Reflow: Quality 3D Printer Filament that’s Ethical & Sustainable

The World's 1st Community Made Recycled 3D Print Filament

What do we do?

Reflow empowers local makers everywhere to create Recycled 3D print filament, the ink of 3D printers. Our mission is to make the next industrial revolution both sustainable and inclusive.

We believe 3D printing has the power to transform our societies for the better. That’s why we invest in local 3D printing startups changing manufacturing in developing regions and make sure that waste pickers get their fair share.

How it works

1. Collect

High Quality Plastic

By careful selection we get the plastic that's perfect for your filament!

2. Clean & Shred

Prepare Waste for Processing

Together with local waste pickers clean PET bottles and shred them into 6mm flakes.

3. Transform

Turn Flakes into Filament

We use a low-cost, open-source extruder that converts PET plastic flakes into 3D print filament.

4. Test

Ensure High Quality

Together with universities, maker spaces and our corporate partners we extensively test our filament.

5. Send

Delivered to your Door

We ship our filament in recyclable packaging directly to you so you can print whatever your heart desires.

6. Share

Profits Flow Back to Communities

We will reinvest 25% of our profits back into the communities where we work to help build a sustainable future ripe with opportunity
