home filament extruders
« on: April 04, 2017, 07:44:34 AM »


 just feeding my craze!  with this grab & paste run down of home extruders, there no shortage of choices with deep pockets in some cases, for the ready to work out the box.        From the US to Italia with all in one solutions to smart control  with latest generation  machine. no idea if they're any good!! but when I find a trusty review I,ll add it. and  to be honest if i had 7 grand I cruise the med for a month.

 technically the filastruder shouldn't be in the listing  as it a kit based product, but it be a lonely posting on kit form with only the filastruder and the  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyman_filament_extruder lyman DIY approach  so in no particular order. 



filafab 100:
     

     "FilaFab PRO 100 – The Filament Fabricator

Noztec:
   
  "With retail filament prices being so expensive we identified a need to reduce the cost of plastic for 3D printing and have built a reliable filament extruder for use at home or office. The Noztek Pro combines a high torque planetary motor and a bespoke engineered screw, which offers fast extrusion of ABS ans PLA resin pellets at tight tolerances.  Most of the other extruder’s currently on the market are in kit form, which is great for the enthusiast, but as 3D printers become mainstream we felt that consumers would much rather have a plug and play model. The Noztek Pro can be unboxed and is ready to use in about 15 minutes, just plug in, turn on the heater add the resin pellets, then turn on the motor and you will be extruding straight away."

filastruder:

          "Are you frustrated with the high cost of filament for your 3D printer? Do you desire the ability to produce filament on demand, as it is needed, in the color and size appropriate for your 3D project?
The Filastruder filament extruder meets these needs and more, because it is a filament-making machine. The reason for starting this project is simple - raw plastic pellets are cheap costing only a few dollars per kg, while filament for 3D printers is much more expensive - $30/kg and more. "

                                               nabbed from filastruder

Specifications:
• Extrusion Rate: 12-18 inches/minute with MG94 ABS (3-5 lbs/day)
