3D printing is one of the most popular technologies at present. However, there are very few 3D printers which people can carry it with them and use it at any place or time. Freaks3D is a portable 3D printer which could solve this problem. It will make it easier for 3D printing enthusiasts to print out their favorite objects whenever they like. The project is running a crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo and in three days, more than 370% of the total funding goal has already been reached. How can you benefit from this 3D printer? Let us check out this post to know more.

The portable 3D printer has been developed by Elecfreaks, a company based in China. The company stated in their website: “As makers, we love 3D printing, and 3D printing makes our lives easier. We use it to print mechanical parts, tools, prototype our products, verify our assumptions or just make gadgets we love. It’s easy, fast and low cost.”
“We are amazed by 3D printing technology. However, the 3D printers on the market are far from satisfying. Most of them are bulky, not lightweight enough to be carried around, a hassle to use, plus prices are ridiculously high. We want a reliable, affordable and portable 3D printer that we can take everywhere. More importantly, it should be easy to use for general consumer crowds like artists and designers, educators, and even children who are curious about creation.”
The printer weighs just below 3 kg so it is easy to carry the device around. Made of aluminum with a v-slot structure and sliders, the printer’s frame is strong and it can 3D print things accurately and reliably.
Features of Freaks3D
The printer can run on battery power and it offers an SD card for 3D prints. You can monitor your printing process easily and once one model is printed, you can just twist it to separate the 3D printed object. Different materials can be used and that too in various colors. Other features of the printer include:
- Smooth plug-in for filament
- Noiseless printing
- Pre-heating of platform not required
- Tape or paste not needed. Flex print bed is used
- Get a full LCD screen
You can pre-order your set of Freaks3D printer through the Indiegogo campaign. The Early Bird kits are already sold out. So, if you want to get your hands on this printer before it is released commercially, you have to back the project right now. At the time of writing, 30 days are left for the funding to end.
