Portable Carbon-Fibre 3D Printer

The 3D printer was designed to be as lightweight and portable as possible, without sacrificing the bed space required to print larger, more complex creations. It features a low profile printing assembly, with a bed that can be removed and reattached quickly using powerful magnets that ensure no loss to calibration and allow for the assembly to be easily transported.
The main structure of the printer is made from carbon-fibre, giving it high strength and preventing calibration losses over time due to warping or fatigue; it also prevents damage during transport. The printer can communicate via USB and be powered by the mains, but it can also be powered via a battery and loaded using a SD to maximise portability.

Loves Inventing, sailing, practicing Kung Fu and cooking. While he was living in Shanghai he joined the Shanghai Hackespace (XinCheJian) and he built the first working DIY 3D printer of the space from scratch. After that experience he decided to make his life hobby and passion into his full day activity. He then designed and fabricated his own 3D printers, creating different models with different capabilities including a portable 3D Printer. He founded the first Fab Lab in China “XinFab” His present goal is to build a Fab Lab in a farm. Located in the south coast of Portugal and to have an accessible place for anyone wanting to invent, prototype, change, make!
