Robo 3D is making 3-D printing as accessible as ink jet with two new offerings: the R2, a “prosumer” printer for under $2,000, and the R2 Mini, an entry-level version that retails for under $1,000. Get started with a library of printable objects available through the company’s website. The printers are compatible with any open source 3-D printing software.
“I’ve been predicting for some time now that the manufacturing industry will soon change radically, thanks to 3-D printing. Here’s proof. You can now walk into Best Buy and pick up an à la carte card that contains the code to create various objects at home. And this is just the beginning.”
