Modding guru Ben Heck loves building 3D printers. He created a briefcase 3D printer that you can take everywhere last year and showcased the detailed building process in his show. Ben Heck is originally known in the hacking/modding community for his portable PS3 and Xbox360 Laptops and custom controllers for disabled players. Earlier he also helped a wheelchair-bound expectant father Josh Benhart prepare for the arrival of his child by designing a motor assembly mod that easily attaches to a wheelchair.

For his No.4 3D printer he wants to build something not only portable, but can print two identical objects simultaneously. He explained in greater detail in Ben Heck Show his building process. Check out the videos below:
