WobbleWorks has launched a small range of accessories to enhance the 3Doodler user experience. There's a 3Doodler stand, a foot pedal for extrusion control and a set of nozzles.
The 3Doodler is a crowdfunding success story. After raising over US$ 2 million on Kickstarter, a subsequent consumer launch has seen the 3D drawing pen shipping to more than 100,000 customers in the last 11 months.
The first of the new accessories is the 3Doodler stand. It's not just a place to hold an extruding pen when at rest, but has buttons on two of its legs to control the speed of flow from the nozzle. This allows users who don't have a steady hand to sketch clean and accurate lines.
The stand is available now and is priced at US$9.99.
The foot pedal made its public debut at IFA 2014, and plugs into the pen's body to control the rate of extrusion, freeing the user from having to sketch while pushing down buttons on the body of the 3Doodler. The foot pedal goes on sale September 22 for US$19.99.
The nozzle set consists of six interchangeable nozzles, including ribbon, square and triangle shapes, for doodling in new shapes and sizes. Between uses, the nozzles can be stored inside the body of a tool used to remove nozzles from the 3Doodler pen. The set starts shipping September 8 for US$19.99.
