I would like to share with you one 'thing' that i've been working on in the last few days: an high speed filament pelletizer.
It is easy to manufacture, inexpensive and simple. It transforms 1 meter of filament back into pellets in ~2 seconds:
It works great and I think the photos and the videos are self explanatory about how to build it and use.
I'll use it to recover the filament that is rejected from my small manufacture of 3d filament. > http://www.dowire.eu
