Robox creates a stir at CES 2014!

By | News | 2 Comments

Curved TV’s, wearable tech, internet enabled toothbrushes (yes you did read that correctly!), it’s all being showcased at this years Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and that’s not all…



CES 2014 also marks the launch of CEL’s first 3D printer, Robox, as the team from Bristol in the UK present their latest invention to the world!

Despite being surrounded by a host of other competitors in the ‘3D Printing Techzone’ (this technology now warrants a category of its own at the show), it’s Robox that has created the biggest stir with techies and journalists alike.

On the opening night of the show Robox featured on BBC national news, ABC news as well as being widely talked about online. Robox has clearly impressed as it picked up an ‘Editor’s Choice’ award from the guys at ( as they describe it as a printer which “outshines the established brands through innovation and open thinking.”

It’s been a whirlwind couple of months for CEL and the work doesn’t stop here, far from it. The next step is production and to get the printers into the hands of our beta testers as soon as possible.

As the weather begins to cool down outside, things are hotting up inside the CEL-UK office. Word is getting out about our 3D printer, Robox, and it’s starting to create quite a stir.

We love setting Robox to work, either to run tests or to try something new, and recently we have been working flat out, printing a whole load of objects in preparation for some big news that will be coming this week! So keep checking back to keep up to date on what’s happening.

Cups, chess pieces, spiral profile prints, cookie cutters and many more objects have all been coming to life on the printer bed, and it’s really exciting to see! We’re continuously thinking of cool things to print, and Robox is helping us realise those ideas.

We’re so passionate about what we’re doing with Robox, and can’t wait to share it with everyone. However it’s the execution and the detail which is going to make Robox better than its competitors, and that’s why we’re cutting no corners as we forge ahead with development.

In the meantime, the printing and the testing continues, as the excitement surrounding the project continues to build.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the big announcement coming on Thursday 21st!
