dc.description.abstract Attending the latest advances in polymeric fibers, the design of low-cost, and high-quality scientific equipment for obtaining fibers seemed essential. To overcome this challenge, a 3D printable prototype was designed, assembled, and validated to obtain fibers using the SBS method. The particular configuration of the prototype consisted of controlling the process conditions such as working distance and injection flow, as well as other parameters such as RPM and the axial movement of the cylindrical collector. Thus, these parameters were automated using a microcontroller (Arduino) that receives information from an Android device with bluetooth connectivity to control each of the elements of the equipment. Subsequently, the repeatability and reproducibility of the fibers was verified using polymers such as polystyrene (PS), polysulfone (PSF) and polyethylene oxide (PEO); furthermore, PSF fibers were manufactured to analyze the influence of working distance and the axial movement of the collector on their production.
