Connecting materials with plastic

02/03/2017 at 17:04

Salut,

This week I made some crafty joints with wood and plastic, The more attention you put into the plastic the more value a material gets.

Importent that you can still take the two material apart so the cycle can continue for ever.

I will make some more little experiments in this channel.

Ciao

Yes, Nice! I love the ones with the extruder! Good you point out they should still be able to take apart afterwards. Hard part is to make the joint still strong enough, with that in mind.

@siemenc True the difficult part of that is to get it, but keep it strong.

I found a solution, wrap the material you want to connect in baking paper (at least 5 layers) and use the extrusion machine to put the plastic around the joint. I used hdpe and heated the machine a little higher than normal (settings 255 C front 240 C middle) so it melted well together.
After when it cooled down you can take out your material and build with it:)

I’m one of those people that will have to play first, understand later.

We are doing a community build day of our extruder tomorrow.
I might take some sticks and see if any of the people that attend can figure out a clever method! Everyone likes a challenge 🙂
