Recycle the Unrecycable 

KEN3D is fully aware of the repercussion of plastic into our environment and this is why our recycling movement is so important for us. When we talk about 3D printing, we often think of the benefits that the technology generates towards the environment: less waste material compared to traditional manufacturing, the possibility of recycling some waste, local production resulting in less physical exchanges and therefore transport, etc. 

Our process:

Our main goal is to minimize our waste and optimise our proceed. In this case, we want to give second life to all these objects that otherwise would be thrown and creates value where you do not necessarily expect it. During the conception of many of our product, we kept finding that a large percentage of our 3D prints ended up in the garbage – mostly because they were obsolete or out of date prototypes that had since been improved.

We are inviting every 3D printer owner to contact us and we will collect all your waste. Once a month, we will do a run and collect every little piece including any waste and spool of filament .

Recycling 3D filament

3D Printing is becoming more sensitive to plastic pollution that is created while printing the objects.  To overcome this thing we need to do the recycling of 3D filament from waste plastic and failed 3D prints.


The biggest environmental issue that comes along with 3D Printing is the leftover plastic filament or spool after printing your 3D object.



Plastic waste continues to find its way into landfills and waterbodies, posing a significant ecological challenge that may send Planet Earth to its knees. In a year alone, thousands of marine creatures succumb to plastic entanglement while millions stand the risk of plastic ingestion.



This is why conscientious 3D printing enthusiasts are resorting to green 3D printing, which involves reducing, reusing, and recycling excess plastic from failed prints. Digital sculptors need to understand how to make good use of their PLA and ABS if they want to control this mayhem-causing material that allegedly takes somewhere from 10 to 1000 years to decompose.
