    The company I work for bought a Robo3D R1+ in November 2016. Let's say I hypothetically get a new job and want to purchase the printer from my current employer. How much do I offer? They paid $600 when it was new (Amazon Daily Deal!). I have not added any significant upgrades to the unit.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can get them used on eBay -- look there for an idea of where to start offering them something.
    They do not retain value very well :)

    the last few used R1+ machines I've purchased I go around 200-250 shipped. figure a brand new one is currently like 400.00 shipped so a used one is half that IMO or less depending on use and upgrades.

    I bought my R1 from the Micro Center in September of 2017 as an open box special (used) for under $200. Offer them $150, and see if they will accept it.

    They should pay you to take it off their hands. A two year old 3d printer from a hobby-level design from 2013 that was used in a business setting is probably on it's last legs/in serious need of maintenance.

    oh I dont know I'd agree with that :D. I use 4 now in my buisness non stop ;) May be an old (possibly out dated) design, but the I3 style design is still a fully functional machine. The good thing is if they did run it hard and put away dirty you can rebuild it for pretty cheap.

    Two original betas I still use and a few more I have helped upgrade that are still running around here :)
    Thousands of hours on those machines, pennies per for repairs.
