Portabee Classic 3D Printer Kit


Portabee Kit is the original portable reprap kit, and remains as one of the simplest and best DIY 3D printer kits on the market

Lead Time:
1 Week

The Portabee 3D Printer Kit is a fully featured 3D printer that fits into a laptop bag and produces real world 3D objects out of plastic that smells like waffles.

The 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 your machine along with you when taking a bus, a train… even on a bicycle in a haversack on your back!

The Portabee Classic Kit 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 the 3D printer 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 favorite 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.
