3D Printing Starter Bundle

Compact enough to fit in backpacks! 50 micron precision! Able to auto-level tall buildings in a single...sweep? Pass? The Portabee GO is a simple, mobile 3D printer suitable for all levels of people who want to get their 3D printing on. And even complete novices will find themselves churning out replicas of Aunt Jan's puggle to take care of this year's Christmas gift in no time with the 45+ hours of 3D printing tutorials accompanying the Portabee GO package.

The Portabee GO gives you a shot at creating the tchotchkes you'd normally pay good money for at the airport gift shop and kiosk in Mexico on your own. You'll even be able to craft 3D items you actually want to use: cell phone cases; chess pieces; models of the solar system and Kelly Brooks' boobs. GO printers are made of aluminum and steel and promise "fantastic accuracy" despite their small size. As a bonus, they use eco-friendly PLA filament as their printing material.
