Designed to tap into the imaginations of both children and adults, the 4th generation pen by Scribbler is an action packed 3D creator equipped with two nozzles. The Scribbler 3D Pen DUO is the “world’s first double nozzle 3D pen” and by all accounts, is a rather easy-to-use device.
The Scribbler Technology
So what sets Scribbler’s newest pen not only from fellow 3D pen competitors but also its in-house predecessors (Scribbler Nano and Scribble V3)? First and foremost, the duo-feed technology puts this pen into the category of a super-sonic 3D pen for two reasons. One, the two nozzle system enables users to use multiple colors when designing 3D projects; Two, filling objects takes half the time it would if using just a single nozzle 3D pen.
Whether you want to adjust the operating temp, switch between the six different speed settings, or seamlessly switch between plastic filaments, the entire creative process is fully customizable and controlled by the user every step of the building process. If you want your creation to “literally come off the page,” there are three simple steps to follow – making this one of the most user-friendly 3D pens hitting the market mid-August (2017):
Step 1: Plug in the Scribbler Duo and hit the feed button.
Step 2: Put the desired plastic filament in one or both feed spots.
Step 3: Hit the forward button and let the magic happen.
Compatible with both Scribbler’s own filaments but also other 1.75mm plastic filaments, the DUO extrudes a constant feed without once heated with the pen. A simple adjustment with the +/- speed control buttons allows for a seamless extrusion process. whether you’re a 12-year-old putting together a science project or a professional architect designing a 3D structure, the DUO is a highly versatile pen engineered from classic design principles.
Capable of creating an infinite number of shapes, the filaments that extrude from the nozzle instantly cool and solidify as you build – making it a fluid modeling process with a strong structural foundation. As described by Scribbler, “your own creation literally comes off the page.” The best part: there’s no need to be a professional artist to operate the Scribbler DUO.
With an oversized LED display positioned conveniently on the neck of the pen, users can control the operating temperature in one-degree intervals and at the same time, adjust the speed of the extrusion. Weighing only 2.125 pounds and standing at a length of 9.5 inches, Scribbler designed its latest 3D pen to be both ergonomic and highly portable. Housed in a durable casing, the DUO is engineered for longevity and has a nice feel during operation.
Scribbler positioned its 3D Pen DUO for both professionals as well as young creatives – bridging the gap by stressing the importance of developing spatial reasoning skills. For children aspiring to join the profession of engineering, architecture, design, fashion, piloting, sailing, or athletics, a solid foundation in spatial reasoning is critical for success. In the professional world, Scribbler explains, “an increasing number of employee training programs incorporate this skill to some extent in the modern age, where sketching graphics, symbols, computer design, and coding are incredibly important.
Whether you’re an aspiring teen architect or a design professional looking for a competitive advantage, the Scribbler 3D Pen DUO may develop the very skills that give you a leg up. If you’re like me and just want to create different colored 3D objects for recreation, then the Scribbler DUO is the best way to “become a creator of your own world.”
