Fri, Jul 4th, 2014 10:00 by capnasty NEWS

Using consumer waste made of PET plastic as its printing material, the EKOCYCLE Cube, a 3D printer by 3D Systems, quite literally uses waste to churn out its creations. According to the website, in small print, using light grey on a white background, each printer cartridge contains "25% of post-consumer recycled materials, using an average of 3 assorted recycled 20oz PET plastic bottles."

Exclusively printing in post-consumer waste, the EKOCYCLE Cube 3D printer recycles what you use, so you can remake into new, meaningful, beautiful and better things.
