3D-Print your own (1.75mm) filament!
Please see other comunity makers "makes" they are truly incredible!
Please see the video for more information, and a proper look at these prints - The pictures don’t do the colors justice!:
Its sounds crazy, but it works! This technique will allow you to create one offs, and to color match your 3D-prints.
It works by changing the filament (and the color) of your filament while printing, and this causes a multi colored filament, that can be printed again to archive a homogenic-color.
Use 100% infill and turn off combing! – I’m still working on Slicer settings, since I still get wired travels in the middle, that make my filament less consistent. -Please share your slicer settings if you find something that works well!
When printing with the 3d-printed-fillament, you need to increase the flow, I had to increase it to 150%, but this number will vary from printer to printer, some experimenting is required.
There are 2 STLs, one that gives you around 7g of material, and one that gives you 30g.
Both are designed around a ~200x200mm print bed.
Update, added a ø110mm version for smaller 3d printers, it gives around 10g of meterial.-
This version is NOT tested! Update: thanks to Jepler this one is tested and confirmed working!
Thanks to All3DP for featuring this model on their website, check out their article here
Added a ø290mm version for 300x300 printers- This one is not yet tested.
Side note: If anyone need a custom sized filament for larger or smaller print beds, feel free to request it in the comments, and i'll upload one as soon as possible!

Added a 85mm version, this one is not tested, I made the smallest diameter as small as possible to give as much fillament as possible. The users will have to judge how printable the "center" part of the fillament is, and if it would jam theit extruder setup or not. the center part can be cut off to avoid jaming.
