“Tyler McNaney’s ‘Filabot’ will break down failed projects as well as many other plastic items from traditional manufacturers, turning them into a filament you can then feed through a 3D printer. ‘So far the plastics that work are HDPE, LDPE, ABS, NYLON. More to come on the different types that work.’ McNaney sees it as a ‘closed-loop recycling system on your desk.'”
I like this idea… I already save my beer bottles for homebrewing, why not transform various plastic containers into useful items at home too? p.s. someone get me the parts for a RepRap.
