Raise3D, a global provider of additive manufacturing solutions for SMEs and LSEs, has intrduced its “Go Green Initiative” – a commitment to pursue the best knowledge and follow the best practices with the aim of minimizing its ecological footprint. 3D printing has been instrumental in creating sustainable practices and contributing to a circular economy – from sustainable materials, to the very nature of additive manufacturing, with its inherent reduction of waste.

Raise3D, as a designer and manufacturer of additive manufacturing equipment, being “Green” translates into designing products that can sustain heavy work with full operational effectiveness for many years. With that goal in mind, the company makes a constant effort to bring software and hardware upgrades. These improvements extend the productive life of Raise3D’s products. The company’s machines also include features such as the Power Saving Mode.

With the Go Green Initiative, Raise3D will show to the public what the company is doing already, and is planning to do, and welcomes all contributions from customers and the general public. The company has also, as of today, started gradually replacing the plastic spools, with cardboard spools.

Raise3D introduced Go Green Initiative - with the aim of minimizing the company's ecological footprint through best practices.Initially, six Premium filaments will benefit from the new spool, including PLA, ABS, ASA, PETG, PC, and TPU-95A. The spool uses glue that can withstand the high temperatures of filament drying procedures and has been designed to ensure that the quality and reliability of the printing process remains unchanged. The spools also now have a scale printed on the outside, indicating the amount of filament left. Customers can expect the new spools to ship with their Premium filament order from November 2022 onwards, depending on the location.

“The vision we all have is to have ocean’s plastic pollution transformed into filament we can use in 3D printing, contributing to a circular economy. While there are still many challenges to get there, the innovative process sometimes surprises us with relevant leaps forward, and so we shall hope the dream will one day become a reality, even if it may take one or two decades. In the meantime, it’s our responsibility to implement all the actions that are possible already, and we are committed to do so. We want to make 3DP always look greener on our side. We invite you to visit our Go Green Initiative homepage, and we welcome all your ideas and suggestions that contribute to the Green Initiative by contacting us at gogreen@raise3d.com,” said Diogo Quental, coordinator of Raise3D’s Go Green Initiative.
