Learn how to make a puppy dog using the MYNT3D printing pen. Easy, fun gift for hours of creativity and no screen time. Technology without the screen.

1. Start by downloading the Puppy Dog Project Template. Use your printer settings to scale template if desired. 

2. Start heating your 3D pen. When it reaches the proper temperature, load the base filament color.

3. Trace over the outer edge of the body torso of the dog. Circle around layering the filament vertically as you gradually decrease the coil circumference.

4. Flip the body section over. Stabilize it on your surface with a pinch of sticky tack. Repeat the conical coiling on the other side until you've reach the desired width of your dog.

5. Trace the legs on the template, then attach. Use the 3D pen to add dimension and form. Draw on the paw pads.

6. Trace over the face, repeating the coiling technique for the nose and mouth area. NOTE: at this point, don't worry about having the profile fully formed. 

7. Repeat coiling for the back of the head and connect the 2 halves.

8. Connect head and tail piece to the body.

9. Now that the structure is complete, move on to the detailing.
