“It’s been an all hands-on deck, around the clock effort since we decided to move forward with the very idea of a flagship 3D printer,” said Ryan Legudi, Managing Director at Robo. “And we’ve arrived with a finished product we’re immensely proud of — fully confident that makers and professional users from various backgrounds and skillsets have the machine necessary to enjoy a world-class 3D printing experience, whose feature set and functionality are aimed to redefine the entire industry.”
The release of the Robo R2 to retail channels will build on the strong demand and enquiry that the Company has received from existing and new customers, both in the USA as well in over 20 international countries.
In addition, following its successful attendance in June at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) in San Antonio attended by nearly a combined 50,000 people, Robo continues to progress new customer accounts in the education segment, a segment that is estimated to spend around US$8 billion per annum of education technology products.
Robo R2 production exceeds expectations
Robo 3D has completed its initial production run at Foxconn of the Robo R2 in May this year, which was dedicated solely to its pre-order customers. Robo is pleased to advise that all pre-orders have been delivered to these customers.
The company is pleased that the manufacturing quality and production throughput from this initial production run exceeded its expectations, and is looking forward to ramping up production volume to meet anticipated demand for the flagship R2 printer
Robo wins coveted design award
Robo has recently accepted a Good Design Award within the Product Design category for its newest smart 3D printers with Wi-Fi: the Robo C2 and the high-performance Robo R2.
Robo successfully endured the extensive evaluation process—one that involved more than 35 Australian and international design experts judging numerous innovative entries from all over the world—to finally beat out the competition and earn the prestigious accolade after receiving a Good Design Selection earlier this year for both machines.
“These products tick every box for design excellence,” the awards jury noted in their review. “The units are very well designed and constructed with uncomplicated design language that gives them a unique and highly desirable form. The units were easy to operate and do what they were designed to.”
Winners were announced on June 8 at the Australian Good Design Awards Ceremony during the annual Good Design Festival at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Sydney. Considered Australia’s highest honor for design innovation since 1958, the event celebrates the best new products and services within the Australian market, with a focus on excellence in architectural, digital and communication design.
