Those of you that already own a 3D printer or have access to one will already have experienced the mounting costs of purchasing the 3D printing filament required to create and develop your designs and ideas.
Developing, prototyping and printing just a single design can create a number of wasted 3D prints that then need to either be recycled or simply just trashed.
However one Italian team of students has designed an affordable way to recycle old 3D filament and 3D prints as well as create your own 3D printing filament using much cheaper granules, reducing the cost of purchasing ready extruded filament on spools.
Watch the video below to see how the Felfil Evo 3D printing extruder is capable of helping you create custom 3D filaments as well as saving money.
An easy to use filament extruder, which will allow anyone to produce their 3D printer filament on their own, starting from industrial pellet, wrong 3d prints or recycled wastes. You will be able to choose your filament colour, diameter and material, day by day, according to your creativity and your curiosity.
All regular printers know that the filament spools are very expensive, about 35 €/Kg, especially if compared with the price of the same material in the form of industrial pellet, about 5 €/Kg. This is an open project, designed for everyone and developed in a Fablab, thought for makers but also for the less experienced. Currently, our aim is to start a small production in series of Felfil Evo and in order to realize this project we need your help!
