Order the Robox RBX01 3D Printer from Kitronik and get 3 reels of ABS filament. You will get at least 2 different colours and the 3rd reel is the one supplied with the printer (this colour may be a duplicate).

This great value pack saving you a massive £47.50! (when compared to buying items separately) is a fantastic way to get started with 3D printing.

The CEL Robox is a desktop 3D printer which marks a new level of innovation in 3D printer development. The Robox 3D printer has all the features that you would expect from an extrusion-type 3D printer, with the addition of a number of unique features. For this reason we think that the Robox 3D printer is the ideal choice for any education or hobby 3D printer user.

Featuring a dual-nozzle system to ensure print speeds up to 300% faster than the closest competitors, the Robox printer also allows adjustment of the individual nozzles temperature as well as the depth of fill, providing users with complete control of every stage of the printing process and quality.

Compatible with PC, Mac OSX, and Linux, included is the Automaker program designed specifically for Robox.

The Robox contains the worlds first Dual-Pinch Wheel Extrusion System, resulting in consistent extruder operation and high quality resolution. A worm and wheel gearbox powers two indexed contra-rotating feed wheels.

Another first achieved on the Robox is the ability to pause and resume prints, so if anything goes wrong mid-process, users can rectify issues without losing the print.

A 3D printer is a big investment and one that should serve you well over an extended period of time. CEL, the manufacturers of the Robox printer are so confident in the design of their product that they offer a 2 year warranty as standard.

How Does the Printer Work?

The Robox is an extrusion style 3D printer. It works by forcing the print material, referred to as 'filament', through a heated nozzle. The filament then melts (this process is very similar to the way a glue gun melts a glue stick).

The heated filament is deposited in layers that cool and harden. These layers build up on top of each other to produce the final 3D object.

The size of the layers can be adjusted depending on the required print quality. Larger layers are used on lower quality prints and smaller layers are used on the best quality prints. The Robox can achieve a print layer resolution of an incredible 20 microns!

Changing the print quality can have a major impact on the overall print time. These print times can easily become many hours, so you should take care when deciding on the quality you need for a particular object.

 

 

Automaker Print Software.

Want to take a look at the Automaker software? Download it for free at www.cel-robox.com/downloads/.

AutoMaker is the software used to layout your models, view the status of Robox, and adjust the settings used during a print or other operations.

Without a Robox attached there is limited functionality, allowing you to load a .stl or .obj file and manipulate it.

Connect a Robox to allow printing in Draft, Normal, Fine or Custom within 3 very simple steps.

 

AutoMaker has been designed to make 3D printing easier, allowing you to concentrate on designing parts to print and not needing to fiddle with the print settings to try to get a result. The default settings are tried and tested using the Robox filament and allow even a complete novice user to get a repeatable and consistent result every time. Advanced users have all the control required to satisfy even the most complex print jobs and are able to easily share their custom profiles with all of us.

Auto material detection.

Robox filament is automatically detected and displayed in the software (see image below).

 

Control multiple Robox 3D printers from one computer!

If you have more than one Robox printer they can all be controlled from one PC. The Automaker software and Robox printer use a simple colour coding system to show clearly which printer is printing which design.

Robot Buggy Part 1 An Introduction
This fun learning resource has been put together to provide teachers with an all in one design and technology challenge that you can set for your students over the course of a term or a year. The resource includes a number of different design and technology aspects; electronics, mechanical assembly, 2D and 3D design, using a laser cutter, using a 3D printer and coding and testing. There are also alternative production methods highlighted in the individual resources.
Coding With The PXT Editor
Robot Buggy Part 6 Coding With The PXT Editor
Martin Woolley explains how he wrote the Robot Buggy code using the Microsoft PXT Editor for the BBC micro:bit. Includes a link to the completed code. Martin not only wrote the code that we use for the remote controlled buggies, he also designed the Bluetooth profile for the BBC micro:bit and wrote and released the micro:bit Blue App, which we used to control the buggys.
The Self Righting Flag
Robot Buggy Part 5 The Self Righting Flag
The last part of our physical design challenge was to design a flag for a capture the flag style game. As with most of the design challenges that this project presented, we had some ideas and discarded the difficult and impractical until we were left with a simple but effective solution.
The 3D Printed Add-Ons
Robot Buggy Part 4 The 3D Printed Add-Ons
When designing the 3D printed add-ons we had two main aims; that they maintained our Robot Wars theme and that they could be printed easily. Our additional goals were to create two team colour schemes and that each buggy had it's own personality.
Creating The Perspex Top Plate
Robot Buggy Part 3 Creating The Perspex Top Plate
We looked at a few different ways of achieving our Robot Wars inspired buggy but quickly settled on keeping the buggy completely intact and cutting a top plate from a perspex sheet. We wanted it to be functional, aesthetically pleasing and also easy to produce. We had six buggies to design and build and only a few days to get them done.
Remote Control Via Bluetooth
Robot Buggy Part 7 Remote Control Via Bluetooth
Bluetooth is the technology that makes the remote control aspect of this project possible, fortunately, the BBC micro:bit comes with Bluetooth functionality as standard. Martin Woolley explains how to pair your Android device with the BBC micro:bit and how to use is micro:bit Blue App to control the Robot Buggy.

Robot Buggy Part 2 The Line Following Buggy
The line following buggy for the BBC micro:bit is a great kit for students to build as it combines several elements of design and technology; electronics, mechanical assembly and coding and it is this buggy that the Robot Buggies are built upon. The kit has relatively few parts and is simple to build, making it a suitable option as a classroom activity.

Question:

Can I print a 3d printer on it?

Answers:

  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Tuesday, 10 March 2015

    Although it is technically possible to print a 3D printer as is the case with something like the rep-rap, this is limited to printing things like rod connectors, however the electronics, motors, belts and etc would need to be purchased as these couldn’t be printed. You would need to get hold of the CAD files to print the parts from something like my mini factory if they do indeed exist. So technically yes you could print some 3D printer parts, but I wouldn’t recommend trying as a self-assembled 3D printer is incredibly difficult to get set-up and aligned and working correctly.
