Since their inception in 2012, ROBO 3D has been prolific. Headquartered in San Diego, not only are they busy producing 3D printers, but they are active and engaged within the 3D printing industry itself.
Heavily involved as CES rolls around again this January, we see ROBO 3D going even further to show users what they have to offer in terms of a comprehensive 3D printing experience; after all, this event is about pulling out all the stops–and they certainly shine in this area, once again.
This year, during CES and Showstoppers, ROBO 3D again embodies the definition of ‘bringing it’ for the consumer as they show off 3D printers, and include new content and specialty materials for their 2016 lineup.
Eventgoers should be enjoying a 3D printing extravaganza as ROBO 3D displays the wide range of innovation that can be brought to fruition with their 3D printers, highlighting items like 3D printed prosthetics, including their campaign for this to include an e-NABLE prosthetic limb 3D print kit with every ROBO 3D printer, as well as releasing fun items like new scented filaments in apple, blueberry, grape and strawberry. They will also have the following on display:
- Architectural models
- Artistic jewelry
- Film props
- 3D printing kits for items such as homemade guitars
- Educational tools
But wait, there’s lots more. Two new 3D printers are being highlighted, offering pricepoints and technical levels for beginners to those who are more advanced. The R2, retailing at just under $2,000, is a ‘pro-sumer’ printer. Designed by ROBO 3D as hardware for those who are more serious about making at home, or perhaps for use in mid-level business applications, it offers 1,000 cubic inches of build space and print speeds up to 300mm per second.
The more experienced 3D printing enthusiast can look forward to working with two materials at the same time, like PLA, ABS, or filament infused with wood, carbon and bronze. Add-ons are also available in the form of ceramics, food/cake decorations, and laser engraving.
Offering a mini version of nearly everything seems to be all the rage, and ROBO 3D too comes forth now with a preview of their R2 Mini. Priced around $1,000, it’s meant for those who are newer to 3D printing, seeking to print more simple models. Said to be the smallest model on the market, it is 10.5″ cubed outside with a build size of 125 cubic inches. While it is much more compact, it offers the same operating speed and material versatility as its larger counterpart, the R2, and boasts mobile connectivity as well.
ROBO 3D will also be offering up their new product, ROBO-Mobile, which allows for the convenience of WiFi, and mobile accessibility–a feature that is not only attractive for many users, but becoming expected. Referred to as a ‘connector enhancement,’ this is a device that allows for other ROBO 3D printers to be become WiFi-compatible. Discuss these new machines in the Robo 3D Forum on 3DPB.com.
You can check out the ROBO 3D booth at the Tech West 3D Printing Marketplace at the Sands Expo during CES until January 9th, 2016.
