3d ROOKIE, I have worked as a plastics engineer, product manager, market development engineer, lab technician in plastics compounding with emphasis on polyolefins for 35years. IE Polypropylene and Polyethylene with some experience with other resin. For the first few years, if it would melt we would extrude it. I have built two Prusa Mendel printers, and a Lulzbot TK-0/TAZ, I plan to get Polypropylene to print without warping. We have a few additive ideas to stop the warpage. We make and sell pellets, but would also be able to bypass the pelletizer and make strands, we would just need a method to make sure the strand/filament diameter was consistent.
