Reverse Space – Build, Create, Collaborate. “LYMAN FILAMENT EXTRUDER II”

[masked]PM to 11PM Open. All are welcome!

We are looking for visionary thinkers to help us build the Lyman Filament Extruder. This is a game changer technology which allows people to make their own filament for their 3D printers for around 10% of the cost of buying filament using cheap industry standard pellets. With the invention of large format 3D printers, the material cost of printing huge life size creations is now financially possible with the reduced cost in materials. We bought the kit with all of the required equipment to assemble the filament extruder and have ABS pellets to use with the machine. Come by and join the group to build the filament extruder and be part of 3D printing history!

The inventor of the extruder Hugh Lyman won $40,000 in the Desktop Factory Competition in exchange for him to release the design to the open source community for anyone to use free of cost.

3D - “Rostock Delta Arm 3D printer” Ready for final print tests.

3D - “PrintRbot LC” - This 3D printer needs to be calibrated and test prints done.

3D - “RepRap” - This also needs to be calibrated and test prints done.

CNC - “ShapeOko CNC” New stepper motor controls are now here and need to be installed.

3D - “B9Creator” Getting a working print and settings with our DLP light 3D printer.

Drone - “Flight of the 3D printed quad copter drone” The drone needs to fly.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
