Are you shipping yet? How long will it take for mine to show up?

Yes we are! Due to demand we currently have a backlog of orders to fulfill. Our current lead time is about 4 months.

What kind of plastics can I use? Can I mix plastics?

Right now, we have PLA and ABS fully automated - with HIPS, Nylon, PETG, and a few others coming soon. You can also experiment with manual mode to calibrate ProtoCycler for new plastics. Mixing plastics is generally not recommended, unless you know what you're doing - but if you're looking to experiment, we're here to help!

What if I don't want to use recycled plastic?

Don't worry! We sell virgin pellets as well - you'll still save ~75% over regular spools of 3D printer filament, while getting more control over the colour and additives you use.
