Ultimaker recently came up with a way to solve the issue of transporting a 3D printer with a brand-new product called the Ultimaker 2 Go. While 3D printers have become smaller and more accessible over the years, their cumbersome design makes them difficult to carry from one place to the next. This backpack solves the issue of moving a 3D printer simply by adding straps to the outside of the device.

The Ultimaker 2 Go is a set of comfortable shoulder straps that attach to the foam packaging that the brand's printers are packaged in. Because the straps are meant to be used in conjunction with the original packaging, the foam container keeps contents sturdy and secure during transport without adding additional weight. This gives the wearer the flexibility to take their 3D printer with them anywhere they may be travelling.

As 3D printers continue to grow in popularity, this backpack system makes the technology more accessible in different spaces.
