About

VHS members & fans plan to build a Lyman Filament Extruder to recycle ABS plastic scrap from DIY 3D printing.

This project requests your assistance. Look for Status items and put your name in to show that you are taking care of it. Example:

  • Dan R Doing a thing

Together we can make this happen!

The Plan

  • Acquire all the parts
  • Assemble the device
  • Test the device
  • Teach other how to use & maintain it
  • Upgrade the device

Acquire all the parts

  • needs a sponsor Digitize the part list into a Google Doc so we can track the status of every part.
  • Dan R A bin must be created to hold all the parts. The bin must be labelled and stored in the approved location. The Filament Extruder should probably live under the fume hood near the fire escape because of the ABS fumes. The Extruder needs about 12"x24" of dedicated bench top space.
  • Once the list is digital we can divide the work of acquiring parts.
  • We may even be able to get a grant from VHS to fund the project.
  • Once we have every part we can begin Assembly

Test the device

Teach other how to use & maintain it

Upgrade the device

* Put the device into a quick-access storage system so that it doesn't have to use valuable bench top space.
