Hallo & "Apa Khabar"…. from Penang, Malaysia :)
Hallo everyone 🙂
I am Shidi, from Penang, Malaysia, a bioplastic researcher, currently developing a prototype of recycled plastic mixed with agricultural wastes. I am open for collaboration and interested to promote the recycled products from all members in this community.
Attached photo is the compounded pellet of agricultural waste mixed with recycled LDPE that I am working on. I am planning to collaborate with anyone here offering filament maker service for my 3D printing projects. Do contact me if anyone interested.
Great idea from Dave Hakkens to make this Precious Plastic project up to this stage, keep it up & keep in touch !
Hola Olivier 🙂
Thank you for your welcome greetings 🙂
FYI, my bioplastic prototype is made from Rice Husk (agricultural waste) + Saw Dust (rubber tree wood mill waste) + recycled LDPE. This is my 2nd batch prototype and still under research, evaluation and material performance testing.
I am looking forward to convert these bioplastic pellets into Filament for 3D printing usage. If 3D printed prototype succeed, later on we can sell it online in near time and give some donations to our community for future development.
Since you are senior in this community, appreciate if you could recommend anyone here offering filament service to convert my bioplastic pellet materials into filament for 3D printing usage. I will bare the shipping cost, send materials and filament service cost.
At the same time, I will keep looking for networking with specialize in filament maker in our community.
* Its 12.45PM here in Penang, I’m off for lunch, will be right back 🙂
Keep in touch Olivier !
@superinsi Sounds like a great project, unfortunately, I don’t know of anyone currently working on 3D filament in the community.
I made a custom extruder for PLA filament research and I’m currently working on improving my filament tolerances, but even if I wanted to help you, we are on opposite sides of the world 🙁
Considering how much have you advanced on your research, why don’t you try building your own extruder, or purchasing a FilaStruder? That would make your research a lot easier.
Thanks for the info olivier, useful for newbie. Yeah I found that shipping cost higher than making DIY filament extruder, will try to fabricate it.
Keep in touch 🙂
