Unique Printer Design
This Robo 3D R1 plus review has revealed the detailed printer design brought by Robo. It comes with unique design completed with easy to use infrastructure and large print. Every version of this printer is well designed and built with a number of improvements. The ROBO 3D R1 Plus 3d Printer is definitely the most affordable. It has covered-bridge shape added with protective wires when the print’s head is moving forth and back. You may want to prepare extra space as the printer comes with large model unlike other printers. This size may be a bit larger than most printers but it is still easy to carry round the house.
3D Printing Software
With its 3D printing software, Robo 3D printer allows you to print any objects by uploading the objects that you have made in CAD program. Or, you can print them quickly once you have downloaded the files. Of course, each print result is in high quality that you can be proud of.
Work With Various Filaments
Here comes the good news. ROBO 3D R1 Plus 3d Printer is compatible with various filaments including PLA and ABS. It can even handle HIPS filament and also laywood. In every print, the versatility is exceptional. That’s because the printer has particular heated glass print bed which is very useful to prevent warping. This way, the platform will allow the best adhesion. This printer can accommodate universal and proprietary filament cartridges thanks to filament cartridge holder that is perched on the back.
Its resolution is not something to be questioned thanks to 100 microns that deliver stunning resolution. Delivering such resolution on any filaments is easy for this printer especially because ROBO 3D R1 Plus 3d Printer is equipped with heatbed in 10 x 10 inches. This is a special part that delivers function to keep the printer base warm while the printer prints the top filament. This way, the case can be prevented from cracking or warping. But, if you want to have faster printing, easily adjust the setting and resolution. Lower resolution allows faster printing.
Accessories and Connectivity
Good quality printer hasn’t been made perfect without good connectivity options. Luckily, Robo printer comes with microSD card. So, you can put aside your computer and print directly from SD card. What an easy way to print, right?
As for the accessories, this printer offers a number of essential software. The MatterControl for instance, is software to optimize the resize the 3D models that will be printed. There is also more powerful software known as AutoDesk. Fortunately, in your initial purchase, you will get USB cord and maintenance toll as well. This can save you some money.
Lack of onboard screen doesn’t make this printer less valuable than other printers. It still has excellent performance and a number of useful features for quality 3D print. Even more, you will not pay too much money for filament replacements as they are affordable. Count on the software as well even if you are a beginner because it is very easy to use. And its calibrations aren’t something you have to worry about.
Now, it’s the turn to revealing the drawbacks. Start with the cords which are not safely secured so you have to apply loose zip tie to manage this problem. Another drawback is its noise which tends to be quite loud and disturbing. The speed is not too exceptional as well although this is actually a typical issue on most 3D printers. So, like it or not, you have to live with it.
