Pecious Plastics: Open source machines for molding and extruding recycled plastics 2016-09-25

Open source machines for molding and extruding recycled plastics

    Material Used:
    Plastics
    I ran across this interesting website https://preciousplastic.com/en/machines/ about making your own plastic recycling machines such as an extruder, shredder, injection molder, and an oven/press for molding blocks all made of recycled materials. The machines are all open source and blueprints are downloadable. More info here for the machines. Precious Plastic I would love to try injection molding and may build this one.


    It made me think of what Serge was doing with the HDPE awhile back. How to recycle HDPE (bottles, caps, etc.) into sheets / blocks to CNC
