RePrint Bot | NYU Tandon School of Engineering

RePrint Bot

ReprintBot is a project that will recycle used plastic bottles to make 3D printing filament. The goal is to design a prototype that works as a standalone system. It will include a shredder to cut the plastic, a filament extruder and a feed mechanism to transport the shredded material to the hopper, filament collection and retrieval to collect and coil the plastic, and a 3D printing system.
