SECTION 1: WARNINGS

Disposal of this product

At the end of your 3Doodler Create+’s life, please do 

not dispose of it in your general household waste. In 

order to prevent possible harm to the environment 

or human health from uncontrolled waste disposal, 

please dispose of your 3Doodler Create+ separately 

in accordance with local laws and regulations. For 

more information on the separate collection systems 

for waste electrical and electronic equipment, please 

contact your local municipal authority. You can also 

contact the retailer from which you purchased your 

3Doodler Create+, who may have a recycling service, or 

be part of a specific recycling scheme that you can use.

- The Nozzle of the 3Doodler Create+

  can become hot. DO NOT touch the

  Nozzle, or you may be burned! 

- DO NOT allow the Nozzle near or in

    

contact with flammable materials.

- Inform others in the area that 

    

the Pen is hot and should not be

    

touched.

Unplug and set the Control Switch 

to OFF when not in use or before 

storing. 

Allow the Nozzle to cool completely 

before storing.

The Unblocking Tool can become 

hot. DO NOT touch the metal part 

of the Unblocking Tool after using 

it to clean your 3Doodler Create+, 

or you may burn yourself!

DO NOT use the 3Doodler Create+ 

near bathtubs, showers, basins 

or other vessels containing water.

filament approved by us. Misuse 

of your 3Doodler Create+, setting 

your pen to the wrong heating

W A R N I N G S

SECTION 2: GETTING STARTED 

WITH 3DOODLER CREATE+

How it Works:

The 3Doodler Create+ melts 

Plastic and uses a motor and gears 

(

Drive Gear) to push it through the Pen’s hot end (Nozzle) in a 

thin line. This process is called 

extruding or extrusion, and we 

will refer to it throughout this User Manual. Once extruded, 

Plastic 

cools and hardens instantly, allowing you to draw on surfaces and 
in the air. This User Manual will show you how!

We created this User Manual as a step-by-step guide to 

get you comfortable with your 

3Doodler Create+ and 

its features. Once you are familiar with these steps, you 

will be able to Doodle with confidence. Skipping steps 

may result in a less enjoyable time with your 

3Doodler Create+.

Step 6: Reverse and Remove  

Plastic

Once 

Plastic stops reversing, 

it is safe to remove it from the 
Pen by gently pulling on the 
back of the strand.

With 

Pen set to ABS / FLX, wait 

for 

BLUE Light to come on.

Plastic that is shorter than 5.3 inches cannot be reversed. 
You should feed it all the way through your 

3Doodler Create+ and 

use it up. (Alternatively, you can push 

Plastic out the back - see 

Section 3, Step 3B.)

NOTE:

Before we continue, it’s time you learned about the different 
types of 

Plastic you can use with the 3Doodler Create+ 

(and which settings to use for each type).
ABS (MATTE):

Temp: ABS / FLX Temp 
Light: BLUE
Feature: Great for drawing in the air.
How to tell: Plastic has white 
semi-circle ends.

PLA (GLOSSY / CLEAR / 

METALLIC / SPARKLE ): 

Temp: PLA Temp
Light: GREEN
Feature: Gossy and making it perfect 
for artistic creations.
How to tell: Very rigid, no white 
semi-circle ends.

Now that you’ve Doodled with ABS Plastic, we want 

to show you everything you need to know about 

changing Plastic and introduce you to the different 

types of Plastic.

FLEXY:

Temp: ABS / FLX Temp 
Light: BLUE
Feature: Make flexible, 
bendable Doodles.
How to tell: Plastic is very flexible.

After removing a 

Plastic strand 

from the 

3Doodler Create+

cut and remove any partially 
melted material at the end of 
your strand before re-feeding 
it into the 

3Doodler Create+

This will reduce blockages and 
clogging issues.

1. My Pen won’t turn on! 

    (Light doesn’t turn on)

Let’s double check the following:

A. Is the Power Adapter plugged into a working power outlet?

B. Is the end of the Power 

Adapter connected to the 

correct part of the 

Pen?

If you have a spare power adapter around the house please 

use it to test your 

3Doodler Create+. This will help determine if 

the problem is with your 

3Doodler Create+ or with the Power 

Adapter provided in the box.

