Packing Up

Hello all,

I’m traveling next month, and I’ll have a lot of down time while I’m away. I’d like to pack up my Core to take along and burn some stuff on a different continent for a change. Is there any guidance on how I should dismantle the Core for most efficient packing? I’m wondering now if the baseplate will even fit in the suitcase!

Best regards,


I would recommend removing the gantry carriage and the laser unit. Packing them flat inside the machine.


I wound up not taking the machine as the baseplate was too large for our large suitcases. I’ve got another opportunity coming up soon, and I’m thinking of dismantling the whole thing down to initial parts and wrapping the oversized pieces in some excess cardboard and foam and seeing if Ethiopian Airlines can manage to not ruin them en route. Any bets?
