Makers and hobbyists that would like to build their very own portable folding 3D printer might be interested to know, open source design files and instructions for the foldable TeeBotMax 3D printer have now been published online and are available to all.
Emmanuel Adetutu, designer and developer of open source TeeBot 3D printer has this week released his designs for an improved version of the printer in the form of the folding TeeBotMax.
The concept behind the TeeBotMax 3D printer was to create folding 3D printer that was easy to assemble, yet portable making it capable of being transported from one location to another. As well as being strong enough to print accurate 3D models when required.
The design of the TeeBotMax folding 3D printer uses an aluminium frame to create a machine that is capable of printing object sizes of 200 x 200 x 250mm and measures 500 x 400 x 530 mm when assembled and 530 x 400 x 180 mm when folded, weighing just 7Kg.
Other features of the TeeBotMax include: Filament: Compatible with 3mm/1.75mm, ABS/PLA, Print Speed: 120mm/s, Nozzle: J head type 0.4mm, Tested Layer height/resolution: 0.1mm, Power supply: 12v 20a, Build time: one day.
