What is a 3D Pen?
A 3D pen is a pen that extrudes heated or warm plastic from the pen’s nozzle. You don’t need any software. There are no files to transfer, and no difficult tech to master. In the words of a teacher we work with, “whatever you imagine, you can draw. It goes from your brain, to your hand, right there.”
Surreal? Modern day sorcery? A hybrid of Harry Potter meets Harold and the Purple Crayon? It can seem that way at first, but believe us and our 2 million+ users, it’s real, it’s creative, and it’s a lot of fun.
With a 3D pen you can draw a raised graphic on a piece of paper or any flat surface. But what makes a 3D pen truly unique is its ability to “draw” in mid-air, allowing you to instantly form 3D structures right in front of you, which you can pick up and hold in your hand.
Who Would Use A 3D Pen?
Our community is very varied and there’s no one size fits all, but we see 3D pens mainly being used by artists, makers, designers (fashion and home), educators, engineers, DIY fixers, hobbyists, and just about anyone who wants to have some creative fun. Check out a few examples below and be sure to click their name to see more of their work.

Design & Personalize
Are crafting and decorating your creative passions? You’ve come to the right place. These powerful little pens can be used to spruce up your pad, or add some flare to your next big project. Take a boring bookend and transform it into something fun, make your own coasters, or Doodle an entire vase! Personalizing objects is a great way to give new life to them. Whether it’s adding to an existing object, making it from scratch, or creating one of a kind gifts, if you can imagine it, you can most likely make it with a 3D pen.
Whether it’s an abstract 3D painting, a true-to-life sculpture, or hanging art, you can use your 3Doodler to make unique masterpieces. With tons of colors of plastic to choose from, and changeable nozzles, the possibilities are staggering. You can even go “mixed media” like Niki.
Are you looking for a better way to visualize your ideas in 3D, or simply create some last minute earrings in that matching color? 3D pens allow you to do just that. While not as impressive as Patrick’s modernist dresses, or Eden’s lingerie, one of our founders even Doodled himself some “emergency” cufflinks. Use our PLA plastic to make stunning floral earrings that will guarantee compliments!
Fix & Hack
We’ll never forget the day one of our customers wrote us to let us know he’d used his 3Doodler to fix the broken casing of his Dyson vacuum. Cool. That got us thinking (and experimenting). Broken scissors, lost Nespresso trays, cable ties, damaged plastic pipes, camera clips… the list goes on. If you love to DIY around the home, 3D pens are for you! This simple handheld tool gives you a quick and easy way to fix or make anything plastic on the go.
How to draw with a 3D Pen?
Drawing in 3D may seem daunting at first, but that’s only because it’s new. There is a learning curve, but with a bit of practice and with the tips and tricks in this guide, we promise you’ll find using a 3D pen to be second nature in no time!
Start with 2D
Drawing in 3D for a beginner starts with… wait for it… 2D. To help you get used to the speed of the pen and the way the different plastics behave, we suggest kicking off with drawing in 2D. Choose a clean, flat surface like a piece of paper. Now grab a pencil and draw something simple on the paper (some lines and basic shapes would work great).
Draw Freehand in 3D
Once you’re confident drawing in 2D, it’s time to level up! Drawing freehand in the air gives you a whole new world of creative possibilities (and also makes people go “wow”).
