There's a nearly endless list of items you could make for your kitchen on a 3D printer (one of our favorites is still custom cookie cutters).

But soon you'll be able to make 3D printed items using things found in your kitchen as well.

The company 3Dom USA has developed a new filament that works in most standard 3D printers that is made in part from the byproducts of the coffee industry.

Yes, all of the things you print with the new coffee-based filament will end up brown, but it's a small price to pay for a more eco-friendly option. We can just imagine making pour-over coffee using a V60-style coffee dripper made on a 3D printer.
