Abstract

The purpose of this study is to design and develop a sustainable filament extruder for 3D printer. A filament extruder is a device that used to create spools of plastic filament for the usage of 3D printer material supply. It also can recycle the expensive plastic waste created from the 3D printing process and transform it to useful thermoplastic 3D printer filaments again and again, which lead to cost reduction for 3D printing process. During the process of this project, several literature reviews are taken out as to study the design of the existing filament extruders and apply the knowledge gained from the researches on developing the methodology of the design. By referring the design of the existing filament extruder, several design concepts and approaches are being developed before going to prototyping process. A filament extruder prototype was fabricated at the end of the project.
