The 3D printing pen was an invention of accidental genius, creativity and quick thinking. What started out as an error from a 3D printer, turned into an amazing venture into a handheld way to create 3D objects. The 3Doodler went on to raise nearly $4 million USD in two successful Kickstarts and has since become the best-selling 3D printing product of all-time. We speak to one of the Founders of 3Doodler, Maxwell Bogue.
