Cel Robox 3D printer (pictures)

The Cel Robox 3D printer uses two nozzles to print from a single source of filament, and it prints pretty fast. Unfortunately, it doesn't have enough to justify the $1,500 price tag.

The printer's print head has two extruders (nozzles), one dedicated to printing fine details and the other for in-filling.

The printer uses smart reels (spools) to hold its filaments. The reel tells the printer what type of filament is being used and how much is left.

It works with only one filament reel at a time.

Oddly, however, it has two filament intakes.

The printer connects to a computer via its USB port. It can only work with a computer. There's no support for printing from an SD card or a thumb drive.

The printer can print very quickly, but its print quality isn't as good as other printers.
