About CEL Robox USA
CEL have been working on the brand new desktop 3D printer Robox since 2012, and the world’s most accessible, modular, easy-to-use additive manufacturing system is now available to everyone.
Robox has topped the Plug and play category at joint number 1 in 3D Hubs 2016 printer guide scoring a rating of 9.0 out of 10!
Robox is the future of micro-manufacturing; with its HeadLock™ system, Robox operate with different heads. Our dual-material printing head that will allow users to print in two different materials simultaneously for the first time
Users will have the opportunity to upgrade their Robox to become a dual material printer, stylus cutter, milling head.
Users will also benefit in the long term from continuous updates in our own Automaker™ software, which means print speed and quality, as well as usability of the product will continuously improve over time.
During the past 12-18 months, the amount of press coverage we have had worldwide has been astonishing, and we’ve received acclaim from the likes of the BBC, USA Today, Yahoo! and Mail Online. This has led to an overwhelming amount of expectation about the capabilities of Robox, and so we have inevitably taken our time to make sure the mass production units could fulfil all hope and anticipation.
Why Our Project Matters
There are many people that believe 3D printing is not ready for the mass-consumer market and that it is just too difficult to use. We’ve set out to solve this problem by designing out all of the current problems with domestic 3D printers from the ground up. Due to the high price of similar machines, we believe the technology has not yet reached the hands of those that matter – the small start-ups, artists, architects, hackers/makers and especially students and children. We’ve attempted to make Robox® accessible to all by simplifying the process of printing to a few clicks and making the product safe for the whole family to use.
This technology has the potential to disrupt traditional manufacturing processes and even the way in which products are bought and sold. It will enable people to bring manufacturing back to their local economies and reduce reliance on imports – shipping only raw materials, not finished products.
Many governments in the world prioritised coding and 3D printing in its proposed reforms to the education curriculum. A focus on technology-related skills and in particular engineering will be among the priorities for primary and secondary school children, with secondary school-aged children getting new design and technology lessons which include learning to use 3D printers. The design and technology syllabus has also been overhauled to teach children from the age of five how to design, plan, build (and evaluate) a product from having an idea all the way through to the finished item.
There is also the potential of the technology in developing economies, where communities will be enabled to produce appropriate technology for their environment using locally available resources – think printing a water turbine from recycled plastic. We want Robox® to be part of this revolution – bringing micro-manufacturing to everyone.
