We worked hard during the winter, documented the CubeFactory 2 and made it available as Creative Commons Public License on GitHub. Feel free to build and further develop the concept. Any improvements of the work documented here are welcome. For example, the power could alternatively be sourced from car batteries or generated through wind, water or other renewable resources. While the 3D-printer is an independent open source project by Pursa/Hephestos, the Filament Recycler is an own development for the use in the CubeFactory and offers a lot of room for improvement.
The CubeFactory 2 is an autonomous and portable mini factory with own energy and material supply. It embeds three modules: a 3D-printer, a plastic recycler producing filament for the 3D-printer for closed-loop material supply as well as photovoltaic panels and batteries for energy supply.
