CEL EXHIBITS ROBOX AT TCT

By | Exhibiting | One Comment

If you have been waiting for the opportunity to see the Robox 3D printer in action then look no further, as this week the team are delighted to have a stand at the TCT Show at the Birmingham NEC.

The show runs between 30th September and 2nd October, and during this time Chris Elsworthy, creator of the Robox, and Chris White, our LEAD mechanical engineer, will be running demos of the printer on Stand B40.

In addition, Chris White will also appear on stage to present the Robox in one of TCT’s Introducing Sessions on Thursday 2nd October. This is an ideal opportunity to learn about the capabilities of this very unique 3D printer, and to find out more about CEL.

To listen to Chris, go to Booth A33, Hall 3A, at 12:15 on Thursday.

We hope to meet you at the stand!

SEPTEMBER COMPETITION WINNER

By | Competitions, Exhibiting, Kickstarter, News | No Comments

Opening the post has never been so exciting for us as it has been this past month. The very first Robox Print Competition, open to BETA backers only, has been a roaring success, so much so that we have decided to run a monthly competition as the Robox gradually gets rolled out to more and more people.

September’s competition was a real test for us, as it was the first time we could witness prints made by people who didn’t work for CEL, and didn’t know the Robox inside out.

We were relying on our BETA testers to get to grips with the first Robox units which rolled off the production line, to produce as high quality prints as possible. Tellingly, the first round of Kickstarter backers rose to the challenge, with some people entering several prints rather than just one.

And so… the winner is…. drum roll please…. DAVID MUSSAFFI!

David entered several models into the competition, but it was the Woman’s Torso Sculpture which really impressed us, and which has been selected as the overall winning entry.

And to watch the Robox creating the Woman’s Torso have a look at the You Tube video:

David will receive a filament pack as his prize, and we can’t wait to see what he enters into October’s competition!

However, David’s entry wasn’t the only one to impress us, so we have decided to create a runner up position, and this will be awarded to ROB HARWOOD for his beautiful Scripted Vase.

Rob will also receive a little goodie pack for his troubles, and we hope to see more entries from him in future competitions.

Thank you to all BETA testers who took the time to print and enter our very first completion – some of these entries will be on display at the TCT Show at Birmingham NEC between 30th September and 2nd October, so come and visit us on stand B40 to take a look.

And watch this space for news and details of our next competition, which will be launched on 1st October 2014.

By | Exhibiting, News | No Comments

We are delighted that independent specialist retailer of desktop 3D printers and 3D scanners CREAT3D have chosen to exhibit their trade sample of the Robox at this week’s 3D Print Show in London.

CREAT3D will soon be adding the Robox to their product line-up, and following the show will display the unit in their showroom in Reading. Units will also be available for pre-order direct from www.desktop3dprinter.com.

Simon Chandler, Managing Director of CREAT3D said: “CREAT3D are keen to work with innovative and exciting British designers and manufacturers and so we are thrilled to be able to offer our customers the Robox 3D printer from CEL.

“The Robox has many unique features and offers many of our customers an accessible way into 3D printing with a highly capable product at a very competitive price.”

For us at CEL, we couldn’t be happier to have the backing of a company such as CREAT3D, as they’re a like-minded company and we believe experts hand-pick the best of the industry to display and sell on their website.

To find out more about CREAT3D, and see the Robox in action, visit stand P15 between 4th and 6th September at Old Billingsgate.
