Q: How did you get started on Robo 3D?

The idea for Robo came up pretty organically. My business partner, while in college at San Diego State University, was designing a 3D printed prosthetic leg using an industrial 3D printer for his senior mechanical engineering project.

When I saw what he was doing, and laid my eyes on 3D printing, it just made sense to me. I could see how this tool could be used in education, to bring product ideas to life, and to enhance the speed of innovation within businesses. The possibilities were endless. I knew from that moment that we needed to build our own machine.

With a small budget of about $1,500, we started building our first 3D printer.

After about six months of assembling this machine with wood and other makeshift pieces we found on eBay and from Ace Hardware, we created a home-grown video and launched our machine named the Robo R1 on Kickstarter.com.

With a goal of $49,000, we ended up raising $649,000 in 35 days! This led to the beginning of Robo. Five years later, we have put 10’s of thousands of 3D printers in the hands of students, makers, professionals, and designers across 4500+ cities and 101 countries.
