RE: Sometimes Things Just Go Wrong

Interesting prints, I've never known how these are made...

What materials are used in making these?
And what do you do with them if I may ask? :)

Hello, thank you for the comment and question.

Currently I use PLA (polylactic acid), a biodegradable substance.

I try not to waste much because 1000 gram rolls average around 20 USD per roll and can be expensed pretty quickly with regular printing.
The local trash facilities will process it because it's environment friendly.
For larger failed prints , I save them in a bin for a recycle process I am planning for the future.

I print all kinds of things, currently gardening tools and supplies are probably top of the list for me, and also tool fixtures and electronics casings :)
