The open source RoBo 3D printer is the brainchild of San Diegans Coby Kabili, Mike Pilkington and Braydon Moreno. They’ve managed to put together a large format, home printer for a price of only $520, fully assembled. You can get it in kit form for only $475.
Take a look at the specs in the comparison chart the RoBo 3D Printer team created, where they match it up against the Makerbot Replicator 2.
If you’re interested, head over to their Kickstarter page and read more. Even if you aren’t going to buy one, you can send them $5 for a sticker or $25 for a t-shirt. They’ve also got a website and you can sign up for email updates there.
