3D Print your Daily Brew

A2K Technologies September 30, 2015 Technology No Comments on 3D Print your Daily Brew

No, no! Not printing food waste.. but printing with food waste!ЛИАНЫ

Particularly, coffee grounds.

Well, you’re in luck. A 3D-printing materials manufacturer, 3Dom, has recently been printing with old coffee grounds.

The company has called their invention Wound Up. The filament is made using waste byproducts from coffee.
It comes in a biodegradable spool that can be used in any 3D printer that uses PLA materials, and produces 3D prints that are grainy and dark brown.

And while the end product doesn’t smell much like coffee, according to 3Dom, when “the object is being printed, there is a very distinct, sweet coffee aroma”.

We’re turning meta.
