Bottle Filament Machine Project

pet bottle filament machine petamentor2

Hello guys. welcome to the PETamentor MK2 build support site! If you’ve been thinking about building a machine that turns a PET bottle into filament for 3D printing and haven’t found a suitable project, you’ve come to the right place.

What is own PET Bottle Filament?

Recently, a large part of the public in the field of 3D Printing has been engaged in the production of their own filament from PET bottles. The idea of โ€‹โ€‹producing PET filament is very simple. You take an empty PET bottle, which you clean from the label, glue (video cleaning a PET bottle from glue). You cut the bottle into a strip, which you stretch through a hot nozzle, which forms a tube with filament from the strip.

Why should be a PETamentor the best option for you?

  • You don’t have to be too much skilled maker๐Ÿ˜
  • You just connect the electronics with wires ๐Ÿ‘
  • No Arduino = No programming ๐Ÿ’ช
  • There are only a few parts to buy ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ
  • Most of the parts are 3D printed. ๐Ÿ˜œ
  • STL files are for FREE ๐Ÿ˜
  • You can join our FB group to ask ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • No need to make cutter part, you can use some 3rd party ๐Ÿ˜‰

Not sure if it’s worth it? ๐Ÿ˜

Well the truth is this:
Ever since you own a 3D printer, you know that when everything works properly, the world is beautiful. You probably already know the other side of 3D printing. It’s a pain, hours of searching for errors and the endless battle for victory. Making your own filament is the same. However, PETamentor offers you wide support among other users who are starting out like you, or have already successfully completed their journey and now you can use their ninja skillsโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜
