Description

Compatible with all elements of the Robox eco-system; Robox® (RBX01), RoboxDual™ (RBX02).

Using Root, you can see the status of any connected machines and also control them directly.

Robox Root is a connectivity extension platform for all Robox printers. Its core function is to add network capabilities to multiple Robox from a single Root, with secondary functions to include a web interface and printer sharing across a network. Any machines on the network will be automatically discovered by our AutoMaker software, allowing them to be controlled from multiple locations. It is perfectly suited for use in offices, schools or other professions where multiple users need easy access to a single or multiple printers.

Root™ includes a custom made 3D printed case, designed to be as compact as possible and to follow Robox design cues. Use with a separate powered hub to connect more than 3x Robox.

The software for Root can be updated over the network to always ensure that you’re using the latest version, and firmware for all connected Robox can also be updated remotely. The embedded web server hosts an interface which can be accessed from any device, whether it is another PC/Mac, Phone or Tablet and allows a number of status and control functions.

Case/stand colour will vary.

These parts are designed to print without support. We find TitanX ABS gives the best results and usually print on default Normal at 200 microns.

If you print your own case you will require 2 screws, we used socket cap screws with 3.8mm diameter 2mm depth heads with a thread diameter of 2mm and a thread length of at least 6mm. A longer thread is OK as there is space behind the screw boss. The mote case also has spaces on the bottom for stick on rubber feet, we used 6mm diameter dome shaped self adhesive pads.
