Hi! I am a mechanical engineer who studied at McMaster University in Toronto, Canada. I have a passion for automating boring/dangerous tasks. My interest in small scale filament extruders arised whilst working at a 3D printing lab in Rwanda. At this position, I learned about the (a) amazing use of 3D printing in developing countries and (b) inhibitively high cost of importing 3D printing filament to developing countries. Therefore, I am building a minimalist filament extruder that can makes 3D printer filament in low-resource settings. If this project interests you, please check out our Discord:
