Robo C2 is a budget desktop FDM 3D printer. It's capable of printing with polylactide (PLA) and other materials that don’t require heating bed. The printer is controlled via an LCD touchscreen or the Robo App mobile application. The thickness of the applied layer is set in the range of 20-300 microns. The print speed reaches 16 mm ³ / s, and the travel speed is 250 mm / s. The extruder is equipped with a nozzle of 0.4 mm in diameter, the platform is calibrated in automatic mode.
You can prepare 3D models with the Robo App or the Cura slicer. In addition to the wireless interface, the printer is equipped with a USB port.
The Robo C2 has been successfully used in prototyping and small-scale manufacturing. For example, look at this stylish, balancing wine bottle holder designed by the @thehalfnerd.

The Robo C2 prints at 20 microns. It has a 0.4 mm nozzle, which gives you the best balance between speed and detail. For example, look at this White House model. The model is smooth and has fine details.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Robo C2 can print with PLA, Aromatic PLA, Glow-in-the-dark PLA, Wood PLA, PET-G, Nylons, Flexible TPE, Flexible TPU, Thermo Temp Color Changing PLA, Bronze-filled PLA, Copper-Filled PLA, Brass-Filled PLA, Glass Filled PLA, Stainless-Steel Filled PLA, Iron-Filled PLA, Carbon Fiber PLA, Conductive PLA, Magnetic Iron, HIPS, PVA and other materials.
Take a look at the model of Thanos from the Avengers movie, printed with a black PLA material. One of the reasons why it looks so great is Robo’s powerful fan.

The Robo C2 prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of 5 x 5 x 6 inches (127 x 127 x 152.4 mm) is more suitable for small-scale prints. Otherwise, print a model in parts and then assemble it together, as in the picture below.
The printer is controlled via the built-in LCD interface.
3D models can be printed via standalone 3D printing from USB stick or Wi-Fi printing from the app.
The printer is compatible with customized versions of Cura, MatterControl, and RoboPrint software and works with 3D models in STL format. The software is available for Apple iOS and MacOS, Windows, Linux.
Robo C2 is available in white color.
The printer dimensions are (330.2 x 463.55 x 323.85 mm. It weighs 21 lb (9.5 kg). The spool holder is mounted on the back of the printer.
The price of the Robo C2 is $799.99, which is reasonable considering its functionality.
