Reuse Plastic for 3D Printing Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
3D printing plays a significant role in many projects at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). Currently, the WPI Makerspace does not have an effective means of recycling waste material from 3D printing. To address this issue, the team designed an inexpensive proof- of-concept system that repurposes waste PLA into filament. The system produced printable recycled filament with diameters relatively close to commercial spools. The team also developed recommendations for future system improvements.
