Doodle3D Brings Your Drawings To Life Via 3D PrintersBy: Zach Walton - April 17, 2013
3D printers are getting cheaper and cheaper all the time. Soon enough, we’ll start seeing more than just hobbyists and industrial designers working with the technology. Unfortunately, the CAD software designers use to make 3D models is still expensive and/or complicated. One new product hopes to solve that particular problem.
Doodle3D, not to be confused with 3Doodler, is a tool that transforms any simple sketch into an object that can be created on a 3D printer. It removes the learning barrier by taking care of all the complicated steps in the software and focusing solely on creativity.
Doodle3D is obviously not a replacement for traditional 3D printing software, but it’s a great tool that lets anybody just start creating with a 3D printer instead of learning how to use design software. The software then sends the file to the Doodle3D Wi-Fi box that connects to a 3D printer.
The Doodle3D Wi-Fi box was available for $88, but the initial allotment of 100 boxes have already sold out. The box is now available for $99. The project has just started, and it has already raised over $16,000 of the $50,000 requested.[h/t: Engadget]
