XYZprinting ABS Plastic Filament Cartridge, 1.75 mm Diameter, 600g, Yellow

The XYZPrinting ABS filament is a 600g cartridge of 1.75-mm diameter yellow filament for use with the XYZPrinting daVinci 1.0 3D printer (sold separately). Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a strong thermoplastic that can be surface treated with sandpaper or acetone after printing. It is commonly used with a heated bed set to around 80 degrees C (176 degrees F) to prevent warping during the printing process and facilitate removal. The print temperature ranges from 215 to 250 degrees C (419 to 482 degrees F).

XYZprinting manufactures 3D printers. Founded in 2013, this international company has its US headquarters in San Diego, CA.

Reduce and Reuse: ExtrusionBot’s ‘Cruncher’ Recycles and Pelletizes 3D Printing Filament Waste

ExtrusionLogo-No-Background-2-e1401751671578ExtrusionBot is in the business of supplying 3D printing enthusiasts with materials. Breaking into the 3D printing industry with their specialized ExtrusionBot filament extruder that can be used with any desktop 3D printer, the new — and highly popular — company is keeping forward momentum with innovations for user filament production, and always leaving a smaller footprint.

ExtrusionBot began their journey with a stunning campaign on Kickstarter to reach a goal of $10K for their filament maker but, with huge success, ended with nearly $90K in funding. Now, they’ve launched a new filament product for recycling, the Cruncher, that works side-by-side with ExtrusionBot materials or as a standalone device, and has just been launched on Kickstarter with a goal of $20K — and good progress so far.

Self-contained and homebuilt, the ExtrusionBot itself touts a good long list of benefits to include speed andgif built-in spooling. The primary and most important feature with the ExtrusionBot though is the affordability it lends to the 3D printing enthusiast, who may have gotten past the initial expense and output for the 3D printer itself, but is finding the ongoing filament expense to be a drain — and a drag.

Using ABS or PLA pellets, affordable spools of filament are produced with automatic spooling so that you don’t have to pick up and spool a big mess of filament from the workshop floor later; however, what do you do with all that excess filament? We spend a lot of time discussing speed and affordability, but very little time discussing waste. What do you do with all your filament waste? Is it piling up in the trash or the recycling bin? Have you got it stashed in a corner of your work area, with big plans to use it for a concept that you are still waiting to come to you?

ExtrusionBot is bringing you a way to deal with filament waste now — and to add right back into your bottom line. If you love to come full circle with recycling like so many of us do, this means you are never creating waste.

Enter the Cruncher, which helps you not only with driving down your material costs but also expands your world creatively as you can afford to come up with more design ideas and do the 3D printing, both mastering the technology and coming up with the next amazing invention the world is waiting for. Next time you have a failed print or something that doesn’t come out the way you like, wasting material is not an issue — and now you know what to do with old prototypes sitting around uselessly, gathering dust balls.

the other guysThe fully-motorized Cruncher literally eats up the waste and spits it back out in even smaller pellets than were used originally for making the filament. It can also be used separately, and crunches all materials. Referred to as a ‘pelletizer,’ the recycled filament is reduced to a uniform, fine mass of pellets that make even higher quality 3D prints.

The ExtrusionBot team has been working on the Cruncher for a year now. Functioning prototypes are completed, and with the funds they will perform a slight bit of “fine tuning in the tooling process,” and then begin pumping out the orders for their supporters right away.

With the funds from Kickstarter, the ExtrusionBot and Cruncher team also plan to develop an even larger crunching capacity — from 2″ x 3” to 4″ x 6” — and develop a built-in plunger to go with the machine. Those who pledge at the $50 mark receive 10 pounds of pellets and 5 color packs. As the amount ascends to the $455 range, the Kickstarter supporters receive the machine itself in an early bird special, with packages becoming more inclusive as pledges increase.cycle

And yes, you can basically ‘crunch’ anything you want — including all those plastic water bottles. Whether you are 3D printing or not, crunching unnecessary items looks not only fun but cathartic. What a great way to relax, recycle, save money, and save the planet.

PLA Gold Filament 1.75mm, 1kg / 2.2lb Printing Material Supply Spool for 3D Printer

These 3D Filament roll in a spool wheel comes in many various colors and in different materials (ie such as ABS or PLA, etc). This is a durable material designed for strong, resilient parts. When printed, this 1.75 mm high temperature filament diameter will look good and have slightly more texture than standard filament.

PLA can be composted at commercial facilities unlike ABS which is derived from fossil fuels. PLA is a more earth friendly plastic. It is stronger and more rigid than ABS, and in general the printed objects will have a more glossy look and feel compared to ABS. Unlike ABS, PLA can be sanded and machined. PLA has a lower melting temperature compared to ABS. As a material, PLA has much less warping versus ABS. Additionally, a heated bed is not required to print it. PLA generally enjoys sharper details and corners compared to ABS without the risk of cracking or warping. PLA can also be printed at higher throughput speeds.

Compatible with Flashforge, RepRap, Makerbot, UP!, Lulzbot, Afinia, Solidoodle, MakerGear, Printrbot LC, and more!
