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 up to 40 ipm depending on the type of plastic. In the time it take to design your part, you can already have enough filament to print it.

The Filabot Wee Kit does not come assembled.

**Voltage Note - the 110VAC or 220VAC specific to the country that you are going to be using the extruder system in. There is no operational difference between the 110VAC or 220VAC.**
