Abstract—The first part of the article shows the process of preparation of the material from bottles, also mechanical construction created mostly from 3D printed parts. The second part of the article shows an electrical and electronic system, that is responsible for temperature controlling, filament winding speed control, head cooling and heating. The third part of the article shows the filament creation process and machine operation. The last part of the paper shows experimental results, comparison of features and parameters, for example, temperature resistance, tensile strength test or physical structure with popular filaments available on the market.
