PET* drying cabinet
It occurs to me that PETE is one of the most abundant and easily recyclable plastics there are, but that as far as I’m aware, no-one has addressed the fact that PETE absorbs moisture easily, and loses strength if extruded while still holding water. As such, I think making an affordable version of the industrial drying method would be advantageous to getting higher-quality plastic out of recycling efforts. I have some information detailed here: https://hackaday.io/project/163917-recycling-household-plastic-for-3d-printing/log/160031-trouble-with-moisture
I’ll be working on the design for it over the next week or so, but it seems that a similar device would be wise to implement into Precious Plastics
