Not affiliated - but basic "Robot" with 3D Print/ Pick&Place / Milling in a robot that prints out in "big format" if you can live with their "circular" format.

Gosh, I would lurve to have one of those on my desk just to watch it do stuff. Any stuff. Very nice indeed.

But... for 2K you could get something more capable, albeit not as pretty, and so far as I can see the differentiator is that this one has stuff like PnP, printing, etc in mind from the off.

What are some other closed loop platforms you can get for $2K?

I was thinking more about the construction. Closed loop is nice, but not a critical aspect.
