There are plenty of 3D printing pens now on the market but Daniel Edwards based in the UK has created a very unique kind of 3D pen called the Renegade. Which can recycle old plastic bottles and bags helping to reduce some of the waste that is being generated around the world and provide a great way to use your imagination.
Check out the promotional video below to learn more about the Renegade 3D pen which has taken to Kickstarter to raise £25,000 over the next 32 days to go into production and is available from £60.
We often use 3D printing for our projects and one day we finally got fed up with highly overpriced filaments. The plastic pellets used by manufacturers reach a maximum price of $0.6 per kg while the filaments they sell on to us can reach $200-250 per kg. After paying $100 for a 3D pen and being obliged to buy its filaments for $10 per 50 gram pack i.e. $200 per kg, we couldn’t help but think this is crazy!
At the same time we’ve all witnessed the mountains of used plastic bottles and bags that continue to critically pollute our environment. That’s how Renegade was born. The perfect solid tool to eliminate overpriced filaments and to save the environment by directly recycling and reusing household plastic waste for 3D printing. Renegade is not the smallest, thinnest, lightest or cheapest 3D pen in the world.
It doesn’t weld wires, burn wood, or cut through foam. And, it’s not in the Cloud. Renegade specialises in one thing, and one thing only – it prints 3D models by recycling your plastic bottles, files, and bags. It’s reliable, and it does it like a pro. Renegade instantly recycles plastic waste, replacing costly filaments. Draw in the air without limits – free of charge and pollution.
