Discarded Parts


  1. I am considering acquiring a 3D printer and fascinated by the level of detail you have achieved in your design. Unlike many you show a picture of discarded material - can I ask what you do with it, is it reuasable or recyclable?

  2. I don't know what to do with it yet. This picture actually shows parts discarded through the design process. I have another bag filled with scrap that was support material, the true scrap by-product of the printing process. I may put it in my recycle bin. I wish I could reshape it, and reuse it myself.

  3. It can be recycled by grinding it up and then reflowing it into filament again, although I believe it can only be melted a limited number of times.
    When granule extruders become more widespread in the reprap community it will be possible to skip the reflowing.
    Granule is also a cheaper way of purchasing ABS.
