It may not be as cool as Iron Man’s transforming briefcase armor, but Jean-Luc Guillemette’s Case-Rap is still a cutting edge suitcase. This portable 3D printer is ready to print within seconds of unfolding.
Jean-Luc based the Case-Rap on the Mendel 90, one of the many spinoffs of the RepRap 3D printer. The version you see here has an MDF case, but Jean-Luc says he’ll use Russian plywood for succeeding versions to save on weight and because he doesn’t find the MDF’s look appealing. It took him a total of 12 hours and about $280 (USD) to make the Case-Rap.
