Ultimaker announces today that it has partnered with Doodle3D to make their WiFi-Box widely available to young makers.

Launched last April on Kickstarter, the Doodle3D is a WiFi-Box and sketching tool that allows you to draw, design and print with a single push of a button. Anyone who can hold a pencil to make his drawing can use it to extrude and twist his design into 3D, without having to use complicated 3D modeling tools.

Ultimaker will make the Doodle3D WiFi-Box available to enthousiasts through their online store. Starting from February 7th Ultimaker will offer the Doodle3D for free with every Ultimaker Original DIY-Kit purchase. So when you finish your drawing on a tablet, you can simply hit 'print' and your Ultimaker Original will start 3D printing. A couple of minutes later you can take your drawing of the build plate and show it to your friends.

"I started the Doodle3D project because I wasn't happy with the complexity of most 3D design programs. I wanted to make 3D drawing and printing so simple a 5 year old is able to use it, but also my grandparents would not be afraid of it. Anyone can make a drawing on a smartphone or tablet, the Doodle3D WiFi-Box converts your simple drawing to a unique 3D printable sculpture." says Doodle3D founder Rick Companje.

With every Ultimaker Original purchase, you can get a Doodle3D and the UltiController for free.

''This package is the most accessible way to get into 3D printing.'' says Ultimaker co-founder Erik de Bruijn. "Getting something you've personally designed out of a 3D printer is a magical experience. Doodle3D accelerates going from idea to reality in minutes, without special skills. And it's incredibly fun!"

This special package is offered for just €995 and available until the end of February. Orders made this month will be shipped in March.
