EXTPRO - 1.2

The Extruder PRO 1.2 is an iteration based on the Extruder Pro 1.0 (Precious Plastic Community)

This version of the Extruder PRO (1.2) solves 2 main problems: Safety and transportability. How? By following the CE safety requirements (European standards) and designing it to be easily disassembled.

In this how-to you'll find the download files and the requirements to build and run this machine yourself :slight_smile:

Step 1 - Download package

First off, check out the Grabcad link above to download all the files for this machine!

In this folder you will find:

  • 3D CAD (.step and .f3d)

  • Lasercut files (.dxf)

  • Blueprints (.pdf)

  • Schematics

  • BOM

… and more :slight_smile:

You can see a preview of all the files (in case you are just curious ) and you'll also be able to download them for manufacturing

Step 2 - Build

These are the required skills and machinery you or your machine builder will need to have access to:

  • General metalworking (cutting, drilling)

  • Welding

  • Turning (machining on a lathe)

  • Milling (machining on a mill)

  • Laser cutting

  • General electrical work (wiring safety switch, temperature controllers…)

  • Motor electrical work (wiring motor, contactor, overload protection…)

  • Programming (PID, VFD…)

  • Advanced assembly work (require specific tools, measurement instruments and tolerances knowledge to align and assemble)

  • Painting

Machinery / specific tools needed:

  • Grinder, chop saw, MIG/MAG or TIG, drill press

  • Lathe and milling machine (can be manual)

  • 5 axis lathe (for the screw only, it can also be found on the bazar)

  • Laser cutting (this can easily be subcontracted around the world)

  • Torque wrench and bearing mounting tool

Step 3 - Run, Maintain, Create and Sell :slight_smile:
