i'm almost ready with the casework and preparations to go to
crowd-funding.... and i have to leave holland and get ready to move
each month *every* month to a different country until the end of this
year, to track the laptop and the microdesktop through crowdfunding.
now, i am *going* to need a portable 3d printer. i've looked....
these are not suitable:
they're either too big or the print size is too small.
by using a corexy design  i can get speed, accuracy and rigidity
into a compact size. i've found the Fusebox  and like it a lot.
question: would anyone be willing to sponsor the creation of the first
prototype? (yes i will be putting it into crowdfunding in its own
right). components cost will be somewhere around the $USD 600 mark
which really isn't a lot.
the key advantages for engineers of this design is that they'd
actually be able to get on an aeroplane with this as hand-luggage.
with a build volume of 200x200x200, it would fold down into its own
box at around 320 x 280 x 150mm.
so going to customers and bringing a 3d printer to work on-site,
carried on a motorcycle, scooter, bicycle or on foot, is a distinct
interested let me know. i have about 2 months to get this printer
completed and functional.
