Submission + - 3D Printing vs. 3D Drawing (kickstarter.com)

TheSwift writes: The 3Doodler may be an answer for hobbyists who hope to join the 3D printing craze, but fear spending exorbitant amounts on complicated equipment. A measly $75 is the cost of one of these simple little devices that allows you to draw in 3D. Compared to the $500-$3000 price range of many of industrial 3D printers, it may be quite a catch for budget-conscious hobbyists.

On the downside, it lacks the to-the-micron precision of the advanced software that powers most 3D printers. Most people probably won't be designing the green, life-like Yoda heads that seems a standard for any printer. You probably won't "draw" any moving parts either.
