About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Young Creator's Dream!
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Our 3D printer had almost completed a 14-hour print when it missed a line, leaving an unplanned gap in the print. A small error had ruined hours of work, and we were going to have to start again. Then inspiration hit: “what if we just took the head of the printer off and filled in the gap?” A day later the 3Doodler was born. The first 3Doodler was a clumsy-looking, hand-assembled, device, with the words “3Doodler” etched onto its side in green and red in felt tip pen. The 3Doodler Start was a natural progression for us, creating a kid-safe and friendly device specifically for young creators!
What makes your product special?
The 3Doodler Start was specifically designed for young creators who love to express themselves through the things they make. The 3Doodler Start is also the first 3D printing pen on the market to be truly kid-safe and friendly. There are no hot parts! Designed to be as simple to use as possible, kids can can pick up the 3Doodler Start and get creating within minutes. The 3Doodler Start works wirelessly for up to an hour, and can also be used with a range of 3Doodler accessories, including our themed DoodleBlocksTM - simple templates for super Doodles!
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The best part has been building a vibrant and creative community! Starting with our first Kickstarter campaign, we have always put community front and center. Hundreds of thousands of units later, it's thrilling to see what our community has been doing with the 3Doodler, and how they have shared with and inspired each other (and us!). Their creations are all over social media sites and on our website, and extend from craft and design, through to innovative hacks and fixes, and into a never ending array of educational uses. With 3Doodler Start, that creativity and community will now embrace a whole new generation!
