Open Source SHRED-Buddy3D UPcycler turns leftover filament bits, bottles & fishing line into pellets for 3D printing.
Now You Can Easily and securely Cut and Shred all your leftover Plastics: such as cable ties, plastic bottles, leftover 3D printer material, fishing line and much more.
The whole system is powered by 12V / DC power.
Our self-developed steppermotor Controls allows you to optimally adjust Feedrate for your Situation. Forward, Backward and Stop is integrated for easy operation. The Speed can be continuously regulated via rotary switch.
Process it into Pellets or Granules to use it with your 3D Printer or Filament Extruder.
-What ? Shred-Buddy3D? What can it do?
Producing Flakes / Pellets / Granules:
Leftover 3D Printer Filament - Pellets
(PET/PETE) - Plastic bottles - flakes / granules
(Nylon,Polyamid) - Monofilament Fishing Line - Pellets
(Nylon) - zip ties - Flakes / pellets / granules
(Nylon) - String Trimmer line - Pellets
(many materials available) - Hot Melt Glue Gun Sticks 7,20mm - 7,50mm - granules "testings still in process"
In most cases, any material is different in diameter or shape. For this reason we have a fast-swappable System in form of various slide-tubes implemented.
The shredder-element consists of a sharp HSS drill, which are known for their long durability. The bottle slicer can be easily fitted back to full cutting capability with a standard cutter blade.
And remember, every kind of support is welcome.
