Do you need free filament?
#1
I am inventing an extruder that makes filament. I am looking for someone that will use the filament in their 3D printer and send me a video of it working. i will send you some filament - let me know how many feet you need - to make something small, like a medallion.

The filament will be 1.75mm diameter ABS or PLA.

thanks for you help!

I need a couple of extruders for my long term plan to work. I am very interested in leaning more about your unit . How many KG p/hr?

We are having some issues with thickness variation. when i get this sorted out, i'll let you know about the kg/hr of filament.

thank you for your interest!

The world of filament extrusion is tough. Our filament is plus or minus one tenth . A laser monitors the filament and is interlocked with the controls of the extruder. Besides being instantly updated about the diameter, the entire extrusion process is done in less than 40 % humidity.
A note about the almost free filament from Canada it was really expensive when you added in the cost of shipping. My cost to my home would have been $20.00 filament and $24.00 shipping for a whooping $42.00 per kilogram.
Hang in there. there are several vendors including us that ship a spool Priority for $ 32.95 That is shipped priority not economy $ 32.95 . Made at home $7.00 bucks?

P.S.
I forgot don't forget to contact me if you need pellets ABS or PLA. How much do you think you will be selling your machine ?

So can you recommend some 3D printers that can print metal, but not for home use?
