Ask Me Anything
This topic is for you community. The place to ask me anything.
Favorite project, best holiday, what motivates me, what time I wake up, if i know square-dancing, everything goes here.
Have a look through the older questions ones because I won’t answer the same twice.
Shoot your questions 🙂
Just wondering how you found your time at DAE?
I went to the open day there a few weeks ago and it seemed amazing! Also do you have any tips for the application procedure?
Thanks for being a great inspiration!
Hello from Los Angeles! I think your machine tutorials are amazing. Unfortunately I’m not very skilled in the construction aspect of “Precious Plastic”.
Here’s my question: If I can get the plastic to a similar size and density as the shredder produces, then theoretically I wouldn’t even need a shredder…right?
Dave, I always admiring your works!
One question I want to ask you. Do you feel interested in paper waste recycling?
If you do, I will feel very excited if I can help you to brainstorm the idea.
Q: There is one word in the English language that is always pronounced incorrectly. What is it?
When I am next in the Netherlands (in June) down from Panama, can I visit your workshop???? For even more live inspiration??? Or are you way too busy?
Me and my friend and pro partner are in love with your machine ! In our Parisian atelier we are trying to build this amazing machine !
First of all, the shredder : we need to cut the steel elements but it is so expensive here in France ! (about 700e) we can not afford if
So my question is do you have a not so expensive contact for the laser cut ? Maybe in you country is not as expensive as in ours ? or any idea how to do it for the lover price ?
Thank you very for all you good tips and for the machine !!
@nonkonform Do you know rainbow gatherings? Do you like to have a clown nose?
@surya421999 Hey Dave! Do you have any video’s of using the compression machine? If so please share with me. 🙂
Working on more examples!
@valenbalcazar Hey Dave, Im planning to build the extrusion machine, but I couldn’t find the specifications of the motor (I know it has to be about 70 RPM but I need to know its power and torque), would you help me to choose the right one?
Sorry man, i’m not able to help out everyone individually. That’s why we have this online community, i’m sure that many people around here can help you out! Start your own topic and get going
@taivans Have you been to Mongolia? If not will you visit since I am starting the PP project here soon. #wishlist
Never been, its somewhere on the to-visit-list though, good luck!:)
hi Dave , i want to oppen my project in tunisa i need your contact plize
i need help anser me plize
Hey Dave! Do you have any video’s of using the compression machine? If so please share with me. 🙂
Do you know rainbow gatherings? Do you like to have a clown nose?
@milk Do you have a section in the community for Documentation/Written-tutorials/stuff to read?
Not yet, currently we are more focussed on video. WOuld always be great to have additional option, but we simply haven’t got the manpower to organise that.
@patrickr When next your are in Africa or Asia ask of organic shampoo (no chemical additives). they are really good.
Not a questions but I appreciate the tip
@dtremmel Then I ask you: do you know another process for PET recycling instead of the heating one?
You can work with PET on a small scale, however its much easier to progress for the industry. Just to make life easier I would suggest to start of with another type of plastic. Also because if there would be any plastic recycling going on already on an industrial level, it would probably be PET. There is more work to be done on PE and PP.
@kishoregandhi So please help me out , I promise to be delegated at work .
Sorry man, i’m not able to help out everyone individually. It should be clear watching our videos, if you still have any questions feel free to post a topic in our forum.s Good luck! 🙂

Am Arthur from Uganda-Africa, i had an idea or suggestion.
Since you guys hv a lot of e-waste than Africa than u can produce the machines cheaply, how about you make a ready to assemble machine like a shredder parts machine than we can buy at a cheaper price at the sametime contributing to your mission.
Hi Dave how are you? I woek in a optic store so i collect the demo lenses and the case bags i want to know what type of plastic is that and how can i turn them into recycled products .?
What can we do with the PET resin? I haven’t seen any thing made from PET
I live and work in the US and am working with a local neighborhood association to acquire land to put a Precious Plastics MakerSpace on. I am in search of information from those that have done something similar or at least in process of using machines. Basically not wanting to have an area become a dumping ground for local plastics.
In general, am looking for help with the following:
* How much space is required around MakerSpace so doesn’t become overwhelming in small space and have room to work?
* How do you collect plastic to ensure doesn’t become local dumping ground?
* What types of plastic do you collect- at least to start out with? (is it limited to only plastic bags, etc.)
*How much plastic should be expected on a weekly basis and how much can you process with one machine?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi! I’m a peruvian interior design student. I have a project in way, it basically is a pen made by cocoa. I saw that you had a similar project, which is pretty cool because I am struggling making the mold, I hope you can help me with some advices. You work it’s so cool! i like it 🙂
Hi am from india any ptojet here ?
Hola Dave, un abrazo.
Es un orgullo personas como tu.
Quiero comentarte que vivo en Mitú, Vaupés Colombia, es un lugar hermoso lleno de selva en el corazón de la amazónia.
Es un lugar apartado y sólo se puede llegar por avión, toda la comida la llevan en avión, pero nada de lo que se lleva se recicla o regresa, estamos creando una montaña de basura.
Luego de ver tus ideas y proyectos me enamore de la idea de hacerlo en Mitú, he tratado de buscar en Colombia quien hace las maquinas, pero no he encontrado a nadie,
Es posible comprarlas directamente con usted?
O tienen algún contacto para comprarla?
Mil gracias, gracias por lo que haces.
Good day Dave, could you please help me with where i can get the file to make the winder.
Hi Dave I am Mihai hope you are well and again nice job with everything you are doing!
My question is, is it possible to make out of recycled plastic using the machines above bigger and longer objects, I am interested into making pillars, let’s say 1,5m in length and about 5-10 cm in diameter. Do you have in idea about that?
Can I recycle thin plastic like plastic bags , packing plastic , in extrusion machine which discover by you
I want to build extrusion machine like u and recycled plastic bags in to plastic bars
Can I do that😅 plzz help me😃
Hi Dave, what if I want to buy a shredder machine from you? I ma based in Zambia.
