Making Crafts from 3d printer waste

————————————————

Designers Seongil Choi and Fabio Hendry have shown how to use waste product of 3D printers to make craft.  Their process build solid bodies from line structures.  They pass a wire through sand combined with nylon powder obtained from 3D printer waste.  Electricity is passed through the wire causing the wire to heat up.  The heat melts the nylon powder causing it to bond with sand and create solid shapes.  They have created several interesting shapes using this mechanism.
