Filament Factory is a small business started by engineers in Feb 2013 to further democratize the additive manufacturing revolution.
Shocked at the cost of filament for out beloved 3D printers, and knowing the prices of the raw materials, we set about to create an affordable, self contained, industrial strength filament creation system, and the Filament Factory was born.
Typical industrial units cost in the order of $100 000 and will deliver 100 fpm or more of filament (10 kg/hr). These system are highly optimized and typically meant for only one or 2 types type of material.
Personal filament makers are slow, unreliable and does not lend itself to a business
