Fresh from announcing our partnership with Robo 3D, one of our Robo C2 3D printers was featured on The Gadget Show last night on Channel 5. The new Christmas-themed episode, which will be available on the catch up service My5 soon, is the 10th in Series 26 and saw presenters Georgie Barrat, Jon Bentley, Ortis Deley and Craig Charles battle it out to create perfect Christmas experiences with gadgets, and present a guide to the best Christmas presents available.

So, how did our Robo C2 get on?
Well, our Robo C2 was used to 3D print Christmas decorations for Georgie’s section of the competition. Georgie was tasked with setting the perfect present-opening experience, and put the Robo C2 to good use by 3D printing some very cool PAC-MAN decorations for the Christmas tree. These were joined by pre-made gin-filled baubles, which went down a hit.
Sadly, Georgie only managed second place in the competition, succumbing to Craig’s Christmas entertainment masterclass.
Did you know: This isn’t the first time we have helped The Gadget Show! We also helped them out back in 2015 by lending them an Ultimaker 2, which was used to 3D print a carabiner successfully.
We’d like to give a big thanks to the people at The Gadget Show for the opportunity to help out once again.
