Tools: Worm Driven Extruder
From Fab @ Home
A working model has been completed by the University of Adelaide in Australia, depositing thermoplastic material from a heated cylinder using a screw extruder with precision, fabricating accurate solid objects. The final project report is scheduled for completion in early November outlining all modifications and further developments to the model, including working drawings and design models of how to implement the worm driven extruder. More information on the model available in the Fabbers of the World section.
