World’s Fastest Filament Extruder Launches Kickstarter Campaign and Crushes All Goals

July 9, 2013

The ExtrusionBot is the world’s fastest automatic filament extrusion Bot in the market today. Home-designed and home-built, it can make color in ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene plastic) and PLA (Polylactic acid plastic) filaments of up to four feet per minute, which is so much faster than any extruder in the market today.

The ExtrusionBot is the world’s fastest automatic filament extrusion Bot in the market today. Home-designed and home-built, it can make color in ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene plastic) and PLA (Polylactic acid plastic) filaments of up to four feet per minute, which is so much faster than any extruder in the market today.

The only part of 3D printing that has not evolved and decreased in cost over the years is the filament; with backers help we will change that.

ExtrusionBot is the invention of Mark Dill, a designer, engineer and project manager at Intel for 20 years. He is based in Chandler, Arizona and has been creating electric and mechanic equipment in his spare time.

Before the ExtrusionBot, extruders would take 24 hours to make a spool of filament for 3D printing. The ExtrusionBot cuts the time exponentially. He has designed the machine so that there are no special, or injected molded parts to reduce any delays or lag in the extrusion. With the ExtrusionBot, production is increased by leaps and bounds. The machine also has the smallest footprint in the market, consuming only 7 inches by 10 inches of desk space. It also comes with a built-in spooling system. Its pellet hopper is detachable so larger quantities can be loaded depending on needs. The ExtrusionBot is available in two nozzles, 3mm or 1.75mm, and in various color options.

Dill has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to put this highly innovative product in the market. The funds will go to the bulk purchases of the parts needed to make the ExtrusionBot. Bulk purchases would allow Mark to get discounts from his suppliers so he can pass the savings on to the customers.

So far, the initial goal of $10,000 has been reached and Dill has also met his stretch goal of $50,000. In return, backers can get freebies, such as their own complete and assembled ExtrusionBot.
