The 3Doodler Story
The story of 3Doodler started out with a good dose of imagination, endless hours of engineering, and a sprinkling of luck and good timing.
From a handmade prototype in a Massachusetts maker space, to one of the most successful Kickstarter projects of all time, 3Doodler is now the best-selling 3D printing product out there. Along the way our community of creatives and educators has grown, using the 3Doodler in ways we never imagined, and changing the lives of those around them.
As our team has grown from two to two dozen, we’ve kept creativity and our customer at our core.
Now with over 2.5 million 3Doodlers shipped, and our pens making an impact in over 8,000 classrooms worldwide, the next chapter of our story is in your hands.
Where will your imagination and creativity take you today?

Our Plastics Promise
We want you to trust every Doodle you or your children create! That’s why we partner with the best engineers and factories around the world, and source only the highest quality plastics.
All 3Doodler plastic strands are made from the highest quality materials, at factories in the US, UK and Spain, and they have all been subjected to the strictest standards of safety testing. This includes passing RoHS testing, Toxological Risk Assessments, LHAMA compliance testing, and heavy metal testing by labs including Intertek and Bureau Vertias (two of the world’s most reputable testing labs).
Our 3Doodler Start plastics melt at low temperatures so that they are completely safe for kids, and they are also certified as compostable, meaning they will break down over time under typical household compost conditions. Something we are all pretty excited about is that ALL of our plastics are certified as recyclable.
We are proud to work with many trusted retailers, such as Michaels and Target, who value (and also insist on) high standards of quality and safety testing. Unfortunately, there are an increasing number of plastics available through online marketplaces which claim to be compatible with the 3Doodler, but are not. In addition to damaging your 3Doodler pen, the third party plastics are often sized wrong, low grade (resulting in poor quality output, including bubbling), and come from questionable sources, or have certifications from unknown labs where safety cannot be verified.
We promise to uphold only the highest standards when it comes to our plastics, and in doing so, we hope to make your choice as easy as… Doodling a pyramid!
