3D printing has been branded as a way to reduce the impact we have on our environment. However, most of the time we’re all too much familiar with a pile of failed prints, that negatively affect the environment surrounding us.
Here at 3D Hubs we want to stop this waste and change the way we produce things.
Together with our awesome mayors @CharlotteJ in Breda, @AtomJaay in Boston and @Charlotte @Cinter in London we will open up the first three recycling Hubs on the planet! They will collect the failed prints of their community and turn the waste into brand new filament. Then, you’ll even be able to print orders with fully locally recycled filament!
Help us change how 3D prints are made and support a waste free future! You can show your support for this campaign by sharing the biggest 3D printing fails you’ve ever produced. Leave a picture of these monstrosities as a comment on this post or share your pic on social with #REMAKE3D before September 9th. The 3 hubs with the most popular pics will receive a fully recycled spool of filament produced by Refil.
What to share? A picture of your failed print!
We can’t wait to see what the world of recycling has to offer. Make sure to gather your fellow hubs to join and maybe your community will even be asked to host the next recycling hub soon!
If you got all excited and happy about this and you’re looking to start recycling yourself, have a look at this Perk we offer if you’re a Hub on the platform!
