What about recycled plastic?

Yes, it is possible to extrude recycled plastic. Our advice is that you grind it down to granule size and mix it 50/50 with recycled ABS pellets for best results. We are currently prototyping a shredder for this very purpose so that you’re able to grind plastic packaging, disused prints etc and print with them. This is designed to sit alongside the rest of our product line-up, giving you the infrastructure of an independent recycling unit. Read more about the Recycling Shredder here.
