Here Connie__Doodles whipped up some very realistic ice cream cones using her 3Doodler Create+ 3D pen and our Create+ PLA Pastel bundle of filament.

We did our own variation of this Doodle as well – because….can you really ever have enough ice cream?! Check out this week’s tutorial for some smaller ice cream cones with a few different topping options. Although you can’t eat these, they can be fun kitchen decorations or excellent props for any kid’s kitchen!


Summer rewind

As summer comes to an official end on September 21st let’s take a moment to reflect back on some of the fun we had Doodling. We did a lot and covered some exciting events, including the launch of our Start+ 3D Pen!


We can’t forget about starting out the summer on a creepy-crawly note with bugs. We also had an awesome cicada Doodle since Billions of Brood X cicadas emerged across the eastern US in the early summer.
