LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
3Doodler announces retail and accessories news at CES, world's biggest consumer tech tradeshow
3Doodler are attending their first ever CES this January, with the announcement that the pen will be available across the US at Brookstone's retail stores, as well as online with quirky gift website ThinkGeek, the MoMA Store, and Maker Shed. Many more exciting retail partnerships will be named shortly, meaning that hobbyists, artists, designers and engineers from across the globe will now have easier access to 3Doodler. 3Doodler's official launch partner for design, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Store, firmly marks the pen as the must-have tool for artists and designers.
"3Doodler allows people to create amazing 3D objects without the restrictions of complicated software, limited only by their imagination" said Max Bogue, Co-Founder and CEO of WobbleWorks: "We wanted to create something that didn't require technical knowledge or expensive hardware. We're very excited to say that you can expect to see 3Doodlers across the globe, from the USA to Europe, Australia and Asia, before the summer, making 3D creation more accessible to the average person than ever before."
CES also marks the launch of an exciting range of 3Doodler accessories. The first is a holder for the pen, which makes storing the 3Doodler in between Doodling easier, while also doubling as a moveable platform to allow you to create larger structures with far less hassle. 3Doodler will also be launching the first in a series of changeable nozzles, allowing users to extrude plastic in different shapes and sizes; as well as DoodleBlocks™; silicon molds that can be easily "filled in" with the ABS or PLA plastic from the pen. The molds come in various shapes including stars, numbers, and letters, making it effortless to create perfectly shaped objects.
Daniel Cowen, Co-Founder explains: "The 3Doodler accessories, as well as the 100s of stencils now available on the 3Doodler website, are an integral part of building our community. 3Doodler continues to spark imaginations, as people find new ways of using the pen to create amazing things. We hope these new accessories give rise to even more innovation. It's a great start to the year - we've gone from being an unknown startup to shipping more than 25,000 pens, launching a series of add-ons to the 3Doodler, and retailing worldwide. Watch this space for exciting new partnerships."

About the 3Doodler http://www.the3doodler.com
The 3Doodler is the world's first 3D printing pen, having quickly become Kickstarter's most popular 3D consumer printing device and the third highest funded technology project on Kickstarter.
Designed by WobbleWorks, Inc., an emerging consumer electronics and robotics company with big ideas, the 3Doodler has been created to be compact and easy to use, you simply plug the 3Doodler into a power socket and start drawing anything in 3D within minutes. Whether freestyle 3D sketching, or tracing shapes from templates to make larger architectural structures, anything is possible.
Note: the plastic extruded from 3Doodler is safe to touch once it has left the pen, but the pen itself has a metal tip that can reach 240C.
