The new ROBO R2 printer, created by ROBO 3D, a company based in San Diego, USA, uses FDM technology and has a printing area of 20 X 20 X 25 cm. It have a camera on board, to never lose sight of the prints. Double extruder for printing two materials simultaneously is ideal for educational laboratories or small businesses.
ROBO R2: Features
The C2 is a compact 3D desktop printer. It has a nice and simple design, with easy access to the print area. It is compatible with the Robo app and also adds Wifi connectivity compared to its predecessor, the Robo R1. With its heated print bed it can handle most of the 3D print materials available on the market.
ROBO R2: Software
The printer uses MatterControl, an open source program developed by the MatterHackers community. It is versatile, easy for beginners to get the print without too much proof. While allowing 3D printing enthusiasts to choose between three different slicing programs (Slic3r, CuraEngine and MatterSlice) and adjust the section settings. Create temperature profiles for use with non-standard filament types or move the extruder along the X, Y or Z axis.
From the upper left corner of the Home screen, you can connect a printer and start or pause a print job. To print, you can select an object from your Library (which comes with 20 preloaded 3D files, and to which you can add your favorites) or choose a 3D object file to add. Once the object has been added, a 3D representation is displayed on the virtual print bed. You can change settings such as print quality, type of plastic and the presence of media or a raft. When you’re ready to print, just click the Print button, and when the extruder and printbed are heated to the correct temperature, printing will begin.
