An Interview with Braydon Moreno, Co-Founder of ROBO 3D
January 31, 2015
One of the 3D printer companies that continues to create a lot of buzz these days is Robo 3D. What is perhaps more amazing about their recognition is that they are a relatively young company having only been formally founded in 2012. They began with the idea of making a 3D printer for people like themselves who want to use the technology, but at the same time are unwilling to pay extreme prices. We recently had the chance to speak to Braydon Moreno, one of the co-founders about their company and their products. The interview was conducted via email, and the transcript is here below.
1) How and when did you decide to get into 3-D printing? What is it from your background that led you to this point?
2) When was ROBO 3D founded and has the company ever done any other type of 3-D printing?
3)What type of material or filament do ROBO 3D printers use? Do you have plans to expand into other materials in the future?
4)What can you tell us about the process and equipment that you use for printing (without giving away your trade secrets)? Is your equipment something you have developed, or have you licensed it from other people?
5) What are build sizes for printers and the objects that you are printing? Is it mainly small objects, or can you print larger ones too? How scalable is your tech?
6) What colors are possible with your printers?
7) Do you have a particular target audience or industry in mind with your current 3-D printing options?
8) Once again, without giving away too much, what other future applications or industries are you hoping to engage with down the road?
9) In your mind, given the wealth of 3-D printing technologies and devices out there, what makes yours stand out from the crowd?
10) Given the explosion in the industry, what do you see from it in the next 5-10 years? Will it continue to become more crowded and do you think we will reach a point where it becomes commonplace for everyday consumers to have a 3-D printer in their house?
