ROBO 3D R1 Plus Fully Assembled 3D Printer Review

ROBO 3D R1 Plus Fully Assembled 3D Printer Review – A 3D printer that matches the budget of a person is usually smaller in size, provide only 1 filament choice as well as need chained printing. On the other hand, this product is one of the exceptional printers that proposes larger print size (either ABS or PLA printing) and can also print through a micro SD/memory card or a secured connection.

The ROBO3D printer is a best economical 3D printer that is available in the market currently.It also has features like easy-to-use design, incredible software and economical filament alternatives. In addition, The all-metal hot end (the part that heats the filament) allows users to print with a wide variety of filament materials. And a self-leveling, heated print bed is not something you can always expect on 3D printers in this price range.

Specifications of ROBO 3D R1 plus Fully Assembled 3D PrinterROBO 3D R1 Plus Fully Assembled 3D Printer

Below are some basics or specifications of this robo 3D printer:

  • The ROBO3D R1 Plus has external measurements of 18.25 inches (Height) x 22 inches (Width) x 15 inches (Depth).
  • It total weighs around 26 pounds which make it easy to move from one place to another.
  • It’s all-out size measurements are 720 cubic inches which are dispersed as proportions of 8 inches (Height), 9 inches (Width), and 10 inches (Depth).
  • this 3D Printer can do printing with the greatest resolution of 100 microns by using.STL and.OBJ files.
  • It can do 3D printing in the diversity of 1.75-millimeter filaments that forcefully come out through the printer’s 0.4-millimeter jet.

Advantages of ROBO 3D R1 plus Fully Assembled 3D Printer

There are numerous advantages of this 3D printer. But, below are some of them which make it exceptional from other printers available in the market:

  • Dissimilar Filament Compatibility

The most important advantage of ROBO3D R1 Plus is that the user can easily print his/her designs in a diversity of dissimilar filaments. Along with the ordinary ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) and PLA (Polylactic Acid) kinds, the user of this 3d printer can also try-out with T-Glass, HIPS and a range of other resources.

  • Heated manufactured Plate

The heated manufactured plates benefit the user in facilitating filament stand by to the 3D printing surface. It also creates uniform temperature surroundings for the 3d prints. which means that the user of the device can have extra effective prints with certain more fastidious filaments. It also comprises of a decrease in distorting owing to the irregular cooling.

  • Quality/Reliability

It is possible to get very high quality prints from the Robo 3D R1 Plus because of the heated bed, all-metal hot end, improved linear control and 0.1 mm minimum layer thickness,

It is mostly reliable. A variety of issues have been reported, but none that show a pattern or particular area of concern.

  • Print Size

The print size of this ROBO 3D R1 plus Fully Assembled 3D Printer is much larger than average print size for units in this price range.

Disadvantages of ROBO 3D R1 plus Fully Assembled 3D Printer

Besides the above advantages of ROBO 3D R1 plus Fully Assembled 3D Printer, there are some disadvantages also that are linked to it, like:

  • Plastic made external construction

It is a big disadvantage for this 3D printer that its external part is made up of plastic. So, the user needs to be very careful while using this 3D printer if he wants to use it regularly or frequently. If attentiveness of the user is not there, then it may lead to the wear and tear of the printer. The printers that are available in the market are mostly metal made, so this problem does not arise with them.

  • Extrusion Blockages

One more important disadvantage of this 3D printer is that the user can easily stick to the extrusion blockages during the 3D printing process. If the filament is not going through the printer’s jet easily, then it will be difficult to complete the printing task.Unluckily, this is a very common problem that comes with this printer. If this type of situation takes place while doing printing, the user might have to change the extrusion jet unanimously. Changing nozzle or jet is not an easy task for a new beginner, so the user needs to be alert.

  • A late response of the customer cares services

When the user of the printer confronted any unforeseen problems, then the only thing which can save from this is the customer care service of the product. But, with this 3D printer, if a problem arises, then the person might have to wait for the longer period as the team gives a very late response to their clients as compared to the expected time.

What’s in the Box

The Robo 3D says they ship their R1 Plus fully assembled and calibrated, ready to use out of the box. It is good practice to make sure everything is calibrated on any printer before hitting the print button.

The R1 Plus includes with 300G of blue PLA, 20 pre-installed models to test the printer out with, a 6 month part replacement warranty, 24/7 customer service,  micro USB and micro SD card, Robo3D software, and surprisingly, 1 free year subscription to Autodesk Fusion 360.

Customer Reviews

Pen Name

“I’ve used this product to print out prototype parts quickly and effectively. In my honest opinion, this is one of the best value 3D printers that you can buy. It has a big print volume, heated bed, and auto-leveling. The customer service I have received has been amazing as well.”

SirChristopher2

“Thank you for a great product and even greater support. I was looking for as close to plug and play 3D printing as possible and the Robo R1+ delivered. The US-based, 24-hour, English as a first language customer support was a big factor in my decision to go with your product. So far, ZERO misprints and only minor, easy to fix, problems.”

PassionZephyr

“This is my first 3D printer, I’ve had it for a few months now and love this Robo. Just keep in mind, with all 3D printers, there is a learning curve. I had issues with bed adhesion, layers not binding, and general auto-leveling problems. After I learned more about the printing process and asked questions on the Robo forum, I was in a much better place.

3D printers are very much tools, not toys. I do a fair bit of 3D modeling and have been using this to bring the models to life and to repair things around the house. After dedicating some time learning how to use it as a tool, it’s been reliable and accurate.”

Final Verdict

Overall, the ROBO3D R1 Plus is a reasonable 3D printer that offers larger print size. A person who is looking for a budgeted profitable choice printer must go for this 3D printer. The R1 is a low-cost, open source and easy to use a 3D printer.  It doesn’t boast the best quality we’ve seen but can print multiple filaments, offers versatile software and large print area.
