FormFutura Elevates Sustainable 3D Printing with the Launch of ReFill 2.0


FormFutura, a Dutch 3D printing material manufacturer, has launched its ReFill 2.0 system, a notable advancement in sustainable 3D printing methods. The system is designed to significantly decrease packaging waste by up to 80% and lower shipping volume as much as 55%. Instead of conventional, individually spooled filament, the ReFill 2.0 system utilizes a more eco-friendly approach, with filament coiled around a cardboard core. The core is then secured with a pair of reusable flanges, which users can either 3D print themselves using FormFutura’s supplied STL files or buy them pre-printed.

The ReFill 2.0 system’s unique feature is its use of reusable Velcro straps as a substitute for single-use alternatives. Not only do these straps secure the flanges, they also allow for easy swapping between filaments, improving user convenience and lessening material waste. The system can be used with most FDM printers, including the AMS system, and comes in 750g and 2000g coils. There are future plans to introduce larger sizes.

Based on the feedback provided by print farms and production companies, it’s been noted that the ReFill 2.0 system significantly enhances efficiency in capacity utilization. The Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder of FormFutura BV, Rien Schuurhuis, stress the system’s correspondence with corporate vision. The company aims to provide an unparalleled 3D printing experience while also fostering a positive impact on the future.

The ReFill 2.0 system by FormFutura offers an effective and user-friendly solution for waste reduction in 3D printing. Its unique strategy in filament packaging and distribution not only helps in resource conservation but also navigates the industry towards a future with greater sustainability.
