    This is the purpose of Clip-Share. To share ideas like this. It is even pleasure to watch and should it should be elementary project at High schools with focus on mechanical engineering so every school can recycle and create own stuff. This is more valuable than any music video on Clip-Share. Google should give you some special honnor.

    I doubt i'd ever get into doing this but there are a few things i'd love to make if i did: one idea you guys (or someone) might make use of is the frame work to canvases for painters (or easel stand). The normal material is wood.

    I did an experiment last night with HDPE. By cooling it down fast, "quench" like steel, I made it twice harder to cut and wear off. Which could be a good thing to mention, if you want your product to last longer bring it close to melting point then cooldown fast in water.

  • Eastman Webb

  • Catherine Kuang 匡孙咏雪

    It's so exciting and inspiring to explore ideas like this! I and my classmates are currently working with the design of sustainable furnitures, how to utilize wastes generated by the community around us, and I think to use wasted plastics as raw materials for our furniture must be a perfect idea. But I have a question: when we heat the plastics, will there be toxic gas emissions which may still harm the environment?

    • Bethany Mann

      Hey Catherine! I don't know if you ever found an answer, but if you didn't they have a good video on safety and plastic fumes in the same playlist as this video! clip-share.net/video/bsj6qHHLynk/video.html

    Thanks for your video Dave. Could you put/send the temperature table you showed? maybe in excel? and... Is there a way to produce another table based on strength of each plastic type? for example, Fluency capacity or compression capacity, etc.? On the other hand, If I'd like to add some additive inside the plastic to maximize fire protection, what kind of additive you could recommend?

  • ForeverOfTheStars
    ForeverOfTheStars 7 years ago

    you should build a personnel smelting system to melt down metals like aluminum and then use those metals to build the molds or anything else. That way you are not only recycling plastics but metals as well. Making your system all the more environmentally friendly.

  • Blind Spot

    I love it from a maker standpoint, but I am a bit worried about creating microplastics with all the shredding and machining. What do you do to protect your lungs and prevent plastic particles escaping?

  • František Zvěřina
    František Zvěřina 5 years ago

    Wow that's awesome. I have some years of experience with industrial plastics injection, I never thought you could make it DIY as well. You should put that extruder vertically on a CNC frame and make a 3D printer thats using shredderd plastic!

    Hey there this is a great initiative. Keep up the good work. The only concern I have is when it becomes widely adopted. I haven't seen in any of the videos thus far instruction to label the plastic with the recycling standard codes. Thus if everyone is re-using the plastics. we will hit a plateau where we have no idea which plastic is which. Binding this initiative. Please add in the importance to denote which plastic the items are made from for future recycling efforts.
