Filabot Wee Kit
The Best Open Source Filament Extruder
The Filabot Wee provides the luxury of an industrial sized extruder right on your bench top. Perfect for any maker space, fab lab, or DIY studio. The Filabot Wee turns plastic pellets into 3d printable filament. Capable of extruding ABS or PLA, the Filabot Wee extruder quickly pays for itself with the cost savings from filament purchased online.
The Filabot Wee can make both 1.75mm and 3mm diameter filament at a very fast rate of 5in/minute to 20in/minute (≈ 13cm to 51cm per minute respectively) depending on the type of plastic. In the time it take to design your part, you can already have enough filament to print it.
