Large Format FDM Printing of Recycled Plastic Pellets: Closing Consumer Cycles in the fabrication of meso scale objects

Conference full papers:

Fused Material Deposition (FDM) is a widely used technology for desktop 3d printing which has the potential to close consumer cycles by printing recycled materials. However, its use in architectural scale applications has still to be further explored. This paper presents the design, construction and implementation of a 3d printing system of recycled plastic pellets. We describe the device, its systems and parameters, as well as the custom tool path calculations and material experiments. We argue for this technology as a viable way of implementing FDM on larger scales and identify key challenges that present themselves as we explore the fabrication of meso scale formal artifacts.
