Extruder Screw Model

Jeshua Lacock

Dear SCADHeads,
       
Anyone interested in creating a parametric extruder screw like the following?

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:48589


Ideally it would have a feed zone, a compression zone and a metering zone. Bonus for an optional Decompression and Second metering zone. See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic_Extrusion


Anyways, if you think you can do this in OpenSCAD feel free to contact me off list and give me an idea how much it would cost. Note that eventually I plan on making the work open source and would be attributed.


Thank you,

For direct printing or to produce filament for printing?

Thanks for the interest Kevin!

I would like it to be versatile for filament to the big 4"+ extruders...
