People have been asking about colorant. So here is our plan and an estimate of pricing. We will be adding Blue, Red, and Yellow ABS colorant. On top of that, we will be adding Black, Yellow, Red, and Blue PLA colorant. We have gotten quotes for these and once the kickstarter ends, things will be put in motion. All colorants will be priced between 2-3 dollars for a 2oz bag. Each 2oz bag will color between 5 to 10 pounds depending on mix ratios. We are also working on adding glow in the dark ABS colorant but we don’t have pricing at the moment.
We have also purchased MG94 natural ABS. This plastic has been tested extensively by the beta testers. This is what we will be shipping out with the kits and selling on our site. Our plan is to offer a few different types of natural ABS, that way people can pick what fits their needs.
Things has been quiet on our blog but that does not mean we have been doing nothing. We have been working with Tim Elmore (Designer of the Filastruder) over the past few months. We are happy to say that we will be manufacturing the assembled Filastruders and after the Kickstarter, we will be selling them. Tim has presented us with a great opportunity and we could not be happier. This is a great device and I encourage anyone who is looking to make filament at home, to buy one. Our CNC router is ready to crank enclosures out and we are ready to assemble them. Show your support and help this project succeed. Check out the Kickstarter and spread the word!!!
We helped design the enclosure and I am happy with the way it came out. I also like how our machine has a huge scar!!

Say hello to our new plastic!!
The new web store should be up and running. We have separated the natural plastic from the colorant. This just simplifies the process and helps us track inventory better. We are also offering shipping through Fedex, UPS, and USPS. If you have any issues with the store, please let us know. This is new software and we would like to work out any bugs quickly.
We are updating to our new store. I am sorry if this causes you any hassle.
As we grow as a company, there are cost we need to consider that were overlooked before. We have increased pricing on the natural plastic. This will help us expand and grow. We are also upgrading our webstore and ebay. We have removed free shipping from our eBay post and allowing the customer to choose the best shipping service. This will lower shipping cost for the customer and let them combine shipping better. Upgrading our webstore will give us a more profession look and also give customers better shipping option. We are dedicated to providing a quality product and supporting our customers and this market grows. Thank you
