Hi Campers, this is an update about the very slow but steady progress with the opensource redesign of The Green Machine with resources where you can follow along.

Green Machine Opensource Update

We are now working with the Duet 3D opensource CNC Electronics Community & Opensource Lily Pellet Extruder by Recycl3DPrint to totally redesign the CNC electronics hardware for The Green Machine so it can manage the industrial (yet affordable) output of the Lily Pellet extruder. Follow along here!

Manufacture Update - August 2021

Things have been incredibly hard for these last few months. I am still encountering many many failures but the net result is progress in the direction that I am working towards and hopefully soon, when we fix these last few failed parts, we will be where we want to be.

More panel progress

I am happy to say that after five years of trying, I’ve finally managed to produce a very strong, full scale outdoor construction panel made from our 100%: non-toxic, plant-based, recyclable, biodegradable biocomposites. Thanks to allthe supporters of our crowdfunding campaign I was able to put together “The Green manufacture System (a large format 3-D printer) and test various different methods for extruding the biomaterials that we have developed with our sponsors.

Prototype Green Manufacture System Assembly

The Prototype "Green Manufacture System", a massive 3D printer, was too big for the garage at Green Campus Ellanore soo we have made a quick workaround...‍ Here's a timelapse video and summary.

UPM Formi Biocomposite Pellets for 3D printing

99% bio-based biocomposite for 3D printing. A PLA like product with wood celulose fibre re-enforcement. UPM Formi biocomposite has high performance qualities with lower carbon footprint than fossil-based materials. The biocomposite combines mouldability of plastics and strength and sustainability of wood. Compared with traditional oil-based plastic, it reduces the product’s carbon emission by -50 %. It is a cost- and resource-efficient alternative for reducing the environmental impact of products.
