Developer of the Ground-Up coffee filament, 3Dom USA, has just added a new material to their c2Composite line, partnering with bio-composite company c2Renew.
“Buzzed” is made from waste byproducts from the beer brewing process. “We get the byproduct from a local major label brewing plant. It’s stuff that would otherwise just be placed in a landfill,” CEO Jake Clark explains. “We specifically look to make useful supposedly unusable material.”
Unlike Wound Up, which does print with a natural sugary coffee scent, Buzzed will not leave your work area smelling like a corner booth after bar-close. However, the benefits of the material lie in its repurposing of bio-based material, its visible grain fragments and the natural color gradient on finished products.
Buzzed filament can be printed on any machine capable of printing with PLA and comes perfectly spooled on the 100% bio-based Eco-SpoolTM. Beautifully packed and vacuum-sealed to keep moisture out. Each spool of Buzzed has the diameter and ovality metrics posted right on the box, so you know that tolerances are tight.
The filament will be available for $ 49 per spool through 3Dom’s Website.
