Using wood waste to 3D print

Desktop Metal, a U.S. based company, is diverting sawdust from landfills to use as 3D printing material to create both functional and decorative objects. The combination of lignin and cellulose in the wood makes it a flexible material that can be used to make complex designs that look like natural wood. Objects such as tables, chairs, bowls and more can be printed, used and then broken down and reprinted into something new. Learn more about the company.
