World First for Cornwall !

Monofilament fishing net to 3D printed form using off-the-shelf equipment

As far as I know I have just produced the first ever 3d printed body made entirely from used monofilament fishing net.

This was Net 4. Unwashed. Shredded. Extruded then printed using a Wanhao Duplicator 3 at 260C.

The body was just a simple test piece but it worked first time.

Champagne for the man !
