Our other project created a tank made of 3D printed tread and joints, which reuse the filament spool. However, the tread wear out over the time, so we decided to explore a way to recycle our plastic waste into something cool
Tread close up
We mixed with other failed 3D printed parts to make a plate
Our makerspace generates a significant amount of waste every quarter:
We processed them using a modified planer and bake them
Shredded 3D printed parts
After baking process:
Then, we laser cut the plate with our logo to promote our makerspace!
After laser cut, we end up with more waste so they are reprocessed to make more plates!
