    A while back a dutch designer sent me the files for his prototype 3D printer that folds up. What would be the communities interest in this design? I’ve been kicking it around, but I would need help with the software and electronics.

    Contact me if your interested.

    Maybe you should chat with Tony Davies or Italo?

    I have the files and some instructions from the designer, waiting for some hardware now. I hope to start by the end of the month.

    there is a video from infamous modder Ben Heck on youtube making a foldable, portable 3d printer. check it out. i’m sure it has lots of useful ideas and inspiration.

    Foldable printers are very intriguing! The first decent one I can think of is the original Printrbot jr and the Bukito.  They were / are two decent printers, but one thing they really lack is build size.  Another thing that has plagued other portable printers has been misalignment issues. Does this one have any safety guards in place to help combat misalignment issues?  I am definitely interested to see what this one may look like.

    Do you or he plan on sharing the build process?  It sounds pretty cool so far!
