With Filastruder you can make your own filament and recycle plastic waste.

Do you want to have the ability to produce filament on demand, the one you need in the right color and size for your 3D project?

The Filastruder by the brand Filastruder meets those needs and more, because it is a machine that allows you to filament with the specifications you choose. With Filastruder Kit you can make the filament diameter or 1.75mm 3mm, depending on the chosen extruder. The contents of each version is as follows:

  1. Filastruder Kit: Contains all parts included in the original kit manufactured by Tim Elmore. You need to assemble to larger 3D printed parts. In the download area you can download the STL files printed parts. In the download area you can find the guide that we indicate step by step how mount the kit. In addition, each kit includes 500g of ABS pellets.
  2. Assembled kit Filastruder: Original kit Filastruder fully assembled and tested its operation. In addition, each kit includes 500g of ABS pellets.
    Note: The assembly kit filastruder sent may take 2 to 4 weeks.

How does Filastruder work?

Simply must adjust the desired extrusion temperature, wait until this is achieved in the extruder and then must be added to the pellets and dyes in the hopper to your choice and start the engine gear and begin extruding the Filastuder. The filament by gravity form a roll on the floor or Security for events can also go on a reel if desired using a hand drill.

The ABS is generally the easiest to extrude material. They are achievable tolerances of up to +/- 0.02 mm. With the PLA you have to be a little more careful because you have to make sure they are free pellets moisture before extruding to obtain adequate results. Then tolerances obtained with the various materials used are as follows:

  • ABS: +/- 0.02 mm
  • PLA: +/- 0.03 mm
  • Nylon: +/- 0.02 mm
  • Polycarbonate: +/- 0.04 mm
  • PET: +/- 0.05 mm
  • Polypropylene: +/- 0.07 mm

Can you recycle waste of plastic parts? 

If possible, although several difficulties. Should shred the pieces and debris into pieces not exceeding 5 mm on either side. You should avoid containing contaminants (dust, metal waste, etc). Furthermore it must take into account the cycle of the polymers. A more times polymer is reheated becomes weaker as each heat cycle weakens their polymer chains.For this it is essential to add to the waste pellets of virgin material to maintain the ideal strength.

There is a community of users around the world Filastruder interacting with each other, resolving all doubts in the following forum.

After adjusting the desired temperature for extrusion and waiting for a time to reach that temperature, should fill the hopper with pellets and according to the ratios specified in our forum, and finally start the engine dye. The extruded plastic begin in Filastruder, forming a pile on the floor filament later can be wound on a reel. The resulting yarn can be wound quickly and easily into a coil using a normal hand drill.

Set up:

  1. Connect the power supply, the engine switch must be in the off position. If the engine starts to turn off the power must change position and the engine switch. The regulator should turn red and the current temperature is indicated in the extrusion head and green the set temperature.
  2. Set the temperature for this we must use the arrow keys to reach the desired temperature. Extrusion temperatures can vary between 170 and 210 ° C. After ten seconds without pressing any key the regulator returns to operating mode.
  3. The first time you use it is necessary to perform the auto-tuning regulator. For this you need to press the AT key for two seconds. This process is automatic and takes several minutes after the end of the controller mode returns automatically. the drive manual where you can find more information enclosed in the kit.
  4. Once the set temperature is reached, it is necessary to wait a couple of minutes before turning on the engine, so that the heat is distributed all along the axis.
  5. Activate the motor, the filament begins to come out of the extruder head. It is necessary to hold a pencil (or the like) until you come to rely on the cylindrical piece of copper.

It is advisable to place the Filastruder at a height of 1.5m and let the filament that will pick up and cooled before touching the ground.

Should not be placed in a place where there are drafts, as these would rock the filament and this would deform.

* The extrusion speed is highly dependent on diameter, material and speed. The extrusion temperature must be adjusted according to the proportion of dye. The extrusion temperature is also limited by the heater power for safety, to avoid thermal decomposition of the polymers.
