FilaWinder only $179.99
We have started selling the FilaWinder. A fully automated filament winder that utilized a feedback loop to maintain high filament tolerances. This is great for people who want their filament operation to take up less space or don’t want filament coiling on the ground.
The Vapor Print Finisher(VPF) is a hotplate that can be used to perform acetone vapor baths. An acetone vapor bath uses acetone vapors to smooth out a 3D printed ABS part. Giving your prints a smooth glossy finish. The VPF is small and compact and gives you the freedom to perform vapor baths in well ventilated areas.

We have done it. The last of the Filastruder Kickstarter machines has been picked up. I would like to start out by saying thank you to all of the amazing backers. Without your support, we would not be as successful as we are today. You were supportive even though we were a month or two late with your machines. For that we say thank you. We would also like to say thank you to Tim Elmore and the Filastruder Team. This has been a rewarding experience and everyone at OSP appreciates this amazing opportunity.
To say thank you and celebrate our success, we are offering 15% off everything in the store. Using the code 15off when you are checking out and you will receive 15% off the entire order. This code can only be used once and applies to everything in the store. This offer ends 12/3.
Great work by David Smith using our plastic and colorant.

I’ve been mixing up different colors and running them through the Filastruder. I’ve kept the Filastruder going 100% of the time. I’m trying to do them in an order so that the colors are similar and that one batch can quickly transition to the next. Here is what I’ve done so far.
Lemon/Lime (1:64 master batch ratio) – The color came out very close to a nice lemon lime color. The color varied back and forth between green and yellow as it would hit one of the master batch granules.
- 2 cups ABS Natural from OSPrinting
- 1.25 tsp yellow master batch
- 0.25 tsp blue master batch
Yellow (1:32 master batch ratio) – I wanted a color that could be used to print a Pikachu for my daughter. For a true Pikachu yellow, I probably should have added a tiny bit of red to it. The yellow came out nice although I’d like it to be a little darker and richer.
The newest version of the manual is out. We have changed out a few parts and how we assembled the fan assembly. The 3D printed bars have been changed with laser cut ones. Also, the fan is placed under the fan mount. This allows better adjustment of the fan assembly and prevents the fan from blowing on the nozzle. If you have the printed guide bars, here is Manual V1.1.
It has been a while since we have last posted here. We have been working hard to build machines and get them out the door. Well today we shipped out 27 machines, marking the end of August (machines)!!
We have around 96 more machines to go. This should take us between 5-6 weeks to complete.
On a side note, we got glow in the dark master batch!! You can find them in our store individually or with any of our bundles.
First off, I have left my job and will be going full time starting Monday. What does this mean for you, well I can focus way more time than before. I will be going from 10 -15 hours a week to 40+. This means more time to build machines, more time to focus on product development. I have some good ideas in the pipeline, I just needed the time. So lets Celebrate!! For the next two weeks we will be giving any order of $30 10% off. Use the code 10off. These are exciting times.
We are working on doing bundles. These would include natural plastic, a choice of a few colors, and free shipping. There will be options for domestic and international orders. There will be 4lb option and a 10 pound option. Expect to see these this week. We have also added color bundles. Those are on our store as I type.
When it comes to machines, I know we area bit late but here is our plan. We have majority of the machines done, and I will be building Monday and Tuesday. My goal is to get all of the June kits out this week. When I make the labels, you will receive an email with the tracking info. We are shipping Fedex ground for the US and USPS for international orders. We have shipped a few kits and have learned a ton about how to ship these machines and ways to improve.
One of those improvements was a manual. https://www.dropbox.com/s/8s2b79448uizm1j/Out%20of%20the%20box%20Manual.pdf This manual will cover what to expect in your box and what you need to do to get to your first extrusion. In the future we will be releasing troubleshooting guides and how to change out nozzles.
Once we are done June machines, we will be rolling right into July machines.
We now have a Tech support email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any issues with your machine or need help, email us and we will do everything we can. This email will also help us track issues and improve our design and your experience.
I would like to say thank you to all our great supports and everyone who has given us feed back. Keep it coming!!
