    HI there,
    I dont use Revit files. You really want a 3D model (.step, .stl, .obj etc etc). The quality of your 3D printed architectural maquet will depend on how well you get your slicing done. Do you know what materials you want to print with? The C2 does not have a heat bed so will be a mainly PLA machine. The R1+ machine has a heatbed but a totally open frame so without an enclosure and some work ABS is out (enclosures available from @Printed Solid ). You can use any 1.75mm filament brand you'd like, you are not required to use Robo brand PLA but that is what they say they make their slicing default profiles for so you will have a bit of tweaking to get the desired quality (this is with any machine).

    Unbeliever! There are actually other filaments you can do without a heated bed and if you add something like BuildTak or PEI that list gets even longer :) PLA is just 'easier'

    lol I've done other materials on it, but if you go with ABS, ASA, XT, NGEN etc (probably not for architectural) you will WANT a heatbed read bad :D

    If you are printing ABS on a Robo you need to reconsider your life choices ;)

    Sure, sure, some folks make it work... I even did, but never again.

    R2 does it quite well! (moot point since the R2 isn't an option above, just saying)

    But yes R1+ with no enclosure....I will cry for you lol.
