Strooder is a Desktop Plastic Filament Maker. It makes plastic filament from pelletised raw or recycled plastic. This makes Strooder perfect to tackle waste perception from within people’s homes. It enables 3D printer users to build more colourful, more versatile and sustainable 3D prints.
Pellets can be bought at only a fraction of the cost of pre-made filament (on average 3 times less expensive) and Strooder happily transforms them into filament from the press of a button.
Founded in 2013 by David and Gregory whilst studying at University, they launched their Kickstarter campaign with great success. The campaign raised its goal of £20,000 in just under 11 hours and went on to achieve over £64,000 over its full 30 day campaign. This allowed OmniDynamics to complete design for manufacture and find a UK based manufacturing partner. They have gone on to order the parts for the first 50 units, tested and delivered the first 10 Strooders to their early backers.
3D printing is in rapid growth going from 244,533 units sold wordwide at the end of 2015 to a projected 5,600,000 sales by 2019. Up to 97.5% of these printers use plastic filaments. The Strooder will be retailed at £399.99 (Exc VAT)
