Bioplastics and New Materials for Digital Farbication

(Michele Turco) #1

Does Someone have tested new bioplastics filaments for 3d printing and new materials for digital fabrication

Yes we have used the TwoBears PLA and Silk pla and they are amazingly good…!
Their shop is under construction now but I’m sure you can find some more info online/youtube etc.
It’s well worth the extra money … it’s a really beautiful filament.
Good luck

we are testing different bioplastics for 3D printing coming mainly from industrial food waste and industrial hemp.

The green pieces are made from “Weed” (3d printing material from hemp inlforescence)…the brown pieces are made grom “Pruned” (3d printing material from pruning of orange).These materials are produced by Kanèsis (Italian company), and we are lucky enough to test some of them in preview

another interesting thing I’m trying to do, is the engrave and decorations on the 3D printed pieces

Good to hear! I am in search of bioelastomer/plastic for making shoe and boot soles, which has been very difficult to find in the US. I am looking at potentially large quantities, which makes it even more difficult for making large numbers of affordable boots/shoes.

Does anyone know of such a source?
Thank you!
