Hailing from the Golden State of Califorinia, 3D printer producers Robo 3D (ASX: RBO) are now listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), marking a significant success in the fledgling (now 3-4 years old) company’s history and pre-empting market advancement in Asia and the Pacific.
Robo 3D printers
Robo’s printers so far all use the FFF method of 3D printing. At CES 2016, the Robo 3D R2 printer was recognized with an innovation award for its qualities in engineering, design, functionality and ingenuity compared to other 3D printers on the market. The company have also attained 4.6 out of 5 on the independent Verified Reviews site for their service and commitment to customers.
The Robo R2 was released in 2016 after a successful Kickstarter funding campaign. The company originally launched via a Kickstarter campaign in 2013, initially set up by a group of San Diego State University students who wanted low-cost and high quality 3D prints for their projects.
Their printers have found champions in the former editor of Wired Magazine, Qualcomm wireless telecom company and NASA’s youth program coordination team, firmly comfortable in educational and novice applications.
