The CEL Robox is a desktop 3D printer which marks a new level of innovation in 3D printer development. The Robox 3D printer has all the features that you would expect from an extrusion-type 3D printer, with the addition of a number of unique features. For this reason we think that the Robox 3D printer is the ideal choice for any education or hobby 3D printer user.
Featuring a dual-nozzle system to ensure print speeds up to 300% faster than the closest competitors, the Robox printer also allows adjustment of the individual nozzle’s temperature as well as the depth of fill, providing users with complete control of every stage of the printing process and quality.
Compatible with PC, Mac OSX, and Linux, included is the Automaker program designed specifically for Robox.
The Robox contains the world’s first Dual-Pinch Wheel Extrusion System, resulting in consistent extruder operation and high quality resolution. A worm and wheel gearbox powers two indexed contra-rotating feed wheels.
Another first achieved on the Robox is the ability to pause and resume prints, so if anything goes wrong mid-process, users can rectify issues without losing the print.
*may invalidate warranty on head and extruder - see bottom of page for further details*
A 3D printer is a big investment and one that should serve you well over an extended period of time. CEL, the manufacturers of the Robox printer are so confident in the design of their product that they offer a2 year warranty as standard.
How Does the Printer Work?
The Robox is an extrusion style 3D printer. It works by forcing the print material, referred to as 'filament', through a heated nozzle. The filament then melts (this process is very similar to the way a glue gun melts a glue stick).
The heated filament is deposited in layers that cool and harden. These layers build up on top of each other to produce the final 3D object.
The size of the layers can be adjusted depending on the required print quality. Larger layers are used on lower quality prints and smaller layers are used on the best quality prints. The Robox can achieve a print layer resolution of an incredible 20 microns!
Changing the print quality can have a major impact on the overall print time. These print times can easily become many hours, so you should take care when deciding on the quality you need for a particular object.
Automaker Print Software.
AutoMaker is the software used to layout your models, view the status of Robox, and adjust the settings used during a print or other operations.
Without a Robox attached there is limited functionality, allowing you to load a .stl or .obj file and manipulate it.
Connect a Robox to allow printing in Draft, Normal, Fine or Custom within 3 very simple steps.
AutoMaker has been designed to make 3D printing easier, allowing you to concentrate on designing parts to print and not needing to fiddle with the print settings to try to get a result. The default settings are tried and tested using the Robox filament and allow even a complete novice user to get a repeatable and consistent result every time. Advanced users have all the control required to satisfy even the most complex print jobs and are able to easily share their custom profiles with all of us.
Auto material detection.
Robox filament is automatically detected and displayed in the software (see image below).
Control multiple Robox 3D printers from one computer!
If you have more than one Robox printer they can all be controlled from one PC. The Automaker software and Robox printer use a simple colour coding system to show clearly which printer is printing which design.

Hi Steve, The Robox printers we currently have in stock have the old version 1 style head, however the head that can be purchased separately is the new version 2 model. https://www.kitronik.co.uk/5424-robox-dual-nozzle-3d-printer-head.html
You can use any software that exports a .stl or .obj file, Sketchup exports a .stl file. However it is advisable to check the design first on MeshMixer for any errors.
Although it is technically possible to print a 3D printer as is the case with something like the rep-rap, this is limited to printing things like rod connectors, however the electronics, motors, belts and etc would need to be purchased as these couldn’t be printed. You would need to get hold of the CAD files to print the parts from something like my mini factory if they do indeed exist. So technically yes you could print some 3D printer parts, but I wouldn’t recommend trying as a self-assembled 3D printer is incredibly difficult to get set-up and aligned and working correctly.
