How to make a 1.5 m Sheetpress

The Precious Plastic team in France redesigned the Sheetpress to make 1.5 m sheets of recycle plastic. This means more plastic recycled, of course, but also more design opportunities, and getting a step closer to industry standards of 1.2x2.4 m.

And best of all? We made a How-to so you can make it yourself!
