How to Recycle Cardboard into Anything with 3D Printing via @XYZAidan

How to Recycle Cardboard into Anything with 3D Printing

Paper is an incredible material, but why does it always have to be flat? I’ve developed a process to turn paper into a three-dimensional material, using as little as a 3D printer, a blender, a vice, and pinch of rice.

The resulting material has the texture of paper, but is as hard and rigid as plastic, moldable into an infinite variety of shapes, and completely biodegradable.

I put a ton of work into this project and video, and I hope it shows. My biggest hope is that this project inspires people and makers to explore new uses for our everyday waste materials and find new substitutes for plastic. I’ve only scratched the surface of this topic, so by sharing my work, I hope I pave the way for others to continue it. If this project has inspired you in some way, please share your ideas and keep the cycle going.
