Filabot Turns Your Plastic Junk Into Material for 3-D Printers

January 17, 2013View for printing

Filabot promises to help turn your plastic crap into 3-D printed fanciness, alleviating one of the biggest sustainability problems for 3-D printing.

Just over a year ago, Tyler McNaney was on break from college. "I was surfing the internet as most college kids do, and I saw a video of 3-D printing," he says. "I was amazed and I learned all I could about it." Soon after, he owned one of his own. Not much longer after that, he decided he wanted to make his own filament for it. Sadly, he was low on cash. So he launched Filabot on Kickstarter.
