    Hello Everyone . I Just ordered my first Robo R1 plus . I can't wait to check it out. I currently have a Monoprice Select Mini which has and is still serving me well. It's just a bit small. I'm a 48 yr old pattern maker and family man and....I'm in college (again) LOL. Taking up autodesk autocad 2017. Ughh , things sure have changed. Looking forward to getting to know some folks here. See Ya

    Welcome to the forum! I used autocad when I first started 3D Printing and found Fusion 360 (also autodesk) more up to the job (or easier for me ;) ). May be worth looking into if you start struggled with auto cad.

    Welcome to the forum! Congrats on the R1+. I have a few of them and love em.

    I got home from work today and there was a box delivered. I unboxed the printer and a belt was laying on the print bed. Soooo...my first experience with robo as a company was to call the Help Line, LOL. The print head belt (x carriage) wasn't zip tied. Luckily I had a few zip ties which I only needed one. The printer then worked flawlessly. I made a comb LOL Now it's registered and under warranty. It appears robo has great support. I'm super excited to see what this thing can do :)

    At least you are going to be creating models.
    If all you are doing is printing other peoples models... you are limiting the use of the printer a LOT :)
