Researchers at Michigan Technological University have created a plastic extruder that recycles discarded plastics into filament for 3D printing. Spools of plastic for 3D printing cost $30 a pop, so The Filabot Reclaimer could come in handy to many people who want to make their creative dreams come true. Also, you can recycle your bad prints for new projects. It hasn't hit the market but it is supposed to be in production with a price around $350.
