Direct granules extruder
The video about the direct granules extruder...is under construction.
First prototypesFigure 1:
Waste plastics has to be shred into granules. The size of the granules is an important property of the raw material for an extruder. Here I have shred PLA using a blender.
PET from old plastic bottles is another source of material that is currently part of my first test series.
With a first prototype I wanted to find out...
...if my simple home made extrusion screw works...
...and that's what it does!
Next step is integrating an extruder into an existing 3D printer mechanics. I am using a Zonestar P802 Series.
