Gallery: INTERVIEW: Inhabitat Talks to botObjects Founders About ProDes...

botobjects interview 3D printed vase

Just over a month ago, we showcased a product with the potential to revolutionize the still-new 3D printing industry: the ProDesk3D by botObjects. Hailed as the world’s first full-color 3D printer, the ProDesk3D allows designers to pick a desired palette and quickly print the final product with a five-color, re-usable PLA cartridge system. Since the ProDesk3D is only in the pre-order phase (and we were eager to know more), Inhabitat reached out to botObjects founders Martin Warner and Mike Duma to dig deeper into the development process of this ground-breaking product. Read on to find out why the ProDesk3D pushes the boundaries of 3D printing technology, and how it was designed to make self-fabrication accessible to a larger audience.

    I purchased the prodesk3d blue in august last year, and not only have Botobjects delayed the first shipment from oct, nov, dec, jan but they are refusing to even aknowledge my emails now. Im already thinking they are professional scam artists on a grand scale, and they are still taking pre orders despite not satisfying a single customer and dodgy customer service or should i say ‘in the dark’ approach to hard working people that have already forked out $4000 each.

    im chasing them to get my money back and am persuing an avenue of legal action, as this is unacceptable.

    if you are in a similar position to me, please check out

    and @botobjectstruth and leave your comments.

    If what they claim is true, then this is an awesome printer. I just have a hard time believing their claims. I need to see the printer working. A few videos could answer a lot of my questions.

    175mm per second? Did you mean 175um per second instead?

    If the printed sample is so good why are all the images just renderings? It would be useful to see some proper high res images of the actual samples.
