Starting a map with worldwide development

10/06/2016 at 13:17

Hello everyone.
Good to see machines being developed and plastic being shred! Every know and then we see updates coming by all over the internet. We figured it would be nice to add them all on a map. This gives a good overview of all development and makes it easier for people to find each other locally.

However finding and sourcing the people that are building is quite difficult. Let us know if you are working on it or you know someone that is. Lets start and fill up this map!

Let us know in a reply your information and we will add your location!
Project name: (for instance; precious plastic London)
Location: (For the pinpoint on the map)
Topic URL: (The link of the forum topic where you share updates or a site with additional information) Make sure to post a few images with that.

[edit]As you can see we broke our previous map 🙁 BUT we are working on a waaaay better,advanced, cooler, prettier, smoother and more robuust one for V3, coming soon. Help us at next.preciousplastic.com

[edit 2] Closing this topic. The way better more advanced map is ready. Visit here and add your pin! https://map.preciousplastic.com/⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️

@davehakkens Could Leuven be on the map as well :)? Would be nice for communication on our Facebook. We’ll post our machines from the moment they are done! And there will be an artist who will “pimp” the compression moulder. I’m curious about that :p. We’ll keep you posted!

@ottof Hey, we are started to build the machines here in Belgium. But I was in Argentina for a year as exchange student, and I want to build the project there as well. We can stay in contact to start this in properly in Argentina? I was in Buenos Aires and have some usefull contacts there (host dad is in government for example)

Thanks for the invite! And good to see you are going forward. Would be really great if you could start a topic in our forums where you show your creations with some pictures and then use that topic to keep us updated. In this way we can link the pin to that topic url.

Thanks for your help @mattia-io
A Plan how I want to realise it is already in work.
In Germany I have found a manufacturer. In a few days he will send me more Informations about the price of 50 and 100 series. The idea is to make a big collective purchase order. So first of all I have to collect customers Europe wide. Than I have to find a way for delivery.
I now that the price is decisive so I have a lot of work for the next few days.
(The english language makes it more difficult for me but I give my best. I need 30 minutes for writing but learning by doing is almost the best)

Hi @davehakkens
the idea to start my own topic is great. The reason why I didnt wrote it in English is simple because I cant speak English so good and first of all I thought that I will sell the laser cutted parts only in germany. Yeah but i have changed my considerations and now I want to sell the parts Europe wide. Because of this I will change the content into English. (English is simply better I now ;-))
A detailed plan is already in work. So I have a lot of work for the next few days.

@mr-hirn this is absolutely great.
I know a lot of people that are a bit lost when it come to how they can get those parts. I will share you site with them if that’s ok with you.

Do you already have contacts with local manufacturer?
How do you plan to maintain prices low?
What about delivery, that will also add to prices.

Not criticizing just trying to help with some feedback.

But can I suggest that ‘Project name’ is not ‘Precious Plastic ’ but instead the name of the person/organisation

yes, that was just an example. You can name it whatever you like.
And would love to have member profiles connected based on location, good idea. Now we need to find a good web-developer to fix that!

thanks @dauntless your location is added on the map.
Would be great if you could start your own topic where you post updates and developments. In this way people can follow/learn/help and we will use that url as a reference.
Either way good luck!

Another thought, everybody’s profile has a location associated with it, can this be somehow included on the map? It could enable people who have not yet started building, or are perhaps just interested, to better find each other and collaborate.

Ciao Marcello,
sono molto interessato al progetto dello shredder e dell’estrusore.
Tu a che punto sei della realizzazione?
Ti sei già fatto realizzare i vari pezzi? altrimenti ci uniamo per fare un unico ordine.

Mi farebbe piacere scambiare un pò di info con te.
Fammi sapere cosi ti invio anche i miei contatti.

Grazie
Buona serata
Vincenzo
