Lyman Filament Extruder II...

Inventors rule!

Most low-cost 3D printers use ABS plastic filament as the raw material from which they produce objects.  This raw material costs ten times what ABS costs in its more common form: pellets.  So Inventables sponsored a contest, with a $40,000 prize, for a low-cost machine that would turn ABS pellets into ABS filament.  Hugh Lyman won the contest with his Lyman Filament Extruder II, at right.
