Filafab recycles plastic for 3D prints

D3D Innovations has developed a product to create filaments for 3D printing. Most 3D printers use off-the-shelf plastic filaments but the FilaFab Plastic Extruder can take fresh or recycled plastic and turn it into a high quality filament that can be used with most FFF 3D printers. 

The company claims that users can save up to 90% on the cost of ready-made filament. It’s an inherently eco-friendly approach as it can recycle plastics from bottles and cartons to containers and used enclosures and even old 3D prints.

There are two models available, the Pro 100 for £749 and the Pro 350, which costs £1299. Both have metal bodies and can be self-assembled or bought as a fully assembled machine. They’re small enough to fit on a desktop and include a powerful motor drive and interchangeable nozzles.
