|Project Summary||Project Information|
The student makerspace at the RIT Construct provides 3-D Printing solutions for students and faculty. Currently, there is a great deal of waste involved in the 3-D Printing process, in addition to lack of recyclable material. Consequently, an improvement to the current process is required. The goal of this project is to develop a filament extruder that can accept recycled material as well as new raw material. It's essential that the filament is spooled at a specific diameter and that the system is safe and easy to use.
