    It is not that easy since it is not on a label anywhere.

    Start by looking here: https://help.robo3d.com/hc/en-us

    That will get you where you want if you have an R2, C2 or an E3.

    If you have an R1 series then you need to do a little more digging.
    Does it have a glass bed like this (probably with writing on it)? https://www.partsbuilt.com/heated-build-plate-r1-robo/

    If so it is either an R1 or an R1+. If the bed is assembled from Delrin and/or wood (yes, wood) and uses drawer slide rails (similar to this: https://smile.amazon.com/Friho-Hardware-Bearing-Extension-Available/dp/B07BGYMTBD) to move on then it is an R1 BETA.

    The R1 and R1+ use 8mm linear rails (similar to this: https://smile.amazon.com/QWORK-Including-Optical-Aluminum-Support/dp/B089M7GHML)

    The difference between the R1 and R1+ is more subtle. They both have the same bed, but look at the threaded rods that raise and lower the X carriage. If it has these couplers connecting the stepper motor to the rods that drive the Z then it is an R1: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HBV4KCE

    If the threaded rod (leadscrew) is connected directly to the shaft of the stepper motor with no coupler similar, to the link below, then it is an R1+
