Dai tappi di plastica riciclati alla stampa in 3D usando gli strumenti dei Makers

Maker Faire visitors will experience 3D printing from plastic caps using a new process that we have mathematically studied and validated through hundreds of hours of experimentation. This process will be used in two African hospitals in the Congo and in Uganda to produce vital spare parts, and prosthetics using non-industrial devices within the reach of the Makers. Through this new process that we make open source you can reuse HDPE plastic waste (e.g., caps, hoses, ...) at the household level for 3D printing.

Dai tappi di plastica riciclati alla stampa in 3D usando gli strumenti dei Makers

Giuseppe Santangelo, Fabio Topani, Claudio Becchetti a nome del gruppo Making 3D Printer for 3D World

The digital manufacturing process has been designed and developed by Giuseppe Santangelo (filament production), Fabio Topani (3D printing and modifications to 3D printers) and Claudio Becchetti (mathematical study to identify the correct production conditions) that are engineers-professionals with a wide experience in various industrial and scientific areas. Further experiments are in progress at the University of Roma Tre (prof. Federica Pascucci).
This project is part of the wider Crowd4africa project created by a team of 20 volunteer professionals (engineers, professors, doctors, entrepreneurs, ....) who dedicate their free time to support students in advanced technical courses and in tec-humanitarian projects. From four years the volunteers t design and build innovative technology courses for young people. Last year, for example, the course Making Drones, present at the Maker Faire 2015, taught to 60 students to build and fly their own professional drone.
