3Doodler, the world's first 3D printing pen that you can hold in your hand, is now shipping on time to earlybird Kickstarter backers. 3Doodler allows people to create amazing 3D objects by simply drawing in the air.

3Doodler reached its target goal within hours of launch on crowd-funding site Kickstarter, and the pens will now begin shipping to 3Doodler's nearly 30,000 backers who helped them raise over $2.3 million.

Daniel Cowen, 3Doodler Co-Founder, explains: "We're thrilled to be on schedule with production and delivering on time to our 3Doodler backers this month, and we can't wait to see what they create."

Just like more expensive 3D printers on the market, 3Doodler uses both ABS and PLA plastic as the pen's "ink". ABS is very impact resilient and one of the most common plastics around, while PLA is a biodegradable "bioplastic" with a lower melting temperature than ABS, and very well suited to Doodling on glass, metal, or in other mixed medium creations. 3Doodler has developed straight cut 10" strands of plastic optimized for the 3Doodler pen, and buyers will receive 50 strands of plastic with each pen in a variety of eye-catching colors.

By raising the pen as you Doodle, the plastic is lifted off of the page and "draws" in the air, so the creator is free to design any shape, object or model that comes to mind. 3Doodler provides a wide array of creative possibilities, but is easy to use and requires only a power socket and a strand of plastic to start drawing within minutes.

The pre-order price for the 3Doodler is $99. Delivery is estimated for February 2014, if not before, and the 3Doodler will hit retail in early 2014.
