3D Printed Furniture from Recycled e-Waste

3D Printed Furniture from Recycled e-Waste.

After watching endless videos of home 3D printers creating little plastic parts, readers seem to just eat up watching big giant 3D printers; for example one of our most popular articles is about 3D Concrete Printing for Construction. Well, we’ve got another “giant” treat today for those who like to watch 3D printing on a massive scale.

Dirk Vander Kooij, winner of the 2011 Dutch Design Award, has ingeniously reprogrammed an old industrial robot to extrude ground up and melted plastic from recycled electrical appliances like refrigerators, turning them into a tables and chairs. It’s just a surreal process to watch.
