th, the team is offering those who back the campaign a chance to order their own 3D printing pens for just $49 with the very early bird special. With that special price, backers receive:
- One Scribble 3D printing pen
- Two packs of 25 strands of PLA plastic
- Three Scribble PDF Projects
- A Hall of Fame mention
The regular early bird price is $75 and you receive more material in that package; as prices ascend, the volume of pens and materials grows. There is a limit of one per backer. And while the Scribble 3D pen is a cool idea for yourself or to give as a gift, it’s also a fantastic item to order at a discounted volume for any educational setting. Offering similar function to a 3D printer, the Scribble is a smart tool that’s great for all ages.
“This extraordinary easy tool enables you to create anything through the power of your own imagination,” say the creators on Kickstarter.
According to the team, the Scribble features a unique LED screen and a much more compact design in comparison to other 3D printing pens. It fits comfortably in the hand, and allows you to form nearly any imaginable shape. If you are working on a design prototype, this pen may be just the inspiration and change you need, saying goodbye to traditional pen and paper for a while—and taking your art into the air. You should find that you are drawing and sketching bigger, better, and much smarter, with the ability to create amazingly accurate pieces, from figures to structures, as well as loops and curved shapes.
“You can make prototypes with the Scribble 3D printing pen rather than using computer-aided design programs which, can be complicated, expensive and hard to alter,” say the creators.
Scribble 3D is made up of three founders, all bringing enormous talent and energy to the team. Emily Aguilar is the media supervisor. A graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, the rest of her team says she is famous for bringing new ideas and propositions to the business—all the time. Stephanie Daniels is a designer TV host with a passion for technology and product design, and she works with the group in producing output for the Scribble 3D pen. Austin Kelly is the technical director, and is passionate about industrial design and the technical aspects of their hardware.
“We all work together as a team and as friends to offer this amazing community creative and innovative new products,” Austin told 3DPrint.com.
The team sees Scribble 3D as a truly new way for all creative types to enjoy a different and valuable design experience, having fun—while making nearly anything in just seconds. The Scribble 3D pens from Kickstarter are set to ship in May, with delivery available worldwide. Are you planning to back this campaign? Discuss in the Scribble 3D Printing Pen forum over at 3DPB.com.
