I have been googling a lot for good quality filament that is not overpriced, eventually I came up on a few links to make your own filament factory (filament extruder).
It does not look that hard, nor that easy. But my main question is if anybody has any experience in this? Who have tried it before or who is actually doing this a lot for his own filament.
I mean the idea of having 1KG of filament for around 1$/KG is very tempting to try.
I have seen some kits to build one for around 300$, but on instructables there is a complete guide on making on on your own for less then 200$. And if you have some of the parts already available you won’t even pay more then 100$.
To everybody who tried this, how was the filament quality? My guess is that setting something up like this needs a lot of calibration/fine tuning to end up with some nice quality filament.
