Hi, I’m Mark, An Industrial Design Engineering student.
Currently, I’m working on my graduation project, the design of an Open-source plastic plate press for bottom-up recycling in low resource areas.
I’m planning on finishing v1 of my design before the end om May, this year, but a lot has to be done still.
in a few weeks I’ll start the real design work, and around the end of march I’ll start building a prototype.
But first I need to find out what people expect from such a machine, this is where your help comes in. If you are someone that would like to recycle plastic waste through use of a plate press, please help me and tell me what I need to know. To make it easy I made an online survey: https://mark171.typeform.com/to/yrgyP5
I’ll keep you posted on the results, developments and creations in future posts.
