Wound Up Filament - 3D Print with Recycled Coffee Grounds
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.
