Improving Lives Through 3D Printing


In 2013 we took plastic that was once floating in the ocean and turned it into the feedstock for 3D printing. After winning the RCBC Innovation award we proudly made the technology open sourced for any one to use and/or improve upon.

It’s our goal to empower disadvantaged people around the world with 3D printing. When we turn the plastic they collect into items to sell or utilize they get exponentially better value. We envision a world where anyone can collect plastic to use as the resource for there own micro-manufacturing business. This is how we truly make plastic waste too valuable to ever throw away.
