Recycling filament extruder survey for school project

Recommended Posts

Posted · Recycling filament extruder survey for school project

Hi everyone!

As part of a school project where I am investigating how viable a recycling filament extruder is for hobbyists, I have set up a small survey so I can get an understanding of how the average person uses their printer and filament. I am doing this as the information I collect will allow me to come to a conclusion whether hobbyists should recycle their waster prints in a filament extruder. I will do this by comparing the trends from the survey to the amount of money and time it takes to make my own filament extruder.

You don't have to own a filament extruder to take this survey and it should take less than 3 minutes. It should also go without saying that all information in anonymous.

I really appreciate your help and look forward to being able to give back to the community in the same way you have helped me!

Here's the link to the survey:


Thanks again!
