Filabot are so confident that their machine, which turns rubbish plastic into filament, produces a high quality product that they are now selling the filament made by the Filabot Core on their online shop.
Filabot have clearly identified their market, the current crop of makers out there are the types who are conscious about the environment, they want 3D printing to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
The additive manufacturing process should mean, in theory, that less material is used than subtractive manufacturing. However anyone who has used a 3D printer knows how much landfill they tend to create as the printer fails half way or prints something that doesn’t quite live up to expectations.
By purchasing Filabot’s filament one can rest assured, safe in the knowledge you’re being as eco-friendly a 3D printing practitioner as possible. You can even send your empty spools and failed prints back for Filabot to re-use in return for a money-off voucher, optimum Captain Planet powers.
The colours of filament currently available, which are made from old bits of Leginclude red, yellow, orange, blue, green and purple. They come in either of the standard sizes, 1.75mm or 3mm.
Filabot are a lean, mean, Polar Bear saving machine!
