Since our inception, 3devo has been at the forefront of 3D printing technology. Our revolutionary Filament Maker and GP20 Plastic Shredder and granulator have revolutionized how people experiment and develop new materials for 3D printing. We've empowered educational institutions, public labs, and innovative teams to unlock the full potential of 3D printing. But we're not stopping there.

Our Filament Maker is a precision instrument that enables you to transform raw thermoplastic materials into high-quality 3D printing filament. It utilizes a precise extrusion process, carefully controlling temperature, pressure, and diameter, resulting in filament with consistent dimensions. This ensures that your 3D prints are accurate and reliable. The Filament Maker is equipped with advanced sensors and control systems, making it suitable for experimenting with a wide range of materials, from PLA to ABS and beyond.

The GP20 Plastic Shredder Hybrid is a powerhouse designed for efficient plastic waste processing. It features a robust shredding mechanism capable of reducing plastics into small granules. These granules can then be fed into the Filament Maker for recycling, reducing waste and contributing to a more sustainable 3D printing process. The GP20 incorporates cutting-edge blades and a high-torque motor to handle various plastic materials, including tough thermoplastics. Its granulation process ensures consistent feedstock for filament production.


Who We Are: Empowering Your 3D Printing Innovations

Innovation at Light-Speed At 3devo, innovation is in our DNA. Our journey began with the Filament Maker and GP20 Plastic Shredder Hybrid, but it didn't stop there. In this blog, we delved deeper into our commitment to pushing the boundaries of 3D printing technology.

After the success of our initial prototypes, we made it our mission to create products that comprehensively covered every aspect of the filament extrusion process. This led to the development of the SHR3D IT plastic shredder, a pivotal step in our innovation journey. This shredder later evolved into the all-new GP20 Plastic Shredder Hybrid, a cutting-edge solution that continues to redefine the 3D printing material preparation process. We also introduced the Airid Polymer dryer, an innovation that significantly enhances the quality of 3D printing filament.

While 3D printing has come a long way, there are still challenges to overcome. Material limitations, sustainability concerns, and technical barriers are just a few of the issues that the industry faces. At 3devo, we see these challenges as opportunities—opportunities to innovate, to improve, and to redefine the boundaries of what's possible.

Material Limitations: A Challenge Turned Opportunity

One of the most significant challenges in 3D printing is the limited range of materials available. However, with our Filament Maker, we're breaking down these barriers. We offer the tools and knowledge to customize enhanced 3D printing filament, providing a competitive advantage to our customers.

Sustainability: The Green Revolution in 3D Printing

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword for us; it's a commitment. Our products transform filament extrusion into a closed-loop circle, contributing to a more sustainable future.

Technical Barriers: Simplifying Complexity

3D printing can be technically challenging, but our products are designed to simplify this complexity. Our support platform is full of guides, extrusion resources, and useful tips. Plus, we have a live support team ready to assist you at any time.

Navigating the Cost Challenge

The challenges surrounding cost extend beyond 3D printing and encompass filament extrusion and sustainable plastic recycling—a broader perspective on the 3D printing industry. While 3D printing holds the promise of sustainability and efficiency, the overall expenses involved can be a significant deterrent. The production costs for 3D-printed objects often far exceed those of traditionally manufactured products, with discrepancies sometimes reaching 10 to 100 times higher. This cost conundrum, driven primarily by material expenditures, is a common obstacle faced by industry players.

Simplifying the Technical Complexities of Material Extrusion

At 3devo, we understand the magnitude of this challenge and are strategically positioned to address it. Through innovative approaches, especially in material recycling, we aim not only to boost sustainability but also to reduce the expenses linked to resource materials potentially. This endeavor has the potential to make 3D printing, filament extrusion, and sustainable plastic recycling more affordable, enabling a transformative shift in manufacturing practices.

In the world of 3D printing and material extrusion, navigating the technical intricacies can often feel like venturing into uncharted territory. At 3devo, we are dedicated to simplifying this intricate journey for our clients, making it more accessible, manageable, and ultimately, more rewarding. Our approach to simplification encompasses various facets, each aimed at providing a smoother path from concept to creation.

Streamlined Product Design

The first step in our mission to simplify the 3D printing process lies in product design. We believe that an intuitive design can significantly enhance the user experience. From the outset, we focus on how to make our equipment approachable, ensuring that the impression users get from the outside is one of ease and user-friendliness. But don't be fooled by appearances; beneath the surface, we're tackling complex technical challenges to make the overall experience as seamless as possible.

Intuitive User Interfaces

The second layer of simplification revolves around user interfaces. Interacting with our devices should be straightforward, even when dealing with intricate technical operations. We invest in user-friendly interfaces that empower our clients to harness the full potential of our technology without being bogged down by technical jargon or complexities.

Empowering Through Education

Education with Filament Maker


Beyond the hardware and software, we believe that education plays a pivotal role in simplification. We provide comprehensive guidance to our clients, not only about our products but also about the broader journey of material extrusion and 3D printing. We equip you with the knowledge and insights needed to plan your projects effectively, source materials, prepare them, execute successful extrusions, and finally, commence 3D printing.

By breaking down this process into manageable steps and offering clarity and oversight, we empower our clients to navigate what might seem like a complex landscape with confidence. We firmly believe that when you know the steps, the process becomes remarkably straightforward.

At 3devo, our commitment to simplification is driven by the belief that true innovation should be within reach for everyone. We strive to eliminate the barriers that often deter individuals and teams from exploring the full potential of 3D printing technology. Our mission is to provide you with the tools, knowledge, and support you need to turn your ideas into reality and push the boundaries of what's possible in the world of 3D printing.
