IS 3D PRINTING ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?

What would you say? 3D printing is still a rather unknown field for many, but it is an extremely advanced modern technology that enables solutions in many areas.

It is a fact that especially in the last century, pressures on the environment have been increasing, so the need for systematic environmental protection has increased significantly. Could 3D printing offer a solution? Which filament to choose?

WHAT ABOUT 3D PRINTING AND ENERGY CONSUMPTION?

3D printing as advanced technology has a bright future, as it is environmentally friendly. Compared to traditional production, 3D printing represents a new trend, where more simple production processes are enabled with less material used (filament). Environmental protection includes programs aimed at reducing risks of pollution, such as hazardous materials and waste, fuels, and oils.

The production of various products by 3D printing is expected to consume between 41% and 64% less electricity. In addition to saving energy and reducing emissions, the development and production of filaments for 3D printing are also essential, as they are made from natural materials and are renewable. The filament is environmentally friendly in this way.

FLASHFORGE HAS DEVELOPED A BRAND NEW FILAMENT FOR 3D PRINTING

There are several types of filaments for 3D printing. Flashforge recently developed a cellulosic biocomposite wood material to replace plastic. The properties of the filament are slightly different, which is especially important in the production of more precise pieces, but the appearance remains the same. It represents a new choice for those striving to create a better living environment.

NEW FILAMENT FOR 3D PRINTING

The Chinese lantern, a cultural heritage from the Dongshan Elegant collection, made by 3D printing and filament from natural wood materials, has been very successful even in cultural relics competitions. It is printed with a filament made of natural wood materials and embodies nature in our lives while depicting a local civilization captured in vivid images of an ancient Chinese landscape. It represents a combination of nature, culture, the use of environmentally friendly materials, and modern technology.
