Made in SA. The Robobeast printers come with a one year warranty and all parts are readily available. If you are going to use a 3D printer for prototyping or industrial and commercial use, then the RoboBeast is the one and only. It is indestructible! All parts are locally available, with a one year warranty with service support. The RoboBeast Regular is our standard product, prints as fine as 50microns, with a 0.3mm nozzle with a build volume of z=30cm, y=32cm, x=38.5cm and can be delivered within days. Custom built printers can be manufactured to clients specifications. Any size, with dual nozzles & heat beds as options.
We are the only SA company manufacturing 3D printers, ideal for prototyping and small scale modelling or manufacturing. The RoboBeast is bigger and more robust than anything else in its category. Factories of the future are moving away from time consuming and expensive cut away technology machines, such as CNC, lathes, milling etc, and looking at 3D (additive manufacturing) in a big way. This is already changing everything in the manufacturing & engineering sector.
The RoboBeast was showcased at the Popular Mechanics show recently (editor’s choice) and featured on Carte Blanche (SA tech company leading the way). The response has been incredible. Compared to the imports in this category, these printers are not only superior in many ways, they also are made in SA with local support and maintenance.
These printers have intelligent firmware on their 32bit control board so all that is needed to run the printers is a 3D software design which is uploaded to a slicing software (free) and printed.
For the Techno-buffs, below is an outline of what you can expect to find in a RoboBeast 3D Printer:
• Build bed size:
o z = 300mm
o y = 320mm
o x = 385mm; (Supersize x=800mm)
Outer diameter 600mm x 600mm x 600mm (Supersize 1100mm)
Total weight 25 kilograms; (Supersize 35kg)
Will come fully assembled with 45 hrs test print time;
Main construction is Aluminum 44mm x 44mm extrusion;
Battery back up (8 kilograms);
Solar panel (15 kilograms);
Battery will maintain a 5 hour back up print;
Self leveling print (not bed);
Print with PLA 1.75 filament;
0.9mm Nema 17 motors;
Aluminum filament extruder (compliments of Printrbot);
No heat bed;
The optional BBB runs the GNU/Linux Ångström distribution which was configured to boot directly into a Qt application to present the user with a simplified user interface. The Qt application consists of a webkit frame which serves static and dynamic HTML5 content;
The HTML5 content uses Bootstrap and jQuery as the main supporting libraries and the user interface is served from a Python web server containing a Flask application. Static contents was generated using Jekyll and dynamic contents using Jinja2 templates;
Interfacing to the Printrbot is done through the excellent Python printcore library which is part of the PrintRun project (Pronterface and Pronsole)
The board configuration and software development was contributed to RoboBeast by Guy van den Berg and Schalk Heunis from Microsmart – a House4Hack supported start-up. Microsmart specializes in intelligent interconnected devices and service
