Très bonne imprimante plug&play, un peu bruyante côté ventilation, bonne précisons, il est possible d'utiliser des filaments externe grâce à la mise à jour régulière du logiciel, peut-être paramètrer selon les besoins, une fois le fichier transférer sur l'imprimante, elle peut se déconnecter de l'ordinateur pour un fonctionnement autonome, facile à transporter pour des présentations externes grâce au sac fourni. Les modifications pour double filament  couleurs ou matière est un atout agréable proposé par le fabriquant. Par exemple des supports qui se diluent dans l'eau ou autre.

Exellent Printer

Excellent printer compact design and easy to use. Support from CEL is second to none and easy to contact with a lot of Q/A available online. Regular software & firmware updates, models are very good with little or no clean up. I am very satisfied with this printer and would recommend it to anyone thinking of purchasing one, the price is good to.

Robox (Kickstarter Edition)

I have been very happy with this printer. There were some "teething" issues with the first Kickstarters, but CEL's support has been very good. I did the dual material upgrade myself and it went flawlessly!.

Product build quality is VERY good and support (both from the company and the user community) is Excellent.

Easiest to use 3D printer on the market

I run a hub and own a few 3D printers from a number of well known and less well known manufacturers. My five Robox 3D printers are by far the easiest to use and certainly the best looking. Results with PETG filament in particular are the best I've seen.

Small with bad parts cooling

It is very "plug and print" compared to other 3d printers, and it usually produces good prints, but I would not recommend it. It is too small (in the z axis especially), the print parts cooling sucks, the Automaker software feels restricting to use, it is slow, and it is noisy.

I'm a very newbie but I'm liking my CEL

I'm only starting to print and am quite delighted with my results. I brought the RBX01 second hand with maybe one use for a very reduced price. In my limited experience printing 3d I've been able to print various objects that I have downloaded fairly well. I'm still experiencing growing pains but the simplicity of this printer does compensate.

I've not had to use anything to assure that my model pieces did not stick to the surface of the heated bed, and I printed some very small pieces indeed. 

I started out slow since I hadn't immediately found the instructions included on a usb card. Once I went through the calibration routines I found that it was quite simple to print a model. The software that runs this printer is downloadable from the CEL website and is Linux friendly.

I'm very happy with my purchase and hope to be using it for several years.

Cheap and cheerful (by comparison)

Software and smart reels makes it incredibly easy to use, track and maintain. Any issues get attention/resolution quickly by customer support.

Mixed feeling but impressed overall

I've had my CEL Robox for a few years now and although I have had a number of different issues with printing and  I took it to the guys near Bristol and upgraded to the Dual material print Head,  just over a year ago when I had a major problem, (which was largely my fault for trying to fix it myself...). Overall it is a good printer, well made (especially for schools), and quite easy to set up and print. There are cheaper printers out there, but for the price this one has been well designed and has a lot going for it... and the customer support and response is very good. (For the record - I have a good friend who is in charge of a university 'fab lab', with a number of different (PLA and SLA) 3D printers and he tells me that they are constantly dealing with the issues that I have experienced, so it would seem that my 'problems' have not been unique to my printer). I have 'experimented' with a range of PLA brands - which may have also been the root of some of the issues I've had - some have been trouble-free while others not so... Very recently I purchased two PLA's I've not tried before and right now, (after trying different heat settings), I have some very successful results.... In summary - I would recommend this printer to those starting out.

Robox Review

This is my first foray into 3D printing. This printer makes it easy to get up and running. Some great things about it include: 1) the basic mode is very straightforward, 2) advanced mode lets you get into almost every setting, 3) auto filament detection is great - it even estimates the cost of the object you’re printing. I haven’t tried dual material printing yet but look forward to it. The quality is relatively good, but prints take quite a while. If you want a basic printer to start learning on, this one’s great.
