Protective Carry Case for Ultimaker


Recommended Posts

Posted · Protective Carry Case for Ultimaker

I travel with my Ultimaker 2 and I would like to do that more safely.

Are there any recommended travel cases for the UM2? How about any experience with making one? Something else that might fit? I am looking for something as off the shelf as can be.

Maybe somewhere to just get foam casing they are currently delivered in? http://www.fabbike.cc/2015/06/say-hello-to-our-ultimaker-2-go/

Thank you,

    Do you travel by car?

    I made a "base" from some scrap wood, which I fix in the carboot with some tensioning straps. I made the base somewhat to big, with about 10cm edges all around, and fill it with some old foam. Put one strap over the UM to hold it in place. Nothing fancy but it didn't cost anything...

    Sounds like I may build one myself then! I am thinking plywood with straps is a easy way to do it.

    I am sure there is some travel case out there, that although is not made specifically for the Ultimaker, that may fit it nicely. It would be nice to have something to fly with.

    Until then, custom we go!

    Thanks for the foam casing knowledge as well, if they come out with a foam version for something bigger that would be nice.
