Portabee designs and manufactures personal 3D printers. The company was founded in 2011 with the goal of bringing personal 3D manufacturing to the people.
Why 3D Printing Matters
We envision a future where we are not simply passive consumers of mass produced goods, but active participants in the design and manufacture of our own custom and complex products.
Personal 3D manufacturing presents all kinds of new and extremely interesting possibilities. The impact of this style of production ranges from purely geometric to societal. These devices will have a significant impact on our lives in the very near term.
We work hard each day to produce innovative 3D printers that pave the way into an exciting future.
