‘renegade’ was born with the aim of being the perfect solid tool to eliminate overpriced 3D printing filaments and to save the environment by directly recycling and reusing household plastic waste for 3D printing. the sustainable technology specializes in one thing, and one thing only — it prints models by recycling plastic bottles, files, and bags. it does this providing a great 3D printing experience with no compromises.
‘renegade’ uses a robust and powerful extruder that includes a screw-feeder mechanism and heating system. these combine to transport, destruct, and melt the plastic tape produced by the ‘chupacut’ plastic bottle shredder or even standard filaments. the rotating screw forces the heated plastic to move forward evenly and extrudes it from the nozzle. the molten plastic then cools down rapidly into a solid and stable spatial structure. the tool uses a powerful drive motor and gearbox, eliminating well-known issues in plastic material feeding that most 3D pens currently face. the temperature is adjustable from 50°C to 320°C using a single controller and the speed is also controlled by a single button.
