About this project
When we launched 3Doodler in February 2013 we asked you to imagine a pen that you could lift off the page to create real three dimensional objects; putting the power of 3D printing in the palm of your hand. The response was incredible, and as the original inventors of the 3D pen, we never could have imagined the endless creativity that the 3Doodler has inspired.
3Doodler would’ve never happened without the initial commitment of the Kickstarter community. With two successfully funded campaigns under our belt, we wanted to return our gratitude and celebrate Kickstarter Gold with these exclusive Star Trek™ Crew Edition pens that we’ve been excited to create with the permission of CBS Consumer Products.
These six Limited Edition pens, based on The Original Series and The Next Generation, are ONLY available on Kickstarter until 10th July 2017, and will start to ship shortly after the Kickstarter campaign ends.
Designed for Star Trek fans the galaxy over, these Limited Edition 3D pen sets come packed with detailed step-by-step instructions for Star Trek themed projects, so that you can bring your favorite Trekkie moments to life in your own home!
Kirk vs Picard: our 3Doodler Trekkies have chosen their captain. Which crew will you join?
Here's a quick recap on what the 3Doodler Create is, and how it works. Compact and easy to use, the 3Doodler extrudes heated plastic that cools almost instantly into a solid, stable structure - no computers or software needed. Simply plug your 3Doodler into a power socket and start drawing (or replicating) anything, in 3D, within minutes.
And now back to our Limited Edition Star Trek "Crew" pen sets...
As part of this campaign, we’re launching Limited Edition pens for both The Original Series and The Next Generation. That’s a total of six separate Limited Edition Pen Sets - three pens for each series:
From The Original Series:
- the Command Division pen in yellow, for those who know how to take charge
- the Operations Division pen in red, because you know how to fix things
- the Sciences Division pen in blue, when you need more than just Bones to solve a problem
From The Next Generation:
- the Command Division pen in red, so that you can make it so
- the Operations Division pen in yellow, to get a handle on tactical or fix that warp core
- the Sciences Division pen in blue, so you can crush it in the medical bay
THESE SIX COLLECTIBLE LIMITED EDITION CREW PEN SETS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE HERE AND NOW, AND WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE IN STORES OR ONLINE ONCE THIS CAMPAIGN ENDS. We do have plans for a general (single color) retail version Star Trek Pen Set, with fewer extras and no unique engravings or series specific details.
All Crew Edition pen sets come with:
- Limited Edition Star Trek themed 3Doodler Create 3D pen
- A unique numbered engraving (on the side of the pen)
- An additional pack of plastic (making a total of 3 packs, or 75 strands)
- Special Star Trek themed projects for you to create
- A 3Doodler Star Trek Leather Pouch to match your pen (in yellow, blue or red)
Each pen set has a total retail value of US$129.99.
Already equipped with a 3Doodler (and busy replicating up a storm of your own)?
We are also releasing a stand-alone Project Kit, which contains detailed step-by-step instructions for Star Trek themed projects and 3 packs of plastic (75 strands) in a selection of Star Trek specific colors, all for $24 ($29.99 Retail Value).
The kit offers you a chance to make a variety of items taken from the series, including Vulcan ears, a Klingon forehead, and your very own Enterprise from both The Original Series and The Next Generation.
Our reward levels are set up so that you can back as many as six pens. And as a nod to the avid collectors out there, with each additional pen backed, a larger discount applies.
We took full advantage of the spatial rift to deliver these pens at warp speed. We'll be shipping to every corner of the planet known as Earth, starting in July 2017 and completing all shipments within August 2017.
Note: All Star Trek 3Doodler Pens are from the "3Doodler Create" range of pens. 3Doodler Create pens should only be used with 3Doodler Create plastic strands, and not with plastic for the 3Doodler Start or 3Doodler PRO (which are not compatible with the 3Doodler Create).
