A new, on-the-go 3D printer design out of California is designed to fit in a person’s backpack and is powered by the light of a smartphone or tablet.

T3D, a visible wavelength light-sensitive chemical resin development specialist headquartered in California, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its first 3D printer.”

“To operate the T3D printer, the design team has developed an exclusive app that allows a smartphone to perform the same function as a light projector in typical SLA machines.
