Print, Filabot, repeat: 3D printing gets greener
A common criticism of 3D printing is this: how much more plastic junk do we need in this world?
Filabot, a Kickstarted device that turns household and printed plastic into printable filament, might have the answer.
The brainchild of Tyler McNaney, a 20-year-old sophomore mechanical engineering student at Vermont Technical College, the Filabot takes common plastic, including plastic from 3D printed objects, and grinds, melts, and re-extrudes it back into printable feedstock.
