The Robo R1+ is an FDM compact 3D printer characterized by wide material and software compatibility. Indeed, this versatile device can print with more than 30 different filaments and supports almost any open-source 3D slicing program. Produced by Robo 3D, the machine ships fully assembled and will be ready to print right out of the box. It is based on an open-source system and can be easily upgraded.
Robo R1+ offers a good price/performance ratio and is suitable for almost any user, from educators to designers, innovators, and beginners. It features a large print area of 254 x 229 x 203 mm, giving you the possibility to print small-to-medium parts in one piece. The all-metal hotend provides high material flexibility, while the automatic bed leveling and calibration minimizes time-consuming manual interventions. It prints fast delivering accurate results. Sizeable and user-friendly, Robo R+1 is simple to use and highly adaptable. Read the review to find out what it is capable of doing.
One user 3D printed a rifle from the Destiny video game. Look at the picture. You can barely see its layers, can you?
Another user created a tailor-made Lord Drakkon’s shield for his cosplay costume. Big and mighty, the model has been printed in parts that perfectly spliced together.

The Robo R1+ comes with a 0.4 mm easy-replaceable nozzle, offering you the best balance between speed and detail. This architectural model is a good example.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, allowing for a simple yet lightweight design.
The open-source nature alongside the improved filament feeding system allows for wide material compatibility. No wonder that the Robo R1+ can print with more than 30 types of filaments, including PLA, ABS, Aromatic PLA, Glow in the dark PLA, Wood PLA, PET-G, Nylons, Polycarbonate, 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, Carbon Fiber Nylon, Conductive PLA, Magnetic Iron, HIPS, PVA, and more.
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. It cools the model down reducing warping and stringing issues.
Unlike many FDM printers, the Robo R1+ has a heated print bed and closed print chamber. Thus, it is capable of printing with ABS-type and temperature-sensitive materials granting high reliability and reproducibility.
The Robo R1+ prints with any type of standard 1.75 mm filament.
The build area of 10 x 9 x 8 inches (254 x 229 x 203 mm) lets you print just about anything in one go. In case you need to print larger models, just split them into parts and then assemble them using glue or acetone.

The printer can be operated via a USB-tethered computer or it can work as a standalone device thanks to the integrated SD port.
3D models can be printed from a computer via USB cable or via an SD card.
The printer is compatible with almost any commercial or open-source software. The company recommends installing the free MatterControl software, which allows slicing with 3 engines. The software is available for Apple iOS and macOS, Windows, and Linux.
