A project log for Recycling Household Plastic for 3D printing

I'm attempting to recycle my household plastic into usable 3D printer filament

So, I haven't posted anything in a bit. To give you an update, I've partially scrapped my initial desiccant idea, and now plan to just use a pressure cooker attached to a vacuum pump to create a vacuum drying chamber. The vacuum reduces the boiling/evaporation point of water, and allows you to remove it far lower temperatures. As well as that, my Filastruder should be here in the next few days.
