How did you come up with the idea for this product?
We needed a 3D printer for a project back in college in 2012, so we built our own from scratch. 5 years later, 20,000+ customers, 4500+ cities, and 100+ countries, we have seen our product being used by some incredible people. When we designed these new machines, we listened to our customers, assembled a wish list of features, and built two new amazing 3D printers for this industry.
What makes your product special?
We have built an incredibly easy to use, smart, affordable, personal 3D printer that will empower our users to create better prototypes, models, figurines, replacement parts, or everyday items to help them conquer any task at hand.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The most incredible part of this experience aside from gaining a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience is the fact that we have a product that goes into the hands of amazing users all over the world and in return, we first hand get to hear the incredible stories of how they use their Robo 3D printer. It’s extremely motivating, empowering, and gives us so much pride. Our mission is to keep creating powerful 3D tools so you can do more. When you keep on creating, the world becomes a better place.

It was a clogged hotend on the Monoprice Mini and subsequent failure to get a E3D v6 hotend replacement working that prompted me to look at replacing with a more reliable printer. I knew I really hated print beds that move back and forth on the Y axis, and that I preferred a build platform that could be raised and lowered by a lead screw if it's going to move at all.
Some of the things that attracted me to the C2:
* A removable print bed
* Automatic bed leveling (9 points, using an IR sensor)
* Layers as thin as 20 microns
* Built on open hardware (Arduino, Raspberry Pi)
* Has an Octoprint interface built in, complete with on-board slicing
* Hotend is easy to remove, which makes cleaning out jams especially simple
* Excellent support by all accounts (and my experience tracks this)
* Direct drive extruder, which in theory means the C2 should be able to handle flex filament
* An ability to handle a wide variety of filament types, providing you can get said filament to stick to an unheated print bed
* In reality, 60 microns is about as small a layer height as I'd want to go. Quality can be tricky at smaller values.
* In practice, I have so far been unable to get flex filament to print. It's as if the extruder puts some torsion on the filament and starts to twist it. So far, I've tried MakerFlex and various NinjaFlex products (including their Semiflex). At some point, I should try PolyFlex.
* Robo's carbon fiber infused PLA prints very well on this printer, and gives great results. I printed a small iris box using CF PLA, and it blew away several coworkers.
* The Cura slicer built into the onboard Octoprint works very well. Just upload an STL file to the printer and it will ask if you want to slice, and if you want to print immediately after. Just be advised that printing this way will automatically generate a raft, and the raft will stick a little too well to your object. In fact, the raft is welded on so tightly that you may need a razor or knife to separate the object.
* The Cura for Robo supplied offers a few more options than the slicer you get through Octoprint. This will serve the needs of many users.
* I love Simplify3D, and there's an included Robo C2 profile in the software that provides a good jumping off point. You can't actually print over USB, but you can generate gcode and upload it to the Robo C2 via Octoprint's web interface. The new supports and rafts in S3D release trivially from the object, so this is my go-to software when I need to do custom supports or rafts.
* I have had a couple small technical issues which Robo3D were more than happy to help with. So far, every experience has left me satisfied.
* I discovered that it's a really bad idea to shut off the master power switch without first doing a proper shutdown. Doing this can cause boot failures which may or may not be recoverable, for example. My Robo C2 got into an unrecoverable state which necessitated me requesting a new SD card and some nylon stand-offs for the Raspberry Pi board. In the interest of abundant caution, I replaced the Raspberry Pi board with one I picked up at my local electronics store.
* There are 2 heat sinks on the RasPi board that ships in the C2. The chip on the bottom of the board (SDRAM) doesn't have one, and I have read this chip can get very hot under load. I wound up slapping copper heatsinks on all 3 chips on the replacement RasPi.
* If the system freezes (e.g., the LCD touchscreen becomes unresponsive to user input and does not update), you should still avoid using the master power switch to reset. Instead, plug a USB keyboard into one of the USB A ports on the C2 and try giving a 3 fingered salute (either Ctrl-Alt-Del, or Ctrl-Alt-Backspace which kills any X server, assuming Octoprint has been set up to render to the LCD using X11).
* Plugging a webcam into the rear USB port of the C2 lets you enable live viewing and timelapse recording. Any webcam known to work with OctoPi should work here.
* Robo3D is working on an Android app for this printer, something similar to their iOS app, but I found something that works great and is available right now: Printoid. I purchased Printoid Premium and use it with my cell phone and tablet to monitor the printer, watch the live video stream, etc. Best $7 I ever spent.
* The printer is shipped in very robust packaging. Unfortunately, the 608 bearing that holds the top end of the Z lead screw popped out of its holder during shipping, so a little piece of tape to retain that bearing would probably be a good idea. Not a huge deal.
* The product description clearly said that the Robo C2 is an Amazon Alexa enabled device. Unfortunately, that verbiage has disappeared from the product page on Amazon (and I believe also on Robo's website). I have not been able to track down the "My Robo" Alexa skill. You can still use Google to search for the project's github page, but without the Alexa skill being generally available, the Octoprint support for this is kind of useless.
* Similarly, all mention of dual extrusion upgrades for the R2 (the big brother of the C2) have disappeared. This worries me, as I was planning on getting an R2 next year.
* Fortunately, the open nature of the hardware insulates me from concerns about any particular hardware vendor.
I bought this product at a sale price through Amazon , which made it a no-brainer decision for me to buy it. I would probably have still paid full price for it, though. This printer, despite its few quirks, is very reliable and produces high quality output. After the first couple days of ownership, I was sold; this is the way it should be!
UPDATE: So I got my C2 delivered today. Everything is going well. I was set up in under five minutes and now I'm doing my first print with it. And the best part, unless you are SUPER close to it, it is whisper quiet.
