3D printing has made it possible to develop the prototypes for any upcoming product with accuracy and effective design. Generally plastic is used as a material for manufacturing the parts using 3D printers. The problem associated present machine is the cost of filaments and hence modifications are needed in the present machines in order to make the products better. We have designed a filament making machine with Polylactic Acid (PLA) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene and Styrene (ABS) as a material. These materials have good melting point. The modification in the present machine enables the making of filaments. It helps in cost saving for the small industries and workshops. Different diameters of the filaments can be produces with the design suggested by us. We have presented the CAD design and calculations of the design in this paper.
