The Portabee has been the first conveniently portable 3D printer in the world. It is easily collapsible in a matter of seconds and fits into a laptop bag, making it transportable 'on-the-go' - bring it along with you when taking a bus, a train... even on a bicycle in a haversack on your back! And since it's lightweight - weighing in at 2.8kg (6.2lbs) - you can bring it around anywhere with you!
And with a slightly larger 'laptop luggage' style bag, you can put the Portabee into the same bag as your laptop computer, along with some feedstock filament, power supplies for both devices (the Portabee uses a laptop-type power supply), some instant coffee sachets, cookies... you get the idea.
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.
The Portabee is available as an unassembled kit form with a colour illustrated step-by-step assembly guide. Assembled and tested Portabee 3D Printers are also available.
We now offer an alternative option to use Singapore Post Air Parcel Shipment for customers who prefer to have the most economical shipping method for their goods. And yes, we ship worldwide!
