The Lyman Filament Extruder May Drop the Cost of Desktop 3D Printing Forever

This is exactly the kind of innovation that's needed from both high- and low-end system/material manufacturers. I just purchased a toothbrush whose handle is made from recycled yogurt cups; it's not done via 3D printing but does demonstrate new ways of looking at old problems. In the same way, though I realize there are extra challenges to starting with a "pure" source for any kind of material reuse/recycling, it's exciting to see ideas and progress. I like a mix of proprietary (competitive) methods and open-source opportunities.
