Monash University Master's candidate Rob Eales’ research project aims to close the loop between 3D printing and recycling, by creating a system where items previously printed can be recycled in the same system. He believes online sharing of ideas and design will encourage a state of mass customisation. He envisages consumers’ tastes becoming more individual as they become exposed to more ideas and designs. ‘The plan is to relocalise manufacturing,’ he says.
