Remember, you're not just limited to plastic bottles! You can recycle used plastic bags and files as well. If you can't find the right shade you're looking for, or if perhaps you don't consume much plastic in your day to day life (good for you!) then we have an environmentally friendly solution waiting for you.
We will be providing 3D bottle strips ready for use with Renegade. You'll be able to buy a spool of 500 grams (305m/1000ft) for just £15 or $20. This means you get to feel good about helping the environment while saving more than 5 times in comparison with industry leading competitors. You can find more info on this and other extras above!
Yes, we have done our research and the use of PET bottles and PE bags is identical to the use of preexisting standard PET, Polyethylene, or Polylactic acid (PLA) filaments so there won't be any bad fumes in your home or office. You're safe with Renegade.
Most ridges are easily eliminated by heating the bottle for 1 to 2 minutes. During the heating process the plastic gets slightly softer and the internal pressure (as the cap should remain closed) straightens and rectifies the bottle's surface, automatically eliminating ridges.
You'll be able to see this process performed on a ridged bottle by a heat gun on this video:
Please feel free to perform this test with your stove on low heat and any bottle. In a couple of minutes you will see that your bottle will be smooth and ready for cutting.
The main cause behind the odour issues others are experiencing with 3D pens is the type of filaments used. ABS is the biggest problem. When you’re using a plastic bottle with Renegade, it’s just like you’re using a standard PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) filament, likewise, when you’re using a plastic file, it’s exactly as if you’re using a regular PP (Polypropylene) filament. There are no odour issues with either of these; we performed over 100 tests. The only time we experienced any odour at all was when using ABS filaments.
Yes, you will be able to use Renegade in any region with both 110V and 240V voltage. We’ll send out a survey at the end of the campaign, where you’ll be asked to choose the plug type that suits your country’s electrical sockets.
The main requisite for using the Renegade PRO as a 3D Printer Head is the available space for the pen’s installation. There needs to be sufficient space over the printing head so that the pen does not collide with the top of your 3D printer as it operates. As we’ve mentioned, we are working on a 3D printer that will be powered by the same green technology. Our main partner in this endeavour has tested Renegade’s capabilities as a 3D printer head replacement on Prusa and delta style printers like Kossel. If you have any doubts, send us a direct message.
