ProtoCycler V3: The Most Advanced Filament Extrusion System for Education and R&D
Custom 3D Printer Filament, On Demand
Create custom 3D printing filament on demand with ProtoCycler V3.
Patented MixFlow technology outperforms the competition - at any price point - and results in the highest quality filament possible.
Intelligent control systems handle every aspect of extrusion - automatically ensuring your 3D printer filament is always in spec.
Advanced software, 3rd party safety certification, and available grinder are all exclusive to ProtoCycler V3 - no other system offers this much technology, or this level of performance.
Recycle your 3D Printing Waste
Save your wallet - and the planet. Reduce 3D printing filament costs by 80% and recycle all your waste in the process.
ProtoCycler V3 is the only extruder on the market available with an optional grinder that can shred 3D printing waste - such as rafting or support material - into granules that can be used to make new filament.
Certified safe for the lab or classroom, ProtoCycler V3 eliminates your 3D printing waste, and provides sustainable 3D printing filament.
Unleash your 3D Printing Creativity
ProtoCycler V3 comes with our Command Center software that tracks 20+ parameters related to filament extrusion, allowing you to experiment and create new materials for 3D printing or otherwise. Command Center is the most comprehensive filament extrusion software available.
Powered by artificial intelligence, it is able to learn and optimize new plastics, and can be safely run on autopilot. Frequent firmware updates ensure your system is always top of class, and are free for life.
Trusted Around the World
I was impressed at the control my team had in filament prototyping. The hardware and software were much more accessible and comprehensive than the large filament extruder we use for fiber infused PLA. It was very easy to know what parameters to change when prototyping new filaments. The data outputted by the sensors allows you to know what parameters to adjust from basic temp and speed to PID weights. We were able to prototype and extrude new filaments in a relatively short time span. We got the results we wanted. Best filament extruder for prototyping without a doubt!
I love making good quality filament with my ProtoCycler! The menu structure is easy to understand and the ability to load and create new profiles is great. Having the ability to change settings on the fly (through the software) is really useful while experimenting with new materials as changes can be made in real time.
I tried the ProtoCycler+, and it is a perfectly functional device! The filament extrusion software works great. I have nothing but praise!
Very cool tech! I have had a lot of fun being able to personally recycle my own prints and make my own filament using the ProtoCycler+
