State of the Art - And a Bit Ahead of This, too.
To be a specialist means not driving a "One-Production-Matches-All" factory.
Looking for suppliers to produce our filament according to our standards we learned that there are many factories all over the world who got the equipment to extrude plastic rods of all different kind and size.
And many of them already tried to do 3D filament, too. But none of them was able to match our standards. We end up learning that having a extrusion line and some cheap 'helping hands' only will never be the way to get a marketable product.
It needs more than this: creative engineering, experience in production and reliable sources - to mention main topics only. That is why we decided to do it all by ourselves first. So we did first.
