A project log for Xtruder - A Desktop Filament Extruder

The machine uses an extrusion screw to make filament, yarn and small beams out of plastic pellets and flakes 10/01/2020 at 04:460 Comments

Finished the mechanical part an made some testruns. Had some problems with stucked pellets and added a second heat band. Also needed to reduce the inner diameter of the nozzle. 

The Problems with burned filament are now gone.

Will add a second temperature controller and change the gear ratio as well as the hopper design.
