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.
To print the vase yourself visit www.thingiverse.com/thing:104694
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.
