Design Features

Recycle Anything

ProtoCycler comes with a built in grinder. Printer messed up? Need to update your design? Just don’t like it? Grind it up and remake it, over and over and over, until it’s exactly what you want!

Colour, Like Never Before

Sure, you can order coloured filament. But what about that particular shade of blue you’re thinking of? Models that change colour throughout? ProtoCycler does all of this and more.

From Beginner to Expert

ProtoCycler is intelligently controlled and fully automated, for great filament every time – but manual mode, full documentation, and a support forum let you experiment with confidence.

Patent Pending MixFlowTM Technology


While our competitors use outdated industrial technology ill suited to anywhere but the factory floor, ProtoCycler was designed from the ground up for homes, schools, and makers. MixFlow™ eliminates the chance of a “frozen up” extruder, makes startup and shutdown a breeze, and allows us to extrude at 5 ft/min, minimum, with industry leading tolerances – even with PLA! Oh yeah, and it’s 10 times more efficient than our competitors. Did we mention it was a major breakthrough?

Pulling... It's Just Better

It’s faster. It allows better control on diameter. It even lets ProtoCycler know exactly how many feet of filament you’ve extruded so far, so it can spool your filament for you. Speaking of which…

Spooling. Because Hand Winding Sucks.

No one wants to extrude 1500 ft of filament, just to have to spool it by hand or with a drill. So ProtoCycler spools your filament for you, on any spool, big or small. You’re Welcome.

Do more than just recycle
