Description

In 2009, discarded TVs, computers, peripherals (including printers, scanners, fax machines) mice, keyboards, and cell phones totaled about 2.37 million short tons. Most of our e-waste ends up in landfills-mostly in the developing world-where toxic metals leach into the environment. This open source project aims to convert some of that e-waste into usable 3D printers.==== Software ====Retr3d uses python and FreeCAD to 3D model printable parts for the construction of more 3D printers. Through globalVars.py dimensions of procured e-waste are turned into customized 3D models. E-Waste 3D Printer's software depends on FreeCAD's python scripting API. FreeCAD can be found (http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Download here).
