Click a company in the menu below to find out.
ReDeTec vs. 3devo
ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler is a low-cost alternative to 3devo’s Composer and Precision series extruders; it
even comes with a built-in grinder so you don’t have to buy one separately! ProtoCycler is versatile enough
to fit the use cases of both the casual hobbyist looking to recycle their old 3D prints as well as the
enthusiast who wants detailed control over every extrusion parameters.
ReDeTec vs. Filabot
Filabot’s EX2 extrusion system is large and capable, but if you’re looking for something smaller and
easier to use ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler is your best bet. With its small form factor, all-in-one functionality,
and advanced control systems, new users can spend less time tuning and more time extruding!
ReDeTec vs. Felfil
Felfil’s Evo Extruder is cost-effective if minimal extrusion speeds are needed, but for those wanting more
than 150 g/hour ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler is a similarly compact, all-in-one recycling system that comes with a
built-in grinder. The ProtoCycler also ships with advanced control systems and free software, allowing for
both extreme control or automatic hands-off extrusion.
ReDeTec vs. Wellzoom
ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler is an all-in-one filament recycler that’s perfect for a new extruder that doesn’t
have the experience to fine-tune a complicated system like the Wellzoom Line II. ProtoCycler even comes with
a 1-year warranty just in case something goes wrong with your extrusion!
ReDeTec vs. FIXstruder
FIXstruder offers a barebones plastic recycler that won’t break the bank. But for the user who wants to
get more out of their extruder, ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler is an advanced solution that can do all the shredding,
extruding, measuring, and spooling in a single convenient package.
ReDeTec vs. Noztek
The Noztek Pro line of extruders might be a good match for a professional with lots of space and a large
budget. But for the majority of extruders, ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler simplifies the decision-making with an
affordable, all-in-one extruder that is perfect for common 3D-printing materials. And as you become more
comfortable, you can use ProtoCycler’s state-of-the-art software to unlock unmatched control over extrusion
ReDeTec vs. RobotDigg
If you don’t have enough space or extruder experience to spring for one of RobotDigg’s affordable
extruders, consider ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler! It can recycle all the most common 3d-printed plastics with
minimal hands-on-attention; with the standard 1-year warranty, even newcomers to the recycling world can
extrude with confidence.
ReDeTec vs. Filastruder
If the steep learning curve of the Filastruder looks daunting, ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler provides all the same
extrusion functionality (and an optional grinder) in a single, pre-assembled package. And if anything goes
wrong, ProtoCycler’s 1-year base warranty has you covered.
ReDeTec vs. Filafab
If you don’t have the time or experience to fine-tune a Filafeb extruder, ReDeTec’s ProtoCycler has the
advanced software and automatic profiles to make extruding a piece of cake; less guesswork, more recycling.
You can even create your own profiles, and share with others to get the optimal spool!
