This handheld fabrication device allows users to create rigid and life-sized objects. 

Fabricating ideas into tangible artifacts is an important process for realizing, discussing, and collaborating ideas. It is possible to output highly detailed artifacts using the combination of 3D computer graphics software and a 3D printer. This though has the flaws of having and the overly complex process "Scribbler" is a handheld device that aids the of reaching the goal, as users need to learn how to use computer graphics software and printing machines. Much like papercraft and clay modeling, the fabrication process involves the user modeling with their hand. Practical and sustainable artifacts and rapid prototypes can be constructed by molding material with heat-dependent rigidity.
