What To Do With All That Scrap
All of us wonder what to do with scrap plastic, and while the world tackles the challenge of re-filamentizing all those goodies, let’s remember there are good ways to use it. RichRap has invited everyone to make their own art out of melted PLA and submit the photos to his Thingiverse entry.
Here are the basics from his blog, and a few pics, including one version from 2ROBOTGUY.
You will need -
Scrap bits of PLA and any failed prints
Beer – (to help with artistic inspiration)
Lay the Aluminium foil on the tray and place your largest scrap parts onto it, don’t space them too much apart as they will produce a smaller pool of plastic than you would think.
Optionally use some filament to make a round or shaped outer ring to keep all the plastic in if you want a nice shape.
