keep the faith!
Just bought my second Robox - as a birthday present to myself. Yes I could have bought the dual filament kit or had my existing Robox upgraded, but I decided to get the latest one clean. I've tried a couple of other printers - at both ends of the cost range. Whatever comments I make on this forum that suggest I'm frustrated with the occasional problems I have with my Robox, I still like this printer. It's easy to use, has lots of features that are actually missing from others. I'd like to say that as it's British designed, this makes me proud of the technical expertise, but I don't want to sound jingoistic.
I look forward to the continuing developments with the Robox and if it's eventually possible to have a laser cutting attachment, this would be very useful. I don't know how you fit a laser in a machine that it wasn't designed for, but then technological development is no longer a case of 'if', but 'when'. I come from the era when the only commercial computer around was that created for J.Lyons teashops.
Yup I agree Paul, they are great printers that just have a few quirks. And the suggestions and improvements @17bt and I have made to mine.. re the head, 24v cable, magnetic bed and Z-axis are just to help improve further and some nice free R&D for CEL ;-).
How you get on with that Rigid Ink Floss?
@chazr33gtr I have the Rigid.ink floss now, but it always take me a little time to follow through with anything. So I've been distracted by other activities, but I will be dealing with this in the next couple of days.
Great to hear Paul, thank you!
New goodies are on the way for all Robox users. Backwards compatible or easily upgradable as usual.
Early this year we launched Mote and Root, these product enable all our customers to Wi-Fi and network enable their Robox's. forcing our customers to buying a whole new machine to add a feature is not CEL's way, we try and make hardware with very long service life.
We are also developing a larger machine that has many new features for those who need to create larger structural parts.
