Achievements Details


Vidya’s Mechanical Engineering students presented  an innovative idea that aims to address environmental concerns caused by plastic waste and reduce the cost of 3D printing. The students developed a groundbreaking machine capable of transforming waste plastic bottles into usable 3D printer filament.

This machine ‘PLASTIFILAMENTIZER’ involves the assembly of different specialised units like a cutting unit, stripping unit, and an extrusion unit, which help to transform plastic bottles into filament, which is wound onto a spool, ready for 3D printing.This invention offers significant advantages, including a reduced environmental impact from plastic waste and cost savings in 3D printing. The team envisions automating the machine in the future, allowing public access for bottle deposits and streamlined production processes. This will greatly help to minimize plastic waste in public places like railway stations, shopping malls, etc.
