Filament Extruder Comparison

In this video, we explained how you can recycle your own failed 3D prints into new filament. In the process, we walk through four main steps and explain what to look for in the plastic recycling process.

Since our own extruder is still a prototype so far and not available for sale, we wanted to help you pick the right extruder for you with this Academy post. We have made a comparison table for all well-known extruders for a business plan competition in August 2020, in which you can compare the essential data.

Note: The mentioned products and all their parameters might have changed. Also, some prices are indicated with "~" because they are not available for purchase in dollars and the exchange rate plays a role here.

In our eyes, the SJ35/25 extruder from Robotdigg is currently a good value option that also works great with our Winder and the Airpath.

For more information, feel free to contact us.
