Thanks for your interest in building my machine. I have exams this January so I-m focussing on that now.
Regarding your project I think it is a lot of time, work and money to build all the setup with the shredder, injection, extruder… I was in the same situation and I ended focussing on one of them. I think precious plastic extruder is a…[Read more]
@pipoa, I still work on that!
I have a newer version of the machine, I will do a video really soon!
Also, I’m preparing all the documentation to post it in my future webpage!
I will post:
A 3D model with printed parts
The one-line diagram to understand how it works.
Electric diagram, and connections.
The program that runs the machine.
@pex12, It is an interesting point. I will post something here, I see as an interesting network. I will still post all the files and documentation on my webpage! I have the intention to be donation-based like Arduino or similar.
@sharma-sagar, thanks! and subscribe if you want of course!
@s2019, It is not a warm hopper I had this solution in m…[Read more]
Hi! and thanks for your interest!
I only tested Pla in my extruder, I didn’t try other materials yet. I was focussed to make it work properly with tolerances, I will test other materials and see the differences between them, I have a controlled temperature cooling tunnel. Maybe the distances where the filament diameter sensor and the puller should…[Read more]
Hello, I’m Joan Culleré Mechanical Engineer and Inventor. I did a filament extruder that is pretty good, it’s halfway to be high tech and of course open source. All files will be soon on my page with the code to run it. Everyone will be able to use it if they want. Also, I did other machines: a shredder and pelletizer that converts filament into…[Read more]
