Yesterday we took the finished fusionX extruder to The Brighton Studio to capture it on video and in still photographs. We rented the studio space and a videographer, and our team member Katie manned the stills camera. Our aim was to get some clear images, in order to best represent a product we’re really excited to be releasing. Working on a project for this long, it’s important to have it shown in a way that does the craft justice.
But you won’t understand this new machine just by seeing its exterior. To know the real benefits of this extruder, it’s essential that you get to know the interior of it. The development of the fusionX extruder is centered on the mixing process, which has resulted in a one-of-a-kind design. This machine is simple to take apart to remove and replace the parts to configure the mixing process, so we have shown this off in the video. Below you can see the blending blades that we’ve been hinting at in the past few months. They come in different shapes and sizes and are made of hardened steel. The shapes determine the nature of the mixing. The way the material passes down the screw is reliant on this configuration.

The fusion X extruder is set to be released in the next few weeks. We’ll notify our newsletter subscribers first, so make sure you’d on the mailing list!
