Did you know we use our own Builder Premium 3D printers for production? Every Builder Premium is leaving the Builder HQ with a filament holder and filament guide. The filament holder is used to hang the filament spool and the filament guide to guide the filament into the Builder Premium without getting strangled. These parts are designed by Builder and are printed 24/7 on 5 Premiums Small to keep up with the demand.
How we do it
The filament guide, which you see on the right, is printed with black PLA with a layer height of 0.2 mm. The part is printed without support as the production of this part needs to go as fast as possible. The print time of a filament guide is about 58 minutes. To make sure we can print 24/7, without running out of filament too often, both extruders are filled with black PLA and both extrude 50%. Using both extruders on 50% enables us to use 2 kg filament instead of 1 kg and using the Dual-Feed extruder as a Mono extruder.
Do it yourself
What if one of these parts breaks? No problem. You can print them yourselve. Every Premium has a few standard G-codes in its memory and the filament holder and guide are 2 of them. Just simply press print and select the file you would like to print.
