The Portabee 3D Printer is a mobile unite that can collapse in a matter seconds and produces 3D objects out of plastic that the company claims smells like waffles.
The unit's frame clips on and off for transportation, and it relies on a laptop power supply, some filament material, and a laptop computer to function. It weights just 2.8 kg (6.2 lbs.) and can be easily carried by hand or in a backpack, the company says.
The printer kit includes an illustrated assembly guide in PDF format. It includes full linear bearings on all axes, hardened steel linear rods, a heated platform, a 0.5mm standard nozzle, and has a 120x120x120mm build volume.
