    Hi friend, The 3d printer filament from my Chinese factory is made from 100% virgin material . The link is: https://jinbohao.en.alibaba.com/productgrouplist-804198593/3d_filament.html?spm=a2700.icbuShop.0.0.124a66cb0MGsCl

    It's too bad they chose such a poor example as far as companies to profile.

    Seriously… go to the Better Business Bureau… search for MakerGeeks… they've had a D (F by now, for sure) rating for years now and a couple hundred complaints. The BBB has issued two press releases advising consumers to stay away and recently have actually started reaching out to YouTubers asking them to spread the word. Missouri Attourney General has stated that they have gotten multiple complaints and have been actively researching the situation for quite some time (layman's explanation that I was given… 'quite some time' more or less means they put a little more effort in to it so when they move forward there won't really be any room to contest it increasing the chance the judge will be reluctant to delay the case at all. … … …ie: it'll be a quick, clean kill.).

    But the thing I don't get, first yout drying the raw material that pigmentating is and all, but why are you cooling it with water? you are putting al the moisture back in the fillament again! See 3D4makers fillament, they are cooling with air and a realy dry facillity.

    I know exactly what you mean. I'm working in a company that produces 3d printing filament and I'm a main operator there. Sometimes 2-3 degree Celsius more or less can make the difference.

    Why is water used for cooling? Is air-cooling not fast enough at those production speeds or are there other reasons for this?
    Because normally it seems like a bad idea to hydrate filament…

    "It's odd when you google this- because it's just this void of information!" I´m working developing in a composite filament for medical implants, it is hard that you don´t find any information about but you feel great with any advance in the project

    Just getting a small Filastruder to reuse my failed prints and 3mm filament went from 3mm to 1.75mm less breaks and less problems with hotend breakdown/cooking filament…

    This only gives me more questions than it answers; He says that drying is important to remove water, and yet the last process is drowning the filament in liquid water for 30 feet. So if the moisture in the air can ruin filament… what is drowning it in water suppose to do?

    Obviously, I am missing something….. 😉

    I still dont get how you add blender ant it colors it. Blender won’t color the inside parts unless you melt all that together and mix properly again and only then send to extrusion

    Great video! Can you tell me what kind of color pigment is that? Can you share an ebay link?Thanks!!

    This is why I chuckle so much at all those desktop diy filament extruders that you see 1 or 2 videos on and then they vanish. None of them realize how important the cooling is after you extrude, it or have any clue how to properly pull it out.

    Guys, I love the quality of the filament.. but PLEASE , have better QC on spooling them. I keep having print failures because the filament is tangled up INSIDE the spool. I pretty much have to unspool and respool your filaments.

    Makergeek is a very good company. It has high quality filament and low price.

    the filament from makergeeks is great but the shipping and support is another story. bought 4 rolls to play with.. only 3 came, only 1 email response telling me that tracking showed that the box was at my house (to bad the box only had 3 rolls in it and not 4 like how i ordered and how i stated in my mails about i was missing 1.. that was the ONLY response from makergeeks my missing spool of filament was never shipped so i had to dispute the charge.
