Headquartered in San Diego, Robo is a leading manufacturer in desktop 3D printers—and their versatility within the industry has become obvious over the past few years, evidenced in their detailed case studies as they have worked closely with their customers around the world.
The last time we checked in with the innovative team, they had released an educational study based on their 3D printers being used in a fifth-grade classroom, and launched an Earth Day design contest to use 3D printing for the (literal) good of the world. Now, shift into high gear—and learn more about how Robo 3D printers have made a lasting impact at a small motorcycle shop that builds custom bikes in Plano, Texas.
Sofi Tsingos began riding dirt bikes at the tender age of nine but moved on to street bikes as soon as she was able. And while Sofi and her team (to include father George) are all about creating and enjoying motorcycles, they have developed a deep respect for technology that can help them build better parts faster, more affordably, and best of all, without a middleman. Upon discovering the wonders of 3D printing at a local makerspace and realizing the technology would probably be well-suited to creating motorcycle parts, Sofi purchased a Robo R1+ for GT-Moto, upgrading to the Robo R2 several years later.
