    Why ProtoCycler V3?

    • Patented Extrusion Technology

      Our patented MixFlow™ extrusion technology exposes your plastic to less energy, for a shorter amount of time. Making the system 3x more efficient than our closest competitor.

      The absence of viscous shear and thermal degradation also results in improved surface finish and quality of the filament you create.

    • Close the 3D Printing Loop

      Become a self-reliant 3D printing workspace or lab by making your own filament, recycling your 3D printing wastes, and letting our software produce filament on autopilot.

      The system includes an integrated spooler which will neatly spool your filament, and a mechanical grinder to shred wastes into reusable plastic.

    • Reduce Costs and your Footprint

      The ProtoCycler V3 pays for itself. It will save you money on material costs and lower your ecological footprint. Make filament in the exact quantities you need, and recycle any 3D prints and wastes that you no longer need. Save up to 80% of the material costs of 3D printing.

    • High Quality and Safety Standards

      Every unit is made with precision machined North American made components and sent through a full multi point inspection and performance test in Toronto, Canada, before being shipped. The only extruder certified to UL, CE, FCC, and RoHS specs.
