Did you check out our DIY 3D Filament posts last week? Russ shared his own custom spin on the Lyman Filament Extruder in the Adafruit Forums. Check out his documentation of his build and experiments on his site!
Here one can find my Filament extruder. this is my version of the Lyman filament extruder. I want to be able to recycle my plastic and make more filament for my Delta 3D Printer “Rostock.” Although there are plans and kits out there, This version is of my own thoughts and ideas, so far the only thing i have bought for this project was the wood auger bit for 8$ used as an extruder auger. I also bought used hair dryers for 2$. i used the Nickel Chromium heat wire for the last heater band. other than that this was all stuff from other discarded goods and recycled “junk”…
This is a work in progress….
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
