San Diego, California-based 3D printer manufacturer Robo 3D has certainly had an exciting and successful year. Not only did they successfully crowdfund their newest Robo R2 and Robo C2 desktop 3D printers, but it was also awarded with a CES 2017 Innovation Award by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). Now, to cap off 2016, Robo has announced it has made its debut on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

Listed as RBO, 3D printer company Robo is not only debuting on the ASX but managed to raise AUD$6 million with a successful public offer (the maximum subscription). By expanding onto the Australian market, there is little doubt that Robo is continuing to make its mark not only within the United States, where it is based, but also abroad, on a more international level. That being said, all of the company’s main operations, as well as its dedicated team of employees will remain based in San Diego.

Braydon Moreno, co-founder of Robo, said: “Today’s announcement marks a huge step forward in how we continue to pursue our vision as influencers—ensuring we remain steadfast to our principles as a young and hungry team with an original mission, which has always been to give people a tactile means of expressing their full creative potential through simple, easy-to-use and next-gen 3D printing technologies.”

Just a few months ago, Robo completed a successful Kickstarter campaign for its new C2 and R2 smart desktop 3D printers equipped with WiFi. In the wake of the campaign, Robo has already shipped its holiday orders for the Robo C2 Compact Smart 3D Printer, and is preparing to ship its Robo R2 High-Performance Smart 3D Printer in January 2017. If you happen to be one of the lucky people with a Robo C2 under your tree this Christmas, you’ll know you’re in good hands.

“Getting to this point was a monumental task—as all great things are,” said Ryan Legudi, Managing Director of Robo, about being listed on the ASX. “I’m so proud of the foresight and hard work by everyone who’ve brought this across the finish line, knowing that we’re now fully positioned to further change the landscape of 3D printing in bold, inventive new ways as the market continues to grow and evolve.”

Founded in 2012 by a group of innovative students from the San Diego State University, Robo 3D has become recognized for its affordable and reliable desktop 3D printers, selling their products through retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon. With desktop 3D printer sales on the rise, Robo’s expansion into Australia also could be indicative of an eventual expansion into the Asian/Pacific market.
