Students create a machine that turns pop bottles into 3D printing materials

Comments Off on Students create a machine that turns pop bottles into 3D printing materials

Click here to view the embedded video. In an effort to reduce the environmental impact of their studies in 3D printing , three engineering physics students at the University of British Columbia have developed a desktop plastic recycler and extruder that turns plastic waste into new material. Although it’s not the only plastic recycler of its kind, it is unique in a few different ways. The most obvious difference is its size; the ProtoCycler is a desktop model, which takes up less space and is perfect for small-scale projects. It also looks a bit like a toaster. This desktop recycler is also considerably less expensive than similar products already on the market, making it more accessible for schools and universities to try their hand at 3D printing. Because it, by nature, turns waste into wanted materials, once the machine is paid for, it essentially provides 3D printing materials for free. + ProtoCycler, $699 pre-order, via www.redetec.com .
