We have no idea why you would want to take a 3D printer with you on the road. If you’re one of the rare people who actually have that requirement, however, you might want to consider picking up one of Ultimaker’s 3D printers, which come with an optional Ultimaker 2 Go Backpack accessory for conveniently transporting a desktop-sized fabrication device.
No, this isn’t a bag that can carry any similarly-sized 3D printer. Instead, it’s a set of straps, plates, and fastening hardware that allow you to transform the Ultimaker 2 Go 3D printer’s packaging into a functional backpack for lugging the compact fabricator on your back while making your way around town.
The Ultimaker 2 Go Backpack consists of a pair of plates, one for the top of the packaging and one at the bottom, which are cobbled together using eight straps and a set of screws, along with a pair of adjustable shoulder straps for comfortably getting around with the printer in tow. It only works with the outfit’s new Ultimaker 2 Go, by the way, since it’s the only one reasonably small (15.7 x 12.2 x 21 inches with the thick foam packaging) and light (30 pounds with packaging) enough to carry on your back without things getting unruly. And, yes, the packaging is large enough that there’s room inside to carry 3D-printing tools and gear.
You can get the Ultimaker 2 Go Backpack for €59.95, although you’ll also have to own the Ultimaker 2 Go 3D printer, which costs a more expensive €1,195.
