If you are lucky enough to own a 3D printer you might be interested in a new device called the Strooder, which has been designed to provide consumers with a desktop 3D printing filament extruder.
The Strooder is capable of transforming granules into 3D printing filament, enabling users to mix their own blends of plastic and colours to suit their 3D printing requirements. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action and learn more.
Strooder has been designed to be fully enclosed assuring that no one can touch any of the heated or 3D printing filament extruder mechanical parts. Its also equipped with a full colour display and comes pre-Loaded with all of our recommended settings for each material, That are accessible from the menu interface.
The Strooder has been created by OmniDynamics visiting Bristol within the UK and is now available to purchase for £199 with UK shipping included and a taster bag of 100 g of pellets. Its creators explain :
“From the beginning we decided Strooder needed to look great. If Strooder is going to sit on your desk then it needs to look the part. We pulled in a dedicated design team to make Strooder look just right. We made our screen full colour to look great and offer a more approachable control panel for all users.
Strooder has been built to fit into a multitude of environments as a machine to be proud of owning. To cater for this we aimed to make it as compact as possible. This compact form takes up the least amount of your precious desk space, so you can get on with doing what you wanted in the first place, being creative.”
The Strooder 3D printing filament extruder project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Strooder is something your 3D printing could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Strooder become a reality.
