Make your own Prusa filament?
Hi everyone! OK, an odd question I'm sure but has anyone done any "home-made" filament making that actually works in the Prusa MK3S?
Our son wants to do a school project to recycle filament, I think the +/- .05mm tolerance is a bar too high.. but hey it never hurts to ask!
Thanks for any of your thoughts and experiences!
Filastruder is a commercially available extruder that claims " Generally +/-0.02mm tolerances are no problem with a winder, or +/-0.05mm without. " The winder is a spool winder that is also sold by Filastruder. The winder loads the filament on to an empty spool automatically while the filament is being extruded. I don't have any experience with this device, so I don't make any claims about its capabilities.
Best Regards, Doug
