Cheap capa in the USA
In the mean time I found a cheaper place than what's listed on the reprap Polymorph page.
The stuff from The Compleat Sculptor (28oz) was the lowest price, but must have changed prices since the reprap page was made, because now it's $41.99 for 28oz. I found a place that sells it cheaper than the other 2 places listed for the US also.
The nightmare factory, a costume and halloween store have a 28oz jar for $30.
I'm sure I'm not the only one that wants cheap material, so I thought I'd give everyone the link.
That's an extruder head made fore granules. I might do something like that or make a "recycle" machine to take granules or printed parts that are no good and extrude them into filament. It'll probably be similar to this design. That way we can use any plastic like cut up milk cartons and shopping bags for HDPE also.
I'll probably finish my cartesion system before I start any of this though.
If you're interested in this, you might want to start a topic on the forum. http://forums.reprap.org/