NOTE:

C. Make sure the Control 

Switch on your 3Doodler 

Create+ is not set to OFF.

3. My Plastic is not extruding from

    my 3Doodler Create+.

3A. Plastic not engaging properly with the Drive Gear:

Gently push until you feel the strand pulled through the

 Drive 

Gear on its own. 

If the above does not work, reverse the 

Plastic fully from the Pen

(See Section 2, Step 6) Snip ends, then reinsert and try again.

If 

Plastic is too short to be removed from the Pen, move to 3B.

3B. Plastic is too short to be removed from the Pen:

Try unscrewing the 

Nozzle and 

using the 

Unblocking Tool.

While 

Pen is hot (BLUE or 

GREEN Light on), use Mini 
Spanner
 to unscrew and 
remove 

Nozzle anti-clockwise. 

While using the 

Reverse feature 

of the 3Doodler Create+, insert 
Unblocking Tool through open 
front end of 

Pen and gently 

push any excess 

Plastic out 

through the back of the 

Pen.

Mini Screwdriver 

or 

Unblocking Tool to lift 

and release 

Plastic from the 

Drive Gear and out of the Pen 
through the open area beneath 
the 

Maintenance Cover or 

from the 

Plastic Loading Port.

2. My Plastic is extruding but it 

    won’t stick to the paper, or is 

    curling up around the Nozzle.

Stop extruding and start 
again using the following 
instructions:

When the 

Plastic resumes 

extruding, push the 

Nozzle 

firmly down into the paper, 
allowing 

Plastic to stick to the 

surface. 

Drag the 

Plastic along the 

paper or surface in a continuous 
unbroken line as if you were 
writing with a pencil. 

Keep your movement slow and 
steady. The 

Plastic should hold 

to the paper and not curl up 
around the 

Nozzle.

Blue or 

Green 

Light

Unblocking 
Tool

Nozzle may loosen with 
continued usage (or in transit). 
While 

Pen is hot (BLUE or 

GREEN Light on), gently turn 
Nozzle clockwise to tighten 
it using the 

Mini Spanner 

provided. Stop tightening once 
you first feel resistance so as 
to avoid over-tightening the 
Nozzle and breaking it.

A. Click either the FAST or SLOW button once.
B. If Step A does not solve this problem, please unplug your 
3Doodler Create+ and then plug it in and try again. 

5. My Plastic won’t stop extruding.

4. My Plastic is leaking from

    around the Nozzle. 

While the 

Pen is on and hot (BLUE or GREEN Light), double click 

either the 

FAST or SLOW button. Light will start flashing to signal 

the

 Plastic is reversing. Once the Plastic stops reversing, it is safe 

to remove it from the

 Pen by gently pulling on the back of the 

strand.

If 

Plastic is too short to reverse, see Section 3, Step 3B.

6. How do I reverse my 

    unused Plastic?

It is possible that the 

Plastic is either too short to reverse all the 

way out of your 

3Doodler Create+, or that the Plastic has moved 

past the 

Pen’s Drive Gear system.

You will be able to check for these issues by looking through the 
Maintenance Cover

7. I have reversed my Plastic but

    cannot get it out.

For both of these issues, you can try the following options:
 Insert a new strand of Plastic or Unblocking Tool to push the 
remaining 

Plastic through while Pen is ON and extruding.

Plastic reversed, but too short to take out and no longer in 
contact with the 

Drive Gear.

Plastic is beyond Drive Gear. 

Or
 While using the Reverse feature of the 3Doodler Create+, remove 
Nozzle and use Unblocking Tool to push Plastic out the back of 
the 

Pen. (See Section 3, Step 3B).

1. My Pen won’t turn on! 

    (Light doesn’t turn on)

A. Is the Power Adapter plugged into a working power outlet?

If you have a spare power adapter around the house please 

use it to test your 

3Doodler Create+. This will help determine if 

the problem is with your 

3Doodler Create+ or with the Power 

Adapter provided in the box.

C. Make sure the Control 

Switch on your 3Doodler 

Create+ is not set to OFF.

3. My Plastic is not extruding from

    my 3Doodler Create+.

3A. Plastic not engaging properly with the Drive Gear:

Gently push until you feel the strand pulled through the

 Drive 

Gear on its own. 

