    Well only thing that might be wrong is that you tell in the article that its 20% less than average filament,
    Since i have seen ABS pellets selling for about 1.5 euro a KG. And a average spool is about 20-30 dollars easily.
    (http://www.kwb-wedel.de/ example of such reseller of pellets)

    I would guess it would be quiet bit cheaper than 20% even with the eletricity costs.

    I really want to test one, but I'd need a 3 (2.8 to be more precise) mm version.

    My my this looks great.
    This is not restricted to pellets right ? I mean you can also recycle prints, plastic bottles .. Correct ?
    What kind of safety features do you include ? Auto cut off when Jammed or empty ?
    What is the diameter precision range/repeatability ?
    Regards

    As far as I'm concerned, it's incomplete without a winder, it's leaving half the project undone. There's little point in running a filament extruder without a way to take up & store the output. Any manual handling of the output causes jiggles at the nozzle.

    And please don't claim to be able to extrude PLA unless you actually show a good measure of PLA being extruded. Everyone shows footage of ABS being extruded, that's actually pretty easy. No one that I have seen has shown footage of their machine extruding PLA, and as such, I am dubious as to whether anyone can do it reliably with such a small machine as these hobby extruders.

    This looks great very smart design.

    I'm only just getting started with 3D Printing. I think ill be snapping one of these up when they become available on Kickstarter especially at that price thats very reasonable

    Very keen to see the Kickstarter when you launch it - this is just what I've been shopping around for this week (and NOT finding!).

    Looks promising, is your Kickstarter campaign going to be open to international backers? if so I hope you're investigating some good deals on international shipping.
    Also as JRDM pointed out, a winder would be a great addition.

    If these two needs can be satisfied, I will be one of your backers.

    The spec stated that :

    "Filament Tolerances: 1.75mm (+ .1/ – .1) & 3mm (+ .1/ – .1). with nozzle change."

    Is that a typo? Your competition claims +/-0.04 to +/-0.05mm at most.
