The Portabee is the first conveniently portable 3D printer in the world. Easily collapsible in a matter of seconds it fits into a laptop bag and produces real world 3D objects out of plastic that smells like waffles.
The Portabee frame simply clips on and off for transportation. The machine relies on a laptop power supply, some filament material (plastic to be printed) and a laptop computer to function.
Lightweight, weighing in at 2.8kg (6.2lbs) you can bring the Portabee along with you when taking a bus, a train… even on a bicycle in a haversack on your back!
The Portabee opens up numerous possibilities which were previously impractical:
Designers and design engineers can now offer to print out a sample of their design solution at the client’s premises, on the spot and with applied design changes, for quick evaluation.
Educators can loan Portabees to students for a time period to complete a school assignment involving 3D printing, be it an arts, design, or engineering discipline.
An artist can walk into her favourite cafe, suddenly get in a creative mood, whip out the Portabee and a laptop and start designing something and print it out, all while sipping her usual cuppa and enjoying some cheesecake.
