1) Measure your printers upper frontframe dimensions. 2) Print two or four pieces with high infill. 3) screw-mount two of them onto your printers upper front frame and optionally two on your printers lower front frame. edit: the torsional stiffness of the printers front worries me. It's probably better to mount them on the closed back. 4) Attatch shoulder straps. 5) Take your printer on a stroll.

Note: 1) The standard parameters are for an Ultimaker (top & bottom) and a belt of 24mm width. 2) Some back cushioning might be needed.
