ΣThe Green 3d Print


According to Dr. Joshua Pearce, ” he is the professor at Michigan Technological University, “The Professor has worked to develop Eco-friendly techniques for 3D printing.  His technique reduces carbon footprint.  Professor Pearce has developed a “Recyclebot” to create plastic filament using recycled milk jugs.  3D printers use this material for creating structures.   His study found that using recycled materials at home to create filament uses one-fortieth the amount of energy it would take to create it commercially”.
