Wound Up Filament - 3D Print with Recycled Coffee Grounds

3Dom Wound Up Coffee Grounds 2 889x500

3D printing is on the rise in the United States and world wide, and if you want to use some eco-conscious 3D ink or filament so far you’ve been out of luck. 3Dom  – one of the largest manufacturers of filament for 3D printing – has teamed up with biocomposite developer c2renew to bring the filament made from recycled coffee grounds. How does it work?

Wound Up is a coffee filled 3D printing filament made using waste byproducts from coffee. Wound Up uses those coffee left-overs to create a special 3D printing material with visibly unique print finishes. The filament produces products with a rich brown color and a noticeable natural grain. There’s also a video available about Wound Up here.

So remember if you print a coffee cup with Wound Up it’s really a coffee cup through and through.

Thinking how awesome the smell would be while printing.

This looks really cool and I'm glad they are reusing the coffee for something other than insulation.
