RoBo 3D Printer

RoBo 3D Printer

Postby AlexNoir » Thu Mar 28, 2013 4:48 pm

Hello!

I was looking around in the net and found this: http://www.robo3dprinter.com/

It's probably a nice concurence for Makerbot Replicator, but I can't find many results in the net. Do somebody else heard about them? Or what do you think about it?

Greetings,

alex

... it's a redesigned Mendel90 derivat - seems there are many new companies popping out selling kits or assembled RepRap-clones :?

But I would ask more or less myself, if this development will help to reduce the price OR/and higher the resolution...

... the best resolution achievable with the DIY-FDM-printers is around 0.05mm layer height and 0.3mm filament width with a nozzle hole of 0.25mm diameter.

It's not the 'brand' what's defining the accuracy/resolution, but more the experience of the operator.

if you want higher accuracy for a lower price, then you should look for the DIY-DLP-UV-printers - with the slavaged Casio-beamers (have some for 35€ to 45€) and a cheap linear axe the cost of the printer is something below 100€ ... and the resolution is actually around 10 microns in XY and layer height :wink:

Tnx for this answer.

But how you maybe saw in the other Topic: I've nothing against to pay 1000 or 2000$ if the result is good. I prefer a finished "apparatus", where is a fixed result guaranteed. I need a big building volume as possible with a resolution high as possible. The time for printing doesn't that matter - I need the good result :D - In this case - don't you think, that all these different companies promote development that comes as benefit?

... sure, they all together will develop quality and reliability with time -- and a common price-level of around 2k€ :roll:

My personal target is slightly different -- even better accuracy (sub-microns), much higher building speeds, and totally free material selection.

And because this is not to be expected with the common developing pace in the next 5 years to be realized, I'm DIY-ing this on my own :wink:

We are going to continue to respect licenses and continue to contribute to the open technology of 3D printing, some of which we initiated. We don’t want to abuse the goodwill and support of our community. We love what we do, we love sharing, and we love what our community creates. I believe strongly that businesses that share will be the winners of tomorrow and I don’t think that’s a secret. Even companies like Google and IBM are embracing open source and finding new ways to share these days.

I’m looking forward to having conversations with folks at the Open Hardware Summit to talk about how MakerBot can share as much as possible, support it’s 150 employees with jobs, make awesome hardware, and be sustainable. Will we have to experiment to make this happen? Yes, and it’s going to take a lot of collaboration, cooperation, and understanding.

I wish there were more examples of large, successful open hardware companies. From a business perspective, we’ve been absurdly open, more open than any other business I know. There are no models or companies that I know of that have more than 150 employees that are more open. (Would love to be wrong, but I don’t think I am.) We are experimenting so that we can be as open as possible and still have a business at the end of the day. Will we be successful? I hope so, but even if we are not, everyone will find out that either being as open as possible is a good thing for business or that nobody should do it, or something in between. I personally hope that we succeed, not just because I love what people make with MakerBots and I love the employees that make these machines but because I believe that MakerBot as a business can create a new model for businesses to learn from. I don’t plan on letting the vulnerabilities of being open hardware destroy what we’ve created.

The most successful open source hardware businesses that I know are businesses that create educational projects. Adafruit, Evil Mad Science, and Sparkfun are all doing awesome. Companies like Chumby and OpenMoko didn’t make it, despite having really smart folks involved. A lot of hardware projects on Kickstarter are open source, but I haven’t seen any scale up yet. Again, I would welcome any examples of large open source hardware companies here. There is something very powerful here to observe. Hardware companies that make projects are the most successful at being open source.

We are going to continue to contribute to projects that we’ve started and to other open source projects. I’ve been a fanboy of EFF and FSF for long enough to respect licenses. I was a teacher for many years and know that when you share with a respectful community, everyone in that community wins.

We are actively working on a developer program to create cutting edge emerging stuff. We look forward to finding ways of creating win/win situations with developers and companies. Thankfully, not everyone is out to get a free lunch, both Ultimaker and many RepRap projects have contributed to the technology and show that we can work together and stand on each other’s shoulders.

This isn’t the first change we’ve made to become more of a professional business, and it won’t be our last.
