Manufacturing 3D printing filament was first a way for Armor to recycle its own reclaimed plastic waste. But now, this business unit is helping to close the loop on sustainability for plastic 3D printed products.
Certification will assist company in measuring and improving environmental efficiency.
This downloadable infographic illustrates how 3D printing can be applied for more sustainable manufacturing through every stage: Material, Design, Manufacturing, Product and End-of-Life.
Mighty Buildings wants to change the construction industry with prefabricated houses 3D printed on demand from thermoset polymer composite. Two such buildings have already been installed.

3D printing helps to simplify both manufacturing of a product and material recapture at the end of its usable life. The key is having a plan at the beginning. More in this video, the last in our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing makes possible new and different consumer goods, but also changes the buyer's relationship to those goods. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
3D printing can support the circular economy by offering an alternative to centralized mass production. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.
The circular economy needs the lightweight, optimized and efficient designs that only 3D printing can provide. More in this video, part of our series on 3D Printing and the Circular Economy.

What does it mean to be sustainable, to manufacture in a circular economy? And where does 3D printing fit? These questions and more answered in this video, the first of our 3D Printing and the Circular Economy series.
Retraction Footwear offers a new way of buying flip-flops that are made to suit each customer. But the company also represents a new way of thinking about production, in a circular economy loop that encompasses material, design, manufacturing, product and end-of-life.
MolyWorks is future-proofing the circular economy for metals with small-footprint atomization technology that converts metal scrap into additive manufacturing powder on the spot. But that's not the end of the story.
Model No. operates at the intersection of technology and design. Its custom furniture is made on demand through a combination of proprietary large-format 3D printers, sustainable materials and a sleek online storefront.
When the greatest share of a product’s environmental impact comes from producing its feedstock, selecting the right material is critical. For 3D printing and manufacturing in plastic, biopolymer could be the first step toward a more sustainable model.
