They are made from basic materials, affordable & easy to build.

Features

Modular

The machines are made of different components that can be repaired, replaced, or customized.

Open source

The blueprints and tutorials for our machines will always be freely available online, for anyone to access and use.

Inclusive

By using basic materials, tools, and universal parts, the machines can be built all over the world.

Build yourself

We've created a series of video tutorials that are easy to follow and help you get started building the machines.

Shredder machine

Plastic waste is shredded into flakes which will be used in the other machines to create new things. You can select the output size of these flakes by changing the sieve inside the machine to create different patterns and processes.

Extrusion machine

Extrusion is a continuous process where plastic flakes are inserted into the hopper and extruded into a line of plastic. These lines can be used to make new raw materials such as 3d printing filament, make granulated plastic, spun around a mold, or used in your own new and creative ways.

Injection machine

Plastic flakes are heated and injected into a mold. It’s a relatively quick process which is well suited for creating small objects repeatedly. You can make the molds completely yourself by using CNC mills or lathes, or by simply welding them.

Compression machine

Plastic is heated inside the oven and slowly pressed into a mold with a carjack. Well suited for making large and more solid objects, the oven itself is also a great machine for prototyping and making plastic tests with.

Build them yourself

We share all the information you need to build them yourself, or perhaps with the help of a local handyman.

The machines are made with basic tools and materials that should be easily available, wherever you live.
