I've been looking all over to find first hand reviews on this one, thanks. Any info on when the rest of the equipment is ready to ship? I'm very interested in the complete package, with winder, opto-measuring and the lot. Do you have any idea on that?

Thanks for the pictures

I just received my FilaFab extruder & winder. However, no manual or any kind of setup instructions other that for the heater controller on the extruder.

@bolsoncerrado: did you get anything from them in the end?

Both as well, but no instructions rather than the PDF sent via email, which details the parts of the machine and that's all. Not really helpful at all, sincerely :(

The guy here is making a filament extruder along with a homemade filament puller utilising digital calipers
I have the filament extruder but no equipment for extruding the correct size (other than luck and gravity :p)
