Cruncher 3D Print Recycler Chops up Unwanted Prints: 3R in 3D

 |  |  |  |  February 5, 2015


Whether through machine or user error, 3D printers turn out a lot of defective prints. ExtrusionBot wants to help personal 3D printer users get the most out of their materials with the Cruncher. It’s a desktop pellet mill that breaks down unwanted printed objects into small pieces. The fragments can then be fed into an extruder (such as ExtrusionBot’s eponymous product) to once again become 3D printing filament.

The Cruncher can munch on practically any 3D printed material as well as some plastics. Right now the device can only devour objects that fit into its 2″x 3″ safety chute, but ExtrusionBot is working on a chute that’s twice as big.

Feed ExtrusionBot at least $485 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a Cruncher as a reward. I bet ExtrusionBot will come up with a pellet mill and extruder combo soon.
