What is DevoTest?
DevoTest examines the processability of your material with our filament makers. Receive a detailed report from our material scientists about the extrusion performance of your custom material. Validating the material properties, while getting useful tips and tricks.
DevoTest offers various benefits for you:
Receive a detailed report, whether your custom material is processable by our filament makers.
Helpful steps to start producing on your own, or to keep experimenting with useful tips and tricks.
Spooled roll of your custom materials (~400 gram). Only possible, when DevoTest is successful.
A complete, all-in-one, extrusion test
DevoTest examines the processability of your materials. The report gives you clear guidelines and insights into the extrusion performance of your desired material.
This DevoTest consists of drying and extruding your standard virgin material in pellet/powder form into filament. Those standard materials are: PLA, TPU, PP, PA6/66/12, PETG, PC, ABS, PCL, PEEK, PEKK, PEI, PET, PPSU, PVA, TPE, POM, PE.
The DevoTest advanced consists of drying and extruding your complex material in pellet/powder form into filament. Complex materials are compounds with additives, regrinds, or recycled materials. Examples of DevoTests advanced are: PC/PEKK + additives, and PC + PTFE.
DevoTest advanced provides an optional step of shredding or compounding various materials into an uniform blend for the filament maker. Examples of recycling/compounding tests are: PLA + Woodchips, PP and ONYX recycling.

Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to send?
It is recommended to send at least 2 -3kg of your materials in powder/pellet form for extrusion. Besides that, our material specialists would appreciate a technical datasheet and processing temperature indication.
What do I receive in the end?
You will receive a detailed report about your material from our material scientists. The report describes the process from beginning to end, and gives helpful tips & tricks, and provides recommendations, warnings, pictures, guidelines to start producing filament on your own. If the DevoTest was succesfull by extruding low tolerance filament, you will receive a spool of filament (about 400 grams). However, sometimes it is not possible to find the perfect settings to extrude your filament.
Can I send multiple materials?
Yes! If the materials and additives have to blend together into a single uniform filament, this will be counted as one advanced material test. In case, you like to conduct multiple material tests, it is recommended to reach out to sales. For more information, please contact our sales team.
How long will it take?
After receiving your materials at 3devo, our material specialists strive to conduct the detailed material test in 2/3 weeks. For more details, please contact our sales team.
Will my material extrude?
Our material scientists and engineers strive to extrude high-quality filament. However, all polymers behave differently. Gladly our scientists have a vast amount of knowledge by conducting countless material tests. For personalized insights from our scientists, please contact our sales team.
What is a virgin material?
Virgin materials are previously unused raw materials, excluding regrinds, compounds with additives or recycled materials. Example virgin material tests are: PLA, TPU, PP, PA6/66/12, PETG, PC, ABS, PCL, PEEK, PEKK, PEI, PET, PPSU, PVA, TPE, POM, and PE.
What is a complex material?
Complex materials are regrinds, compounds with additives or recycled materials. Examples of advanced tests are: ONYX recycling test, PC/PEKK + additives, PC + PTFE, PP recycling.
