[feature request] imprint recycling code

Recommended Posts

Posted · [feature request] imprint recycling code

One idea just struck my mind: How about adding a feature which enables the user to place a recycling code on the printed object that's supposed to help in recycling 3d printed waste parts. It's a standard in industrial plastic products that helps in the recycling process - why not use the same for home-printed stuff?

 

One fact that would make this feature useless is the limitation in recycling codes for usual 3d printed polymers. But there's already a basic approach to address this issue:
