What bag/case do you use for transporting your Ultimaker1/2 ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I often demo 3D printing at different events and we bring Ultimaker 1 or now recently started toting the Ultimaker 2 around.

First, we just used a big blue IKEA bag. But it doesn't look too good, you cannot carry it comfortably and it doesn't shield it from rain/snow.

The Ultimaker 2 has a smaller footprint in total but it is a little heavier.

Recently I found and bought this "Base Camp Duffel XL" bag which can barely fit the Ultimaker 2 if you remove the spool holder and wiggle a bit to get it inside. Then you can even carry it on your back!

It's better than the IKEA bag, but it's still not ideal.

The printer is just too heavy/cumbersome to carry, especially since you also usually have rolls and tools to bring.

I would like to have a roller/bag combo which can fit at least an Ultimaker 2 (UM1 would also be nice) in it, can be rolled (on wheels) *and* that would have straps to put on your back to carry.

Something similar to this:

but bigger and with wide openings so it's easy to put the Ultimaker inside.

Does anyone know of such a bag?

Preferrably available in Sweden :wink:

Thanks,

Daniel

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
