3D printing was one of the surprises of #CES years past. We’ve all heard of 3D printing from news reports and various articles. Although the industry had exploded within the last few years, until recently, 3D technology has been still at the realm of science fiction with price tags out of the reach of consumers. Although there are a multitude of companies who hope to capture the heart of the people, many of them lose consumers at their wallets. Bottom line is little headway has been made with mainstream consumers due to the cost and the ease of use.
At the #Showstoppers at #CES2016, Southern California based ROBO 3D hoped to change the industry trend with one of their major products announcements The ROBO 3D R2 Mini is an entry level affordable 3D printer that will help novice 3D consumers get their feet wet.
With a cost of under $1,000 and small enough to fit on your kitchen counter, the ROBO 3D R2 Mini is step in the right direction for the 3D market. The ROBO 3D R2 Mini‘s size makes it ideal for the home office, work bench or even kitchen.
As far as usability goes the ROBO 3D Mobile software allows you to connect to this mini-dynamo from your Smart phone or Tablet and bring your smaller 3D creations to life.
I love that ROBO 3D has taken great steps in order to address typical pet peeves with 3D technology. Will it result in consumers taking a leap into the 3D market ? Only time will tell.
