Allison interviews Braydon Moreno from Robo about their new 3D printers. Braydon demod Robo’s first printer, the R1+, as well as their subsequent R2 with full 3D print capability, and the R2 mini.

An example is a kit to 3D print and assemble a working guitar. Another example is a kit to print and assemble a functional prosthetic hand.
