Important mainly because the designer is a Nigerian.

TeeBot, a mobile 3D printer designed and developed by Nigerian programme/developer, Emmanuel Adetutu and Paul Lammerts, a Dutch DIY enthusiast have hit its €5,000 funding target on Kickstarter, less than 3 days after it was posted on the crowdfunding website.

Emmanuel and Paul, both based in Netherlands, designed TeeBot, an open-source foldable 3D printer fit in a portable suitcase and has already exceeded the funding by almost 50% with 27 days left to for the Kickstarter campaign to run. So you can still back the campaign.

“TeeBot allows you to take this power everywhere you go and still look cool,” Emmanuel says on the Kickstarter campaign page.

Emmanuel and Paul are looking to ramp up production and bring down the cost of producing a TeeBot via the campaign on KickStarter.

The developers are part of 3DSTUFFSNL, a 3D printing enthusiast group that helps to spread 3D printing technology simply by showing how the technology works.

Teebot is a RepRap-type 3D printer that can self-replicate, that is, produce components to make another 3D printer like itself. The printer weighs around 7.5Kg with Marlin firmware and SD support.
