Plastics Project

Plastic Recycling in the makerspace: We have two containers with machines to re-cycle plastic. It is based on the open-source designs from fab labs around the world. @RobVenus brought this about. This is a long-term project.

General Fabrication Process

  1. Grind the plastic (Parts of the machine are there, need to be assembled)
  2. Melt the plastic into sheets
  3. Use a Vacuum Suction Machine to suck it into form


  • Things in the yard need cleaning out so we can re-order the stuff in there.
  • Lights in the container - @Davidj is on it
  • build the machines (pretty vague)
