Filabot – Plastic Filament Maker
An idea that most people engaged with the world of 3D printing has imagined at some point or at least wondered when “somebody” will deal with the waste generated by these machine and in fact the plastic waste from our daily western existence. The project by Tyler McNaney has just reached its target for funding on Kickstarter. Well done Tyler!!
His text: “Filabot is a 3D plastic extrusion system. For example mostly any type of recyclable plastic, such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, soda bottles, shampoo bottles, product packaging, and many more, can be processed through the Filabot to make usable 3D printing filament. This will allow for users to remake filament from an old print that is bad or not needed. The Filabot will grind, melt and extrude the plastic filament. It is a one stop shop for all the filament you could ever need”.
