Filament welding clamp

Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament welding clamp

There is currently a campaign running on IndieGogo for a filament welding clamp.

It allows you to connect a new spool of filament if you are about to run out during a print or just combine a bunch of different colors for some fun :)

Though I'd share a link to the project. (it runs 'til August 6)

That's a really good idea - I'm in. You could also use it for switching colors in mid-print.

The idea is great, will support it. But one improvement would be great: a second groove so that you can weld 3mm or 1.75mm with the same unit.

Supported it. Looks like a useful device for colorchanges midprint and even for recycling of short filament rests and of course inserting a new spool midprint, when the old is empty. 6 more backers and it´s funded. Come on..

I ordered a fuse clamp on the 5th January this year 2016, but apart from the conformation email which I presume is automated I have had no further feed back, does anybody know if they are still trading etc. I payed by PayPal but if I don't get any other communication from them in the next two weeks I will have to cancel the order and contact PayPal for a refund

Having heard nothing for over two weeks, and checking the Kickstarter site it looks like a sham, I have contacted PayPal for a full refund due to failure to deliver.

Wow you got one, how on earth did you actually get one?

I take it its a 3mm version and what voltage etc? How well does it function, any pictures, whereabouts are you located.
