We did it! 100% funds raised! THANK YOU SO MUCH! To everyone who supported me by donating as well as sharing my project with friends. I couldn't have done it without you guys! I will make sure to honor those who helped me as well as honor my word of making everyone a piece on my 3D printer! I also plan to keep everyone updated on the progress of my project, as it may take me, a full time college student, several months to complete. Thanks again for all of your support!

Thank you so much everyone for your kind donations. I am now 78% to goal which mean I can start looking at buying the parts and supplies necessary to begin my project! Also, if you donated don't forget to message me with what you would like printed!

I already built my 3D printer last year. Now I would like to become green and self sufficient to help reduce waste that may end up in a landfill! I will do this by building a plastics recycling machine aka a Filabot. These small but handy machines grind down old plastic scraps such as plastic remains from printing, water bottles, milk jugs, basically anything that is a made out of recyclable plastic can be reused as raw materials for my 3d printer. This allows me to reduce waste and cut down on my impact on our environment! So please help me become more eco-friendly and I will print you your own custom things, basically whatever you want! (within reason of course) Check out Thingiverse for some cool thing ideas you would want printed out. There are infinitely many things on there it will blow your mind! I have some of my own things on there including a printable and refillable dry erase board eraser which can be custom printed with YOUR  NAME ON IT! Coming soon- Two color printed things!

No printing of a part necessary for me, but I want to see this working when it's up and running.
