Three 3D Printing Companies We are Stalking at SXSW

Three companies of major interest to the 3D printing industry will be making their appearance at Austin’s SXSW Interactive conference this month, two start-ups and one well-established 3DP player. BioBots and CreoPop will be present at the event’s Accelerator startup competition, while XYZprinting has been nominated for the Interactive Innovation Awards.

Inventor of 3Doodler 3D Printing Pen Launches 3Doodled Rocket

It was with great fanfare that Pete Dilworth, co-founder and inventor of 3Doodler, the first 3D printing pen, launched his second generation 3Doodler. The launch took a particularly literal direction — skyward — with a fully functioning model rocket created with 3Doodler 2.0.

3Doodler 2.0 Rocket Launch (Raw Cut)

To celebrate the stratospheric launch of 3Doodler 2.0, Pete Dilworth, inventor and co-founder, decided to stage a second, very different kind of launch…

“The basic process for building the rocket was pretty straightforward. I started by rolling ordinary white printer paper into tubes, and then found a picture of the Apollo rocket online in order to figure out the proper proportions. Once I had those basic pieces in place I simply spent a while extruding plastic in a winding motion, forming the hollow tubes for the rocket.

The cone shaped parts of the rocket were laid out using a simple cone template generator that I found online too. I then joined all the pieces together using the 3Doodler and installed four “C” model rocket engines.

The whole process took about 3 days, with me Doodling for around 4-5 hrs/day – so at most it took 15hrs to make.

The final rocket stands at about 40″ tall, about 3.6 inches in diameter, and weighs just under 1lb. It took just over 8 packets of PLA plastic to make.

With the final touches complete (Doodling our logo onto the body of the rocket), it was time to launch!“

“The launch itself was a surprising success, with the rocket reaching an estimated height of 150m or 500ft. The best part is that the damage to the rocket minimal. However, the emotional trauma to the nearby geese seems to have been more severe! Unfortunately for them the rocket is certainly in good enough shape for me to install some more engines, Doodle some patch-ups, and orchestrate another launch!

In terms of improvements for next time, I would say the main thing I would do would be to add a standard parachute system (I simply ran out of time to add one this time around).

And in terms of the biggest challenge? Keeping the paper tubes as round as possible was difficult, so I simply doodled rings around them to help them keep their shape. It’s funny to think that I Doodled and launched a rocket hundreds of feet above us, something seemingly very high tech, and yet the trickiest part was keeping the paper tubes in place. But that’s the beauty of learning to make things all over again with the 3Doodler, new challenges arise, and new solutions are found!”

Thanks to Pete Desiderio, Dan Spector and Sarah Spector for literally helping to get this off the ground!

3Doodler 3D Printing Pen Allows One Artist to Create a Masterpiece Like Nothing Seen Before

New forms of visual arts do not come about very often. Let’s just stop and think about it for a moment. Painting, sculpting, and drawing have pretty much been around since the beginning of man. There are new forms of art that have come about due to new technologies such as computer graphics, but it’s not too often that technology brings forth an entirely new tool for creating art.

SXSW Finalist CreoPop Gets Major Funding for Their 3D Printing Pen

If the financing success that 3D printing pens are obtaining is any indication, future generations will begin their path toward the “blended reality” creative ecosystems envisioned by HP by 3D drawing in the air. These pens lower the barrier of entry into 3D creativity as they are extremely affordable and do not require any previous CAD skills.

3Doodler 2.0 Becomes 1st Hardware Sequel to Pass $1 Million on Kickstarter

The 3Doodler was one of Kickstarter’s most successful crowdfunding campaigns, raising over $1 million in one day when it was launched. In tandem with CES, the company behind the 3Doodler, WobbleWorks, launched a second Kickstarter to fund the second generation 3Doodler and, it seems, history has repeated itself. In just ten days, the 3Doodler 2.0 raised over $1 million in funding, more than 3645% its target of $30,000.
