Easy way of joining filament together.


Cut a piece of aluminium foil in a triangular shape.( to concentrate more heat at the center and less heat at the ends)
Wrap the filament in the foil to form a tube around the two pieces. Heat up with PTC heater element of 230 degrees C(for ABS plastic).
Push together while heating. You will feel when the plastic is melting - remove from heat source. Let it cool down for a few seconds.
Remove the foil and you will have a perfect joint. The plastic must melt to have a nice joint - practice makes perfect.
