New toy!


A little while ago my husband discovered Kickstarter. He decided to support 3Doodler and about a month ago our parcel arrived. With the build up to Christmas it sat in the cupboard, but this week I pulled it out to give it a try.

So what is 3Doodler? you ask. Well, it's a machine that lets you draw in plastic in 3 dimensions. Cool, huh? You can find the website here. There are some fantastic creations.


I thought I'd make some parts for a necklace as my first try. The first ones were very wobbly as I was learning to control the pen. By the third stick of plastic I was beginning to get the hang of it. I can see more plastic jewellery in my future. However, my daughter has snaffled this one :)

  2. Your first attempt looks great, Tracy! Seems to be a funny toy to play with. But I'm afraid that the fumes such a thing produces by melting the plastic won't be very healthy.
