RECYCLING OF 3D FILAMENT




recycle 3d filaments
Turn your 3D printed waste into new spools using a 3D printer filament recycler. The typical recycler will smash failed prints into smaller pieces, melt them down, and force the liquid plastic through an opening. The hot plastic is then cooled down and coiled onto a reel.

The two most commonly used materials for at-home 3D printing are Polylactic Acid (PLA) and Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS).While PLA is recyclable, it cannot be recycled with other types of plastics because it has a lower melting temperature that causes problems at recycling centers.
