LET’S KEEP THINGS COMPACT

Portabee GO is the most compact 3D printer to date, yet still achieves a large build volume of 12cm x 16cm x 12cm. Other 3D printers begin to seem like gigantic microwave ovens when compared to the neat profile of a Portabee GO.

PRECISION 3D PRINTING

Constructed from robust aluminum and steel, Portabee GO achieves fantastic accuracy. Portabee GO aims to rival high end 3D printers in precision, without all the bulk, at a fraction of the price.

AUTO CALIBRATION

Bed leveling is a big time waster, so we’ve engineered the GO to calibrate itself. The GO automatically detects a level plane before each 3D print, improving your workflow and saving you from all that cursing.

WARRANTY

Portabee GO has a 6-month warranty, so you can rest assured that you will be up and running smoothly with your new 3D printer.

Please note that warranty will be void (for the extruder only) if used with ABS. PLA is the tested & recommend build material for GO.

Extruder assemblies are modular however, and can be purchased separately, in the case that ABS is used and problems are experienced.

SUPPORT

Our 3D printing helpdesk is also on call 365 days of the year. 3D printing is our mission, and we will guide you to 3D printing success.

FAQ’S

How difficult is the software side of things?

Progress in (affordable or free) 3D printing software has been accelerating during these past few years.

The recommended software package (CURA, Pronterface, Sketchup) is totally free, pretty awesome, and can be reasonably understood over a weekend.

There is a really cool ecosystem of other software options growing now also, and Portabee GO can be configured for use with most of the stuff out there.

Printing settings can depend on the geometry of the model also, and speeds and extrusion settings can take some experimentation.

But things on the software side are very understandable, please visit the software page to download and install, and you can try it all out for free.

What if the lever arm undergoes some drooping over time?

So indeed, despite being extremely rigid, the lever arm will undergo some small transition over time.

The autolevel feature comes in very handy here, and can adjust for this. The autolevel runs before each print, and a fresh plane is calculated. The Z-axis will move up and down in compensation, and the movement of the nozzle will be accurate.

10 weeks is a long time to wait! What is going on?

Ok, so during 2014 and 2015 we have been shifting our operation to a mass manufacturing process.

This has taken some time to get right, and we are just seeing the first batches produced.

Wait time will be reduced drastically in the near future as we see the benefits of our new manufacturing approach.

So, apologies! But yes, current GO orders will be a bit ‘waity‘.
