Robox: “Plug and [3D] Print”

Tech Radar has recently written of CEL’s new 3D printer, the Robox.   CEL, a British-based product development company, states that the Robox 3D printer will be simple to use thanks to its ‘plug and print’ functionality.  “The Robox, which will only be launched if CEL’s Kickstarter campaign reaches its $162,000 funding target, is powered by the company’s bespoke AutoMaker software that lets you load up a design before clicking start to set the machine in motion.”  At the time of this writing, the Robox Kickstarter campaign has raised roughly $125,210.   The Robox will also include “a number of proprietary features that allows it to print finely tuned objects – including a rotating bed mechanism, closed feedback loop, and dual-pinch-wheel extrusion system – all of which help the printer feed and layer adhesives evenly.”  Another feature of the Robox 3D printer is its “dual-nozzle system that…improves print speed by up to 300% compared to other printers.  [According to CEL’s Kickstarter campaign]  One [nozzle] is used to print on a detailed surface, whereas the other fills in larger areas, and both use a needle-valve system to stop substances oozing all over your shiny new desktop companion’s insides.”  The Robox will be released in March 2014.