If the above does not work, reverse the 

Plastic fully from the Pen

(See Section 2, Step 6) Snip ends, then reinsert and try again.

If 

Plastic is too short to be removed from the Pen, move to 3B.

3B. Plastic is too short to be removed from the Pen:

3C. Plastic may be wrapped 
around the Drive Gear. 

Remove 

Maintenance Cover 

using 

Mini Screwdriver 

provided in the box. 

Use the 

Mini Screwdriver 

or 

Unblocking Tool to lift 

and release 

Plastic from the 

Drive Gear and out of the Pen 
through the open area beneath 
the 

Maintenance Cover or 

from the 

Plastic Loading Port.

While 

Pen is hot (BLUE or

Nozzle clockwise to tighten 
it using the 

Mini Spanner 

provided. Stop tightening once 
you first feel resistance so as 
to avoid over-tightening the 
Nozzle and breaking it.

A. Click either the FAST or SLOW button once.
B. If Step A does not solve this problem, please unplug your 
3Doodler Create+ and then plug it in and try again. 

5. My Plastic won’t stop extruding.

4. My Plastic is leaking from

    around the Nozzle. 

While the 

Pen is on and hot (BLUE or GREEN Light), double click 

either the 

FAST or SLOW button. Light will start flashing to signal 

the

 Plastic is reversing. Once the Plastic stops reversing, it is safe 

to remove it from the

 Pen by gently pulling on the back of the 

strand.

If 

Plastic is too short to reverse, see Section 3, Step 3B.

6. How do I reverse my 

    unused Plastic?

Snip the ends of your 

Plastic now for easier loading 

and Doodling later.

It is possible that the 

Plastic is either too short to reverse all the 

way out of your 

3Doodler Create+, or that the Plastic has moved 

past the 

Pen’s Drive Gear system.

It takes around 60-90 seconds for your 

Pen to heat up. If, after 

that time, the 

Pen still does not heat up and the Light remains 

RED, turn the Pen ON and OFF and try again. If that still does not 
work, please contact us at 

help@the3Doodler.com and we will 

assist further.

8. My Pen won’t heat up! 

    (light stays red).

SECTION 4: TIPS AND BEST 

PRACTICES

• For optimal Doodling, we suggest using the correct temperature 
settings for your 

Plastic

• DO double check which type of Plastic you are using before you 
turn on the 

3Doodler Create+ and insert a Plastic strand. If your 

Plastic strands get mixed up, here is a handy table for sorting and 
identifying what you’re working with. 

   

Pay attention to Plastic types 

and settings

ABS (MATTE):

Temp: ABS / FLX Temp 
Light: BLUE
Feature: Great for drawing in the air.
How to tell: Plastic has white 
semi-circle ends.

 

PLA (GLOSSY / CLEAR / 

     

 

METALLIC / SPARKLE ): 

Temp: PLA Temp
Light: GREEN
Feature: Gossy and making it perfect 
for artistic creations.
How to tell: Very rigid, no white 
semi-circle ends.

FLEXY:

Temp: ABS / FLX Temp 
Light: BLUE
Feature: Make flexible, 
bendable Doodles.
How to tell: Plastic is very flexible.

Unsnipped Ends

VS

Snipped Ends

• DO give your 3Doodler Create+ a rest after every 2 hours of 
continuous Doodling. 30 minutes of down time should be plenty.

Once the

 Plastic stops reversing, it is safe to remove it from the 

Pen by gently pulling on the back of the strand.

• If you ever remove your 
Nozzle, DO NOT remove it 
when your 

3Doodler Create+ 

is cold. 

Light should be BLUE 

or 

GREEN.

  
• If you ever need to tighten 
your 

Nozzle, DO NOT force 

the 

Nozzle or overtighten it, 

as you could break the 

Nozzle 

and permanently damage your 
3Doodler Create+.

Treat your Nozzle right

Do not forget to snip your 

Plastic ends

Take a break

• After removing a Plastic strand 
from the 

3Doodler Create+, cut 

and remove any partially melted 
material at the end of your 
strand before re-feeding it into 
the

 3Doodler Create+. This will 

reduce blockages or clogging 
issues.
