About this deal
Remember that the plastic has approx 30 seconds before it goes hard so you can make some adjustments by hand. plastics have been tested for heavy metals, and have undergone full toxicological risk assessments, passing each and every test. This Doodler in this 3Doodler Start Essentials Pen Set is perfect for inspiring vision for projects, decorations, jewellery, recreating everyday objects, designing buildings, enhancing space-related understanding, even developing fine-motor skills – and anything else you or your child can conjure up, imagination is limitless! It is compact and easy to use, the 3Doodler pen uses thin strands of plastic that are fed through the pen, gently heated so that they come out in soft, malleable form.
Improvements include greater control in fast/slow speeds for different Doodling techniques, more reliable performance with different plastic types, greater durability, and new monochromatic pen colors. It was nice that we all did it together as a family and I’m looking forward to seeing my son use it more.This blog is pretty much anything that pops into my head, an eclectic mix of family life and lots more. The only child-safe 3D printing pen: developed without hot parts, completely safe for children aged 6 and over. It’s not as complex as you might think, all you have to do is choose a strand of plastic and feed it into the top of the pen. Recommended print surface: smooth, flexible surface; like a laminated sheet or official 3Doodler Start DoodlePad.
When the melted plastic leaves the tip of the 3Doodler Start+ 3D Printing Pen, it is soft and malleable, but will solidify within seconds to create a solid structure that holds its shape. Once kids get a taste of what it's like to use their hands and minds to bring their 3D ideas to life, they will excel. Young learners ages 6-13 years old will thrive when they experience what it’s like to use their hands and minds as they bring their ideas to life in 3D!There are lots more detailed 3D models to make using the pen which I think would be great for older kids but Daisy was more than happy with her simple designs. You do need a good level of patience though as it does take time to create one of the stencil designs. The templates in the book are really easy to use as you can simply doodle straight onto a flat surface, the plastic cools almost immediately and lifts off the template with ease. The Activity Guide is amazing and takes you step by step from your first doodle to your first creation.
Maybe a couple of practice strands before you create the real deal as it’s good to have a play around first and get used to the speed of the pen. The 3D printing pen and creations are not hot to touch and use biodegradable Eco-Plastic making it totally safe for kids to use.As tactile learning toy, the 3Doodler Start inspires creativity, design, planning, building and spatial understanding – perfect for STEM learning! If you don’t want it to stick then don’t press too hard, otherwise wait a few moments for the plastic to harden and you should be able to peel it off. I think she enjoyed freestyling more than actually creating a specific design which is great as she was still having fun and learning at the same time. It is a good idea to let your child have a practice, either in the activity book or on a piece of paper. Daisy was delighted with her creation, she found the pen so easy to use but did need some help inserting the plastic strands.
