    Dear Producer:

    I wanted to send over a release on Dimension Polymers, a Chicago-based technology firm specializing in the development of the first 3D printing filament made from recycled plastic.

    The firm’s founders are set to dramatically change the 3D printing industry with respect to sustainability with their new, environmentally conscience filament made from recycled plastic.

    With the 3D printing industry set to balloon over the next 5 years, plastic consumption is expected to skyrocket producing an increase in greenhouse gas production.

    Introducing the first 3D printing filament made from recycled plastic will change the direction of the industry’s impact on the environment and climate change dramatically by reducing emissions by more than 66%.

    They’ve just launched their Kickstarter campaign (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/952621887/sustainable-3d-printing-filament) to introduce the product to the marketplace and have enjoyed brisk interest with 19 backers in just 12 hours of crowdfunding, comprising 10% of their overall goal.

    Would you be interested in an interview with the founders or perhaps more information on the firm and their work?

    Please do let me know. I would be happy to coordinate any additional details for a possible interview.

    Many best regards,

    David Henley

    Dimension Polymers Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Produce the First Professionally Engineered 3D Printing Filament

    New 3D printing material expected to reduce anticipated carbon emissions by 66%.

    Chicago, IL – Chicago-based technology start-up Dimension Polymers has developed the first professionally engineered 3D printing filament made from recycled plastic. With the growth expected in the digital manufacturing industry, the innovation of a sustainable 3D printing filament will have a massive impact on the fast growing market.

    Wells Fargo Wealth Management 2014 research projects that 3D printing will grow from a $288M market in 2012 to $5.7B in 2017. 3D printing as a technology has already demonstrated vast capacity for application across a wide variety of industries from medical to automotive to art.

    Yet standard 3D printing material is currently produced from petroleum-based virgin plastic, which causes harmful carbon emissions to be released into the environment. With the growth rate that is anticipated in the industry in just a few short years, the impact of 3D printing on the global environment could, in fact, be staggering.

    Dimension Polymers Co-founders Gerald Galazin and Mark Sherman have been working extensively to create a sustainable filament solution that is expected to reduce those carbon emissions by 66%. The two have been refining their formula since the launch of their firm in June of 2014. After rounds of beta testing with industry stakeholders and manufacturers, they have successfully developed a product that is refined and ready to bring to market. Galazin and Sherman have just launched a Kickstarter campaign (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/952621887/sustainable-3d-printing-filament) that will introduce their proprietary filament to the marketplace. They’ve already enjoyed brisk interest with 19 backers comprising 10% of their funding goal within the first 12 hours of the campaign.

    Working with beta testing participants in the industry has helped to hone not only the entrepreneurs’ material, but also valuable industry associations that will serve as a firm foundation for the two as they move forward in their work. Said Galazin, “Working with recycling companies, filament manufactures, the Makerspace community, and independent hobbyists has allowed us to continually receive valuable feedback to help improve our product. The process has been fairly organic and we have been lucky enough to build great relationships with our partners, some of whom will ultimately be customers.”

    Dimension Polymers’ proprietary filament recently received approval to carry the esteemed Kingfisher Recycled Material Logo by SCS Global, one of the nation’s leading third-party environmental, sustainability, and food quality certification firms. The development is a significant step in distinguishing the new material from the standard offerings in the marketplace made from virgin plastic.

    As Sherman indicates, having an eco-friendly 3D printing filament in the space will actually help to drive demand—their comprehensive approach to sustainability offering a less harmful way of engaging this growing technology. “Our package, product, and process are all designed to provide a greener alternative for the 3D printing industry,” said Sherman. “Once the industry realizes just how functional our product is, we anticipate a large shift in demand for filament made with recycled material. We hope to build awareness of the environmental footprint of 3D printing, and, in turn, spark further demand for eco-friendly materials.”

    In addition to refining their formula, Galazin and Sherman have finalized agreements with a prominent industry manufacturer and distributor to ensure capacity to fulfill the variety of rewards they’ve developed for backers of their crowdfunding campaign. From digital manufacturers to 3D printing hobbyists, options to get in on the ground floor of this potentially industry-changing material abound.

    About the Global Impact of Traditional 3D Printing Filament: Annual plastic consumption as a 3D printing material is estimated at 30 million pounds and is projected to reach 250 million pounds by 2020, representing a 40% annual growth rate. The petroleum required to produce the amount of plastic (2.2 pounds) in a standard 3D printer cartridge results in approximately 8 pounds of carbon emissions.

    Factoring in industry growth projections, production of 3D printing plastic will result in the consumption of 1.4 million barrels of oil and generate over 800 million pounds of carbon emissions annually by 2020.

    About Dimension Polymers: Dimension Polymers produces sustainable, engineering-grade 3D printing filament made from recycled plastic. We ensure every inch of filament meets a strict set of standards verified by an A2LA accredited laboratory. Our plastic source is certified by SCS Global Services1 to ensure our filament is made from a minimum of 95% recycled plastic. The material has been thoroughly tested to ensure it meets or exceeds the performance of the highest quality plastic filaments currently on the market.
