First dual-nozzle 3D-printing pen lets you draw in three dimensions faster

Why settle for drawing in just two dimensions when you could be sketching full 3D models of anything you can dream up? If you can’t think of a good answer to that question, you might be interested to hear about a new Kickstarter campaign for the so-called Scribbler Duo 3D-printing pen.

The 3D pen in general can be a very unique art and craft tool, which can be very beneficial for young people,” creator Alexander Vasilev told Digital Trends. “It helps them to think in 3D, learn structure, and help in 3D modeling. We have many schools that are getting these pens for the entire class. Our newest model Scribbler Duo has less limits compared to other models of 3D pens; you can draw with right or left nozzle separately, or with both at the same time. Our pen uses standard 1.75 mm plastic filament, which is much cheaper than the plastic that our competitors use.”

As its name implies, the big selling point of the Scribbler Duo is that it claims to be the world’s first dual-nozzle 3D-printing pen — thereby offering a plethora of new possibilities when it comes to your hand-drawn 3D printing. In terms of materials, the pen can support a wide variety of filaments, including ABS, PLA, glow-in-the-dark materials, metals, silk, and more.

The dual nozzle makes drawing twice as fast, while an innovative new method for quickly changing the nozzle head makes that task easier than ever. No, it’s not a replacement for your regular 3D printer, but as an extra tool, it’s a pretty nifty thing to get your hands on.

You can currently pre-order the Scribbler Duo 3D-printing pen on Kickstarter, with prices starting at $60. You can also get more expensive options that come bundled with up to 500 feet of PLA filament to create 3D models to your heart’s content. Shipping is set to take place in August.

That leaves the rest of the year for some heavy-duty three-dimensional drawing.
