Milieux presents: Closed Loop 3D Printing Workshop with Keeley Haftner on Sept 28

Closed Loop 3D Printing is an introductory workshop into the exciting new field of recycled 3D printing. The workshop will begin with a brief visual presentation which will introduce types of 3D printing, materials participants can recycle, and the equipment being used in the workshop. Disposable cups will be collected, washed, dried and shredded to make shrapnel similar to plastic pellets. Using this shredded material, participants will extrude their own filament and experiment with some basic 3D printing. The process will form a closed loop, in which the participants can see material transform from disposable waste to a print of their own making. Failed prints, rafts, and other 3D printing waste can also be reprocessed into usable filament.

Wednesday, Sept 28 | 2 ­–5 PM
Milieux Institute at Concordia University
Resource Centre, EV 11-715 @ 1515 Sainte-Catherine W.

This workshop is suitable for makers ranging from beginner to expert level. Space is limited.

Sign up here.
