the cost of original supplies.

Suitable for consumers and prosumers alike, FilaFab Plastic Extruders transform fresh or recycled plastic, including general waste (e.g. plastic drinks bottles) and old 3D prints, into high quality fiament that can be used with most FFF 3D printers.

Edward Clifford, Managing Director of D3D Innovations, said: “3D printing is the technology of the future yet bringing projects to life can be incredibly expensive. FilaFab offers 3D printer users a professional standard and environmentally friendly alternative to ready-made fiament at a fraction of the cost. As 3D printing continues to take the world by storm we’re expecting FilaFab to emerge as a must have tool in workshops across the globe.”

The FilaFab Pro 100 (£749) and Pro 350 (£1,299) can produce customised fiament to suit the needs of any project in a variety of colours, diameters and materials.
