The Robo R1+ is a compact and versatile machine that works with a variety of materials. Its versatility lies in its ability to be used with almost any open-source software, a flexible range of materials, a variety of resolution settings, and most current operating systems.
It’s a sizeable and moderately priced printer, which is worth looking into if you’re looking for something in below $1,000 price range. The printer is user-friendly as it is sold fully assembled and features a large, self-leveling print bed.
As an example of what this machine is capable of, here’s a picture of a rifle model from the Destiny game. The parts were built with Robo R1+.
Another example of the printer’s performance is the printed shield of Lord Drakkon cosplay costume.

The Robo R1+ has a 0.4 mm nozzle, offering you the best balance between speed and detail. A designer printed this 3D house model with Robo R1+.
Quite detailed, isn’t it?
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, allowing for a simpler design.
Robo R1+ can print with 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 other materials.
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. It cools the model down, taking care of such issues as warping and stringing.
Take another look at the rifle we already showed you earlier. It was built from the 3D printed parts. Its maker used the Hatchbox PLA material.
Unlike many FDM printers, the Robo R1+ has a heated print bed and closed print chamber, that allow for printing with ABS-type materials.
The Robo R1+ prints with 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. If the printing area is not enough to print a model in a single go, print it by parts and glue them together afterwards.
For example, see this model of the Sukhoi Su-34, a supersonic strike aircraft. It was created using 3D printing and fiberglass molding. Most important of all, the final model will be even taller.

The printer is controlled via PC.
3D models can be printed from computer via an SD card.
The printer is compatible with Cura, MatterControl, and RoboPrint software and works with 3D models in .STL, .OBJ formats. The software is available for Apple iOS and MacOS, Windows, Linux.
For some items package content may change. In case of any questions, please get in touch.
Robo R1+ is available in white color.
The printer dimensions are 17.1 x 18.1 x 15.1 inches (434 x 460 x 384 mm). It weighs 21 lb (9.5 kg). The spool holder is mounted on top of the printer.
The price of the Robo R1+ is $499.99, which is reasonable considering its functionality.
