Three-dimensional Printer Plastic Filament Recycler

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ

A three-dimensional plastic printer recycler is a device that workers and students around the print their three dimensional projects and prototypes. These projects and most of the prototypes come with errors, so instead of wasting the plastic our team project is working on building a 3D printer plastic recycler.
