In just a week, the new Robox 3D printer and micro-manufacturing platform, that launched on Kickstarter earlier this month, has past its pledge goal of £100,000 with 21 days still remaining in the campaign.
The innovative Robox 3D printer and micro-manufacturing platform has been designed by CEL based in the UK and has been created to provide users with a miniature manufacturing platform offfering interchangeable heads. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Robox 3D printer project and see it in action.
Currently the Robox system comes fitted with a Robox 3D Printer head but the team hope to use extra funds raised by their Kickstarter campaign to created addition tooling heads, offering other methods of production which are still yet to be decided, such as CNC milling or laser cutting. The CEL team explains a little more about their Robox 3D printer and micro-manufacturing platform:
“From the outset of this project, the intention has always been to demystify 3D printing and make it usable by everyone. We wanted to produce the most reliable, stylish and easiest-to-use 3D printing solution available. What we’ve done is more than that; with the HeadLock™ system, Robox can operate with different heads, which means different tools that can perform a whole range of new functions from stylus cutting to paste deposition, and coming soon, 3D scanning. The possibilities are endless.
We have future-proofed the platform so that it is ready to take immediate advantage of new additive and subtractive manufacturing processes as we develop them, making the Robox platform not only the most accessible 3D printer but a complete micro-manufacturing system. We’ve designed the whole product from the ground up; the frame, electronics, software and firmware are all tuned to ensure that all the innovation we’ve added works seamlessly to give you the best possible user experience.”
